I’ve always been a big proponent of cleaning out the closet.
Whether we’re talking metaphorically or your actual wardrobe, in my mind, less mess is more freedom. I try to go through my clothes at least twice a year, but sometimes I’ll crack a few months early. Especially if, you know, I’m feeling out of control in other aspects of my life.
Yes, I did just describe my addiction to cleaning in much the same way other people might describe an eating disorder. I’m a bit obsessed with cleaning.
The point is, I love opening my closet/drawers and seeing order, and it makes my every day go smoother too.
Normally, I just dump everything at Goodwill. It’s fast, easy, and instant. But this time around, I found myself taking clothes out of the closet that were in good condition, I just didn’t wear them anymore. It seemed like a waste to just get rid of them.
So I decided to try something new.
If you haven’t discovered it yet, allow me to introduce you to Threadflip. Here’s how they describe themselves:
Threadflip is your destination for buying, selling and sharing fabulous fashion with favorite friends & like-minded fashionistas. Threadflip enables you to easily thin your racks, recoup some of your investment and make room for new finds.
All good things, right? They sell everything from super high-end brands (located in their White Glove Closet) to every day classics. If you’re interested in what I’m selling, check out my “closet” here.
I know what you’re thinking:Justine, is this just an excuse to try to get us to buy your crap?
You guys. Trust me. I would not try to sell crap. The crap ended up in the pile still destined for Goodwill. What pile?
The stuff in my Threadflip closet is the stuff I would loan to a friend without embarrassment. Seriously, most of it has only been worn a couple of times (if at all), I just decided it was worth less to me than the extra space in the closet.
Have questions about anything you see? Let me know! And if you have a Threadflip account, feel free to leave the link in a comment and I’ll check out your stuff.
