Spring is just about here and that means that I need new clothes. OK well maybe I don’t “need” new clothes but I definitely want new clothes. There are several things in my closet that need to be replaced. Several pairs of pants are too big since I have dropped a few pounds. A few pairs of shoes are just not comfortable enough for me to wear again. Let’s not even talk about the HUGE stack of t-shirts that I never wear.

Clean Out Your Old Clothes
Just because the clothes are not ones that I want any longer, doesn’t mean that they cannot be used by someone else. Here’s a great excuse for spring cleaning: Your donation of used clothing or household goods to Goodwill helps create jobs directly in your community. I plan on donating the clothes I no longer want. You can find out the impact of your donation when you clean out your old clothes and other items by using Goodwill’s Impact Calculator.
Your donations support people who are seeking to earn jobs and build careers. To see how the process works, just watch the “How We Do It” PSA.
Now, I know, cleaning out your closet is probably not high on your list of things to do BUT once the closet is clean, you can feel great about buying a few more cute things to put into your closet. To make this whole process a little bit more fun, you can find out what your closet personality is. Just take this fun quiz to identify the type of closet you have and what you could donate.
If you’re anything like me, there are quite a few things in your closets that you no longer want or need. Take some time and declutter and donate them to help others. Then go shopping!
