Chosen by The Cheap Chick
One In, One Out
I have a clothes shopping rule that has served me and my over-stuffed closets well. Every time I bring a new item into my closet, I have to donate something from my closet (or consign it, if I think the item will sell). One item in, one item out. That way, I never have to buy new hangers! Well, okay, that’s not the real reason. That way, I alway know what is lurking in the depths of my closets, and stuff isn’t just being shoved to the back to make way for the new. If I’m not wearing something, someone else could.
So wear do I donate? It depends on time, volume, and whether or not I need a coupon. Typically, I’m pressed for time, so I drop my donations off at the Goodwill in Roseville, which I pass my way to work. If I want a coupon for my next thrift store shopping spree, I donate to Savers. Also, if I have a ton of stuff to donate, I’ll typically go to Savers – either in Columbia Heights or Bloomington.
And if I want to consign, and I have the time, I hit up Nu Look Consignment in Minneapolis (call to see if you need an appointment first). If I’m consigning on the fly, it’s either Clothes Mentor or Turn Style in Roseville.
