The weather is going to dip to the chilly level this weekend and there are loads of bargains. Translation: Perfect time to go shopping for those items to stave off the cold. A Ralph Lauren turtleneck with shawl wouldn’t be bad. A fluffy duvet with a King Pheasant duvet cover would be peachy to snuggle under. And, of course, a new Paddington coat would be just perfect.
But, wait! Where to put these new must-haves? Simple answer. Edit that closet. There’s “stuff” in there that hasn’t seen the light of day in seasons.
Face it. They’re old friends that were spectacular in their day. And like an old friend, they shouldn’t be abandoned, nor should they grow old and stale in an old closet.
Aha, you know where this line of thinking is going. Why not put your mind in that gut-wrenching place, go through your closet and have a going-away party for those clothes and blankets that you no longer need. After wiping away the tears, take them to Goodwill, Attitudes and Attire, The Family Place Resale Shop, Genesis Benefit Thrift Store or your fav shelter.
Not only might you be providing warmth for a total stranger, but your “old friend” might just give that person a new lease on life and get them headed in a totally new and better direction.
