We all have a closet or drawer in our rooms that is full of clothing we never wear. It’s hard to give up clothing. You look at a pair of Timberlands that you swore you would wear all the time, and haven’t even taken out of the box. And even when you think about giving them away, you think: “but what if I want to wear them one day?” It’s a hard pill to swallow, but if you haven’t worn them yet, you’re probably not going to wear them ever.
That’s why it’s important to be honest with yourself and really think about what you do and don’t need. And the plus side to cleaning out your closet, you can actually make some money from it too. There’s tons of apps that you can sell and buy clothing at, so if you’re looking for a sign to get up off the couch and clean out your closet: THIS IS IT!!!!
