Today has been clearing out day for me.
Every so often I have a big spring clean and go through my clothes and decide that if I haven’t worn an item in 6 months it gets put in a bag with a bunch of other stuff and gets taken to our local charity shop for them to sell.
People who know me know of my ambition to do some work with the Red Cross in areas that have been affected by famine, natural disaster and war, but the saying goes “charity begins at home” and so I take my donations to the local charity shops. I have a couple of charity organisations that I always donate to, ones that are close to my heart and mean something to me.
Tonight I managed to fill a huge black bin liner of clothes, scarves and accessories…the clothes were a mixture of every day shirts that cost just a few pounds to items that cost me a little bit more to some that were pure indulgence treats. I have in the past, and even tonight I think, even put clothes in the bag with tags still on them. That might make me sound like a bit of a spoilt brat that I have clothes that I haven’t even worn but that’s definitely not the case…I buy clothes a lot of the time without trying them on in the store. I hate it, it’s such a hassle for me and so I buy things my size and when I get home they’ve maybe not fitted properly or just not looked right and I haven’t got the receipt when it came to taking it back or I’ve left it too late to take it back and I’m stuck with it. So, to me the best thing is for me to donate them and for them to get the most out of them.
|Just a few clothes...(this is not my picture just an example of what I looked like earlier haha)|
I do feel better once my wardrobe and drawers have been cleared out, it makes me feel like my room is less cluttered and is almost a de-stressing mechanism. So tomorrow is the day to drop off the bag…I always wonder if I’m going to see someone in the street walking past me wearing my clothes haha.
As I like to leave a music video on here at the end of my blog, I'm leaving one of a song I really like...I didn't like it to start with but now I've listened to the words and listening to the music properly, I love it.
