Does the New Year signal a fresh start for you?
My diet is still waiting for the full "clean up", but I spent a few hours this New Year cleaning out my closet and cabinets. I was reading in "Real Simple" magazine how visual clutter can confuse your brain and cause anxiety. No thanks. I did a big cleaning of our closet and kitchen cabinets.
But now what do I do with the clothes we don't use?
I've always taken clothes to Plato's closet. They buy gently used, name brand clothes. I always, however hate going there. I always feel so un-cool when they tell me my clothes are "not a current style". But for some reason I keep trying. It's like coupons, I have to use them if I think I can. I took two huge bags to Plato's in hopes of a big return....
I also tried an online resale site called "Like Twice". I first read about the site on Julie's blog. You tell them what brands you're sending (they currently only accept women's clothes) and they give you a pre-paid mailing label. Once they receive your order they make you an offer. Any clothes they don't want they will donate to Goodwill or mail back to you for $5.
However now I have a ton of clothes left that need a home. I guess I have a drive to Goodwill in my future.
Today at Evolution Fitness is our New Year's kickoff event.
What do you do with your old clothes?
Love and kicking off,
