Best Ways to Deal With Clothes You No Longer Need

Most of us own more clothes than we actually need, and there comes a time when we finally decide to part our way with the items we no longer wear. The tricky part is figuring out what to do with them afterward, and these are three of your best options.

Get Creative

Instead of throwing your old clothes away, use them to make something new. If the fabric is still in good shape, you can transform it into scrunchies, hair wraps, scarves, and dozens of other tiny items.

Be Generous

If you don’t have enough time for these creative endeavors, donating your clothes is also an option. Before heading to a local thrift store, check if any of your friends or family members like the fashion item you no longer need.


In case your old clothes reached a point of no return, and they’re too damaged to be worn again, recycling is the best idea. Some high-end stores, like H&M, have their own recycling programs and they offer discounts to customers who take part.
