With the season about to turn from winter to spring, and our kids growing up relentlessly, it’s out with the old and in with the new for their wardrobes. But before ditching unwanted dresses, trousers and tops, it’s best to not only think of the bin.
It can seem only too easy to throw it all into a black bin liner so the unwanted garments end up in the tip, but don’t forget how much those clothes cost you in the first place, and how most items are still perfectly good to wear. Hundreds of pounds’ worth of good clothes can be binned.
Before throwing away unwanted and out-grown clothes take them out the wardrobe and place them on the bed. Take a look and consider:
- Are they the right size?
- Are they actually in a bad condition?
- Are they versatile?
- Could someone else still enjoy these?
In the event that some clothes still fit or are ‘basics’ that your kid will be able to wear no matter their taste, then you may be best served by retaining them. If clothes are tatty or painfully out of date, the binbag might be the best place for them. But when clothes are still in great condition and will be appreciated by other people, you could make some money from them.
It’s always possible to recycle clothes, but at a time when we could do with a little help recycling clothes for cash may well be the more sensible option – especially as your children will need new clothes!
