These days, most people have far too many clothes. If you are one of them and you want to find a way of getting rid of them then read on…
Give them to someone else
The first step is always to try on the item before you do anything with it. Sometimes, things end up in the back of the wardrobe for no good reason. Often, there is nothing actually wrong with the item. It may be that it just didn’t fit, and now that you have lost those few extra pounds you can wear it again. Therefore, it makes sense to double-check before you get rid of any of your clothes.
Any item that you actually do not want can easily be given to someone. If you know of friends and families who would appreciate your old clothes try them first. Should they not want them could you give them away to a local charity? They will then give them to somebody who they know is in need, sell the clothes for cash or send them away for re-cycling. That way, you know that your old clothes will not end up in landfill causing damage to the environment.
Sell your old clothes for profit
However, if you are yourself short of cash it makes sense to first try to sell your old clothes. Doing so will bring benefits to both the person who buys your clothes and to you. They will get access to affordable clothes and you will generate some much-needed extra cash.
Virtually every kind of clothing has some kind of value. The rising cost of raw materials such as cotton means that even a T-shirt has a second hand value. Using the web, you can quickly find companies who are interested in buying second-hand clothing and get a quote from one for your pile of clothes.
If you have items that are in good condition, it is even possible to sell them on sites like eBay. Designer clothes sell especially well. However, there is also strong demand for ordinary clothing items especially those from the bigger High Street chains.
You can also advertise design items on classified listings websites. There are even some places on the High Street where you can sell your old clothes for profit. Items such as suits, wedding dresses and designer label clothing all have a significant second hand value. Therefore, there are dealers out there who will buy them from you, put them in their shop, sell them and give you a percentage.
Do the same with your accessories
To boost your profits even further consider selling your accessories. There is a growing market for second hand shoes, handbags and other items. If your items are in good condition and are designer labels, you can sell them to either online or on the High Street.
These days, there is no need to throw anything away. Everything has a value and the more you recycle the better it is for the environment and those around you.
