Stop Piling Up That Old Junk, Here’s Why You Need To Get Rid Of It ASAP

You might love that pile of old clothes sitting either in the corner of your bed or stashed inside that over-flowing wardrobe. Maybe it makes you feel like you’re back home. But, basically you just love those old clothes (even if you’ve outgrown them), because they are YOURS and they are so super-comfortable. BUT, guess what? They are just a pile of dormant JUNK. Their wardrobe-life is over, and here’s why you really need to get them out of your place ASAP.

1. They Are Just Simply Utilizing Too Much Space In Your Closet

Duh! If you clean up that space, you could use it for stashing some new clothes or a couple of books at least. If that’s not a reason enough, at least you can be kind enough to make space for your partner’s clothes.

2. You Need To Let Go Of Old Things, And Not Be An Emotional Mess

C’mon, if you are going to attach sentiments to a pair of blue jeans or that old Metallica tee, it’s only going to become a bathroom rug someday. You are always going to have a few favourite clothes at every phase of your life, but then learn to pass it on to your nephew or a kid-in-need. They might really appreciate it, if indeed it’s a classic collection.

3.  Living In A Pile Makes You Extra Lazy

Well, you may think it feels all homely and cool, but the truth is, you are just making your environment more uncomfortable. And eventually, it will make you feel lazier. A smart man needs to keep his wardrobe spic and span.

4. It Doesn’t Add Any Practical Value To Your Wardrobe Anymore

Especially if your sense of style and dressing sense has changed over the years, you don’t need to hold on to that old pile. For instance, if you are in a business-attire phase now, where your old funky college wardrobe doesn’t hold weight anymore, you really need to dispose off them.

5. Move On To The Latest Fashion, Instead Of Sticking To That Old Garb

If you are wearing bell-bottoms in this era of mankles, it definitely isn’t considered cool (unless you are walking the ramp or something). So, rather than wondering if these clothes will ever make a comeback in fashion, just give them away. At the very least, it’ll help someone who actually needs to stay warm during this winter.

6. There Are Other People Out There Who Might Need It

Like we said, the same set of clothes which might not be of any value to you anymore may be incredibly helpful for people who are less fortunate. Especially, during these chilly winters, your pile of clothes might just be a blessing for them.

7.  You Can Get New Clothes On Myntra By Getting Points In Exchange For Old Clothes
