Hi, my name is Pete D'Alessandro this is Expert Village. I've gotten to a point where you are cleaning your closet, we reloaded everything we liked and loved and what we need. But we really don't have a place to go with all this other stuff. Now there is nothing wrong with a lot of it, it's fine but maybe it doesn't fit and we just don't feel fond about it anymore. But what can we do? Well option one would be yard sell. There is a lot of great things you can get rid of in yard sales but clothes don't send to, it just don't have a lot of value like that. There's only a few people that want to buy that sort of thing so the amount of time you are going to spend and trying to sell it not really going to be worth a return you get. Another thing you can do is donate this stuff to charity, bag it up and send it out to whatever your local charity is clothes drive, just like a food drive or a local store. Anything you can do like this you are helping someone else out, you are getting rid of something you really don't need anymore. Even though you are still emotionally attached to it, let someone else enjoy it. Emotional attachment can be part of someone else's. Just grab that, take it away, get it out of your own space, your home and do something nice for someone else. This is a really great way to help the community. Proceeds go to the community it's just a great noble thing you can do to get rid of stuff that you really don't have use for anymore.
