TOO MUCH CLOTHING
NOTHING NEW HERE
The most delightful thing for me about all this information is it provides me with a framework for going on my own minimalist journey.
There are a number of reasons why clothing items may be redundant in your wardrobe:
- Wrong Size
- Duplicate Items
- No Longer Useful
- In Need of Repair
- Stuff you Never Wear
1. Wrong Size
2. Duplicate Items
3. No Longer Useful
Your minimalist wardrobe should reflect your (new) life and activities.
4. In Need of Repair
Once repaired you can decide if they are important in your wardrobe or better to be passed on for re-use.
5. Stuff You Never Wear
WAIT AND SEE
WHAT TO DO WITH THE EXCESS
- Swap & Re-use Parties – these events are becoming more and more popular in this climate of re-use, recycle and resistance to fast fashion. If you don’t already have a local event, perhaps you could start one yourself with your friends or a local sewing group.
- Charity Shops – Any items that are clean and in good repair are welcome in most charity shops. Please don’t send them any clothes that are no longer wearable or dirty. They already have an issue with a lot of donated clothing not being suitable for resale and causing a huge amount of waste that costs them in removal.
- Sell Them Online – Ebay and Facebook marketplace are popular venues for the resale of unwanted clothing.
