Seven Days of Organizing TIPS – Day # 4 – ‘Overhaul Your Wardrobe’
DAY # 4 – TIP # 4
OK, so it’s time to let go of/get rid of some of the clothing that you haven’t worn in a year or more.
Pull out items from your closet (clothing, shoes, accessories) that don’t fit or you don’t love. Arrange a clothing swap with friends. Once a year, my housemate and I coordinate a Women’s Afternoon Tea and Clothing Swap. We invite our friends, and friends of friends to attend and bring items they no longer wear to trade with others.
It’s fun! We talk over tea, try on lots of clothing, and leave with a free new wardrobe! Whatever clothing is left over, (and there is a lot left!) we donate to a local women’s charity. You can choose any charity that appeals to you.
Here’s a tip regarding clothing swaps: Bring less clothing home than you donated to the swap. Bring a bag that can hold only so much clothing, so you don’t add more to your wardrobe than you already had.
What clothing and accessories are you going to get rid of? I’d love to know where you are donating it to.
