In this blog post, I’m sharing 10 tips to help you get rid of clothes you can’t wear (and stop buying more). From donating to consigning and everything in between, these tips will help you declutter your closet for good!
Why we hang on to clothes we can’t wear
It’s easy to hang on to clothes we can’t wear. They may be clothes that we once loved and wore all the time, but no longer fit into our lifestyle. Or, they may be clothes that we never really liked in the first place but feel guilty about getting rid of. Whatever the reason, holding on to clothes we can’t wear is a waste of time and space.
There are a few reasons why we hang on to clothes we can’t wear. First, we may think that we’ll eventually lose weight and be able to fit into them again. Second, we may think that fashion trends will come back around and those clothes will be in style again. Third, we may have sentimental attachments to certain clothing items. And finally, we may simply not want to deal with the hassle of getting rid of them.
Whatever the reason, it’s important to let go of clothes we can’t wear. If they don’t fit our lifestyle or body type anymore, chances are slim that we’ll ever wear them again. And if they’re not in style, hanging on to them won’t make them come back into fashion. Instead of hanging on to old clothes, take the time to donate them or sell them so someone else can enjoy wearing them.
