I’ve spoken to quite a few people over the years who say they have very nice clothes they love but the don’t wear them anymore.
But my question is this: If you value something so much…then don’t you think you should be wearing it?
The reality is we are a society who likes to accumulate and, dating back to the Great Depression, we tend to keep everything we believe has monetary value when, in reality, it really doesn’t.
For example, a pretty dress or a nice suit you bought ten years ago went for what can be considered a lot of money.
And the problem is you haven’t touched it in nine years because, as most clothes do, it went out of style.
Could it come back in style someday? Maybe. Styles do often return.
But this is not a reason to hold onto things you don’t use…”just in case.”
You feel like, because you spent “good” money on it, you are throwing money away. But ask yourself this… is it putting money in your pocket sitting there in the back of your closet with dust on the shoulders?
Is it giving you anything? Do you benefit at all from keeping...
