By now I’m sure that the majority of you have heard of the concept of minimalism. (If not, there’s a documentary on Netflix called Minimalism that will give you great insight.)
Put simply, the idea is to minimize our consumption of products that don’t have a place in improving our quality of life. It’s good for the planet and for your wallet.
While some people may take it to the extreme – I will readily admit I doubt I would ever be able to limit my belongings to fitting into a couple duffle bags – I think we can all agree that there’s some clutter in our life that we no longer need to hold on to. And if you’re anything like us, this usually includes a ton of super cute clothes that you’ve likely just gotten your use out of – if you’ve even taken the tags off, whoops.
Which raises the next question – what to do with the things you feel are taking up too much space in your life?
Luckily, we have a list of resources to help you with just that.
Letgo is basically your go-to for getting rid of any miscellaneous items in your life. You can sell anything from cars to phones to children’s toys, appliances, you name it! If you don’t know what to do with it, just letgo of it.
Maybe you have some real quality clothing items that are still in great condition, but might not fit your style any longer or you’d like to replace it with a newer model. If so, Poshmark is the app for you. They also have an awesome feature that lets you join a Posh Party with friends and can create a theme like Girls Night Out. Not to mention you’ll be able to find items from top designers.
Need to part ways with some cool art work? Depop. Revising your music collection? Depop. That sparkly neon top that you never found a reason to wear? Depop. Basically on Depop, the more off-beat the better.
The awesome thing is that these are all apps that will allow you to get started with minimizing your lifestyle with just a few clicks, anywhere & any time.
If you would rather just donate some of your clothes or belongings to organizations that work with those who may not be able to afford your things, we’ve also included some links to locate donation boxes near you as well as companies that may pick up your donations from your home for you.
