Too Much Stuff
I never liked to have anything in excess, such as stuff packed up, probably to never again see the light of day, while accumulating more stuff. “There must be better use for my under-utilized possessions”, I thought. I also considered that there were persons who would love to have the clothes, shoes, bags, etc. that I had packed away gathering dust.
Nothing to wear
Then, there were often times, even with a packed closet, that I simply couldn’t find an outfit suitable for an upcoming event…what a waste! The thrill of going out to shop was often eclipsed by lack of money or time. So, I would resort to my sisters’ closets. And there I found, not only a wealth of options, but alas a plight similar to mine and to an even greater extent – Closets overflowing with out-dated, out-sized, brand new and barely worn clothes. I longed for a change, less clutter and hoarding. I wanted to adopt a minimalist lifestyle, as least in my wardrobe. I dreamt of ‘Closet-freedom’. And I wanted my loved ones, and as many other women, suffering under the weight of piles of clothes, shoes and handbags, to experience this freedom too.
Buying second-hand clothing caught me by surprise while I was studying in the UK. I honestly didn’t know that’s what ‘thrift’ meant! *covers face* #dontjudgeme. I just thought “these clothes are nice, and so cheap, and they fit!” I still wear those thrifted pieces years later. Upon returning home, there wasn’t such an outlet for thrifting as far as I was aware. This was my perfect opportunity -“why not do it yourself?” Hence, I’ve embarked on a journey to provide a convenient way for persons to give away or sell clothing from their own closets, along with motivation and support throughout the decluttering process.
Simple is always best, in my book. Therefore, I aspire to have a simple rotating closet of a few loved, versatile, quality pieces for every occasion based on my lifestyle. Will you join me in this venture? If something has done it’s time in your closet, but is still in great shape, it may a wonderful new addition to someone else’s wardrobe. And even if it’s a bit tattered or out-dated, that item of clothing or accessory can be repaired, re-designed or re-purposed. You just need a bit of imagination and creativity.
Let’s share the love!
