Get Rid of Your Old Clothes This January!

If you are in a position to get some new clothes in January 2021 or have a lot of old clothes in the closet or kids’ closets that you know no one in the house is going to wear anymore, then now is the time to help others in need and give the clothes away to your local charities and thrift stores.

Running a boutique of used clothing is hard when no one donates clothing, and with social distancing rampant in urban populations around the world right now I bet a lot of struggling thrift stores are getting way less inventory.

Also, random objects in your home can be donated, so people in houses without those objects can easily afford them. I remember when I found a blender in a thrift store for $15 and I was so happy because I needed one really badly. It was an older blender that would have sold for maybe $60 brand new but I was able to use it in my apartment and saved a lot of money at the time when I needed to.

So think about it. After all, you have to let go of the old to let the new come in, and I find that every time I give a lot of stuff away blessings come into my life.

Shopping for Used Clothes in Thrift Stores

Depending on where you live in the world, stores may be opening back up as usual after the Covid lockdown. That means shopping is back! Especially shopping for pleasure. Do you know what can be the most pleasurable form of shopping? Believe it or not, but searching through local thrift stores is a past time of many collectors.

What can you shop for in thrift stores? You can shop for cool decorative art pieces, used books, but most interestingly, clothes! If you either want to save money or find cool old clothes that you can’t find elsewhere, thrift stores can be the best boutiques.

If you know us, you’ll know enough about us that we love the idea of combining hotels with boutiques, to give tourists a better experience when visiting. But, I wonder if anyone’s thought of combining a hotel with a thrift store. Most people think of thrift stores as places where poor people might go. But that’s because they’ve never been there. Sure, people who need to save money might be forced to buy used items, but in my local thrift stores I mostly see collectors browsing. If you collect anything, a thrift store might have it, and that’s why I think a hotel for collectors with a thrift store full of rarities might be a great place for collectors to visit around the world.

But what about clothes? Sure, some of the used clothes found in thrift stores might have holes or stains. But that’s why you take your time shopping. Always wash the clothes at home before wearing them, and be careful to search them for wear and tear before buying them. Those are some tips. Now, if you’re excited to get back out there to support local business and want some new clothes, check out your nearest thrift store and see what you can find.
