out with the with the new.

Shopping is most definitely my favourite hobby. Whether it’s a new top, jeans, jacket or shoes, I can always find an excuse to make a new addition to my wardrobe. It is so easy to shop nowadays too! Every store that I love has an online store, and not only that, but there are so many online stores that exist by themselves. This just gives me more options. I can always compare styles, colours, materials, sizes, and best of all, prices.

I find myself constantly accumulating things that I have bought and as I do so, I run out of space in my drawers and my wardrobe. Some people are like me, and therefore find new places to store things. For example, underneath my bed is the perfect place to keep shoes that only really come out on special occasions. And like me again, sooner or later, you find that this is simply ridiculous and you face the harsh reality that is…YOU HAVE TOO MANY CLOTHES!

(cleaning my room - out with the old)

This is a harsh reality that none of us really want to face because as time passes we collect some unique clothes that we can never get again. On the other hand, we also collect some pieces that have simply gone out of style and that we will never wear again. When this is the case, this is when we know it is time to let them go. There are so many ways to get rid of clothes that you don’t want anymore, but I think for me, one of the best ways is getting cash for old clothes.

 (got some monies - in with the new)

This is simply because you can clear up all the clutter that is the big heap of clothes sitting on the floor in the corner of your room, and get some money for it. For me this is perfect, especially because I can sometimes have expensive taste and I constantly have my eye on designer handbags or shoes. I can put the cash that I get from selling some of my old clothes towards a more lavish purchase. 

There is no perfect time like the beginning of a new year to get rid of some of the clothes that you have had forever. So who’s with me…out with the old and in with the new?

  1. I'm a hoarder too! Most of my clothes are quite simple so I can wear them for years but there's a good few impulse purchases in there that I've worn once or hate the material of so can't wear! It's a good idea to use the money towards more expensive things that will last :) xx

    1. we sound exactly the same!
      I love the idea...I also love that there are so many options when it comes to wanting to dispose of your clothes.
