I often go through what I don’t wear and think of ways to change them so i will wear it. Though sometimes, the damage done from scissors can be irreversible (r.i.p. my soft black cotton tee).posted over 4 years ago
I dontate them. Unless it’s almost brand new I will see if a friend wants it.posted over 4 years ago
My wardrobe update ritual –
Break out clothes for new season (summer and winter are my main ones)
Rummage for stuff I know I won’t wear, wonder why I kept it, set aside.
From this pile, I throw out stuff that is just icky and the good stuff I give to a friend who wears a similar size.
Then with what is left, hang it up to get ready or go shopping for coordinating tops or bottoms.posted over 4 years ago
I either edit them into something I like or donate them. No use hanging onto clothing you won’t wear!posted over 4 years ago
i give it away to orphans/unfortunate people,it feels good and you don’t put it to waste!posted over 4 years ago
If I think it could look good then I will sew it up and alter it, if not then I donate it.posted over 4 years ago
if you are near a buffalo exchange and can put in the effort to re-do any buttons, torn seams or holes, they have a decent cash/trade rate. otherwise, they will lower the value of your clothes and give you less than expected. i suggest donating to goodwill or st. vincent de paul. the latter over the former, since st. vincent de paul does a great job reaching out to the non-profits and helping those in need.
or try clothing swaps.posted over 4 years ago
I try not to be a clothing hoarder but sometimes clothes are just too hard to let go of. I usually give my old clothes to my cousin who’s 15. Stuff that she won’t wear I usually just donate. My friends and I are planning on having a private garage sale soon to sell and swap our items amongst ourselves. It’s a great way to change up your wardrobe without being wasteful.posted over 4 years ago
I usually donate my stuff….but I do hold on to my clothese for awhile…usually they just sit in my closet…or I will alter them to make them ‘fresh’ again…posted over 4 years ago
I usually donate them or keep them and rewear them when I have an outfit in mind for it!posted over 4 years ago
or you are bored with them? Fashion is cycling, dear ^^
So in my opinion, make some DIY project from those clothes (you can choose, do you like the prints? use as scarf! etc.
Or you can buy some new outfit especially outers so you can match your “garage clothes” to your new pieces!
I think you have to re-arrange the way you sort your clothes. I mean, if you labeled a box with “garage” or “un used”, your mind forbid your creativity in fashion to try to mix your outfits into a new look.
So, how about sort your outfits by colours, materials, or prints? Me, I sort my wardrobe by sleeveless, sleeve, long sleeve, shirt, outers, jeans, shorts, skirt.
What do you think?

what I like to do is reconstruct the things I’m bored with like cutting it up adding spikes or studs stuff like that donate the things I know I will never wear again and if something is damaged beyond repair toss itposted over 4 years ago
I always try not to buy more than I need. I also only buy clothing that I know I will love and will be able to work into multiple outfits. If I want to get rid of some items, I try to sell them to the resale shops in my town first. Whatever isn’t accepted by them gets donated to charities. Clothing swaps with friends are a super fun way of getting rid of old clothes, but then you end up with different items and it doesn’t really clear up space :)posted about 3 years ago
I sell them. Usually to Plato’s Closet, because they tend to pay a bit more here than other stores.
I also am starting an online thrift store to sell my old clothes, so that’s what I do, too.
