Five Reasons to Declutter and Donate in the New Year
Tuesday, January 2, 2018
The New Year is a time for reflection, recommitment and… re-organization! It’s the perfect time to re-gift unneeded holiday presents, get a fresh start with your wardrobe and donate to your favorite local thrift store – Thrift Culture!
Thrift Culture offers new and gently-used clothing, accessories and housewares to the public. Vouchers are also provided for families in need to shop for free. The best part? Every Thrift Culture purchase benefits kids living in poverty right here in Bellevue.
Need more motivation to clean out your closet? Check out five reasons why decluttering and donating will get your 2018 off to the right start:
Less stuff = more time!
Say goodbye to spending hours sifting through your closet. Imagine all your options hung up neatly and clearly visible. By paring down your wardrobe, you’ll spend less time trying to find outfits and more time wearing the things you love.
Make room for the things that matter.
Clearing out the old means making room for newer and better things to come into your life. Less clothes also means the opportunity to redecorate, reorganize and make the most of your closet space.
Declutter to de-stress!
Simplifying your environment by clearing out unused or unwanted items can improve concentration, help you sleep and elevate your mood. Letting go is a natural, healthy process in our growth that makes room for better things.
Going through your closet allows you to rediscover old pieces and reintroduce them to your wardrobe – you get the rush of a great shopping find without the cost! Plus, re-familiarizing yourself with your clothes will stop you from spending money on things you already own.
Save the planet.
Donating your clothes benefits your community AND the environment. Donating and shopping secondhand means that clothes have a longer lifespan and don’t require as many resources as producing new clothes. Plus, Thrift Culture participates in textile recycling so anything that isn’t sold doesn’t end up in landfills.
Giving back isn’t just good for your community – it’s good for you too! Give yourself – and your old items – a new start this year. Declutter and donate to Thrift Culture on the third floor of Bellevue Square, or give us a call to get assistance with larger donations.
