Ah, the amount of times I look at my wardrobe and think ‘I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR’ has gotta be a daily occurrence. I pretty much rotate the same 4 dresses for a few months, buy some more, forget about these ones and move on to new ones in some kind of vicious cycle. I’ve not even changed dress size since I was about16 but somehow things start to ‘not fit the same’ or just look rubbish. Moving house it the ideal opportunity to go through my masses and masses of garments and sort out the wearable from the woeful. I hate throwing stuff away though so I’m dividing it into 3 piles…. KEEP, SELL, BIN.
Basically anything I’ve worn in the last year I will keep, but if I’ve bought it and not worn it within a year that is in the donate/sell pile. Then anything which is basically rubbish which I was keeping to recycle in to something new I will bin. I have a TON of off cuts and bits of clothes that I always plan to get crafty with and make some little plush toys with, but I never get around to it and there’s just way too much work that’ll need to go in to it to make the fabric even usable! There’s so many options for what to do with my old clothes which are wearable for other people but not for me nowadays too, I could take them the charity shop for some good karma, or I could use a clothing recycling service or something like that. I’ll de damned if I’m using ebay to sell clothes again anyway, what’s happened to ebay over the past year or so?! Last time I tried to sell something they never paid yet still gave me negative feedback. Weirdrie Barlow magnet over there! The aim is that I’m trying to narrow the clothing down to just one massive suitcase, which is going to me a task within itself as when I moved last time it was 5 trips emptying and filling said suitcase alongside 3 of those massive Ikea bags full… I’m never going to do it am I?
