Five things you need to remove from your closet

Trends come and go! Sometimes all those items that you have bought over the years tend to stay in your closet. Those clothes are probably shoved into a box and kept in the back of your closet. 

That box of clothes is only getting bigger and bigger through the passing months and years. Instead of letting those old clothes overtake your closet, donate them! 

There are clothing donation Omaha locations where you can drop-off unused clothing. Or there are even donation pick-ups that you have scheduled to come to your home. There is no excuse not to donate!

If you are decluttering your closet, here is how to sort clothes to give away

Jeans that no longer fit

From bootleg, straight leg to skinny, the average person can accumulate many pairs of jeans. A poll conducted by ShopSmart found that the average American woman owns seven pairs of jeans. On the other hand, the average American man owns, on average, six pairs of jeans. All those jeans can accumulate in your closet as the years pass. If you have some pair of jeans that longer fit you, it is time to donate them. 

Heels that you cannot walk in 

We have all been there when you buy a pair of heels that were love at first sight. The joy of finding them might have made you oversee that the shoes were not comfortable. Instead of the heels taking up room in your closet, donate them to a thrift store. There is someone out there who will love them just as much as you do and even wear them.

Handbags that do not match your wardrobe 

Is there such a thing as too many handbags? Perhaps, it is true when you no longer have room to store new handbags. Instead of leaving those bags on the floor or somewhere they might get damaged, pick out the ones that no longer fit your style. You might have only bought that handbag to match an outfit you no longer wear. Either way parting with some bags gives you room for new ones. 

Special occasion clothes that you have already worn 

One way on how to sort clothes to give away is to start with outfits for special occasions. Whether it is a wedding, New Year's Eve party or graduation, we tend to buy that outfit just for one event. It is common that we decide not to wear that piece of clothing again. Take those articles of clothing that you know you are longer going to wear and donate them. 

Out of season clothing 

The change in weather indicates what you will wear for the next upcoming months. Whether winter or fall is approaching, switching out a wardrobe can save you valuable time. Instead of packing up all your summer clothes for the winter, toss a few items. Pick out the pieces of clothing that you know you will no longer wear and donate them. This will save lots of room in your storage and help recycle those old clothes
