One of the major sources of clutter is having too many clothes and not enough storage space. But before you start throwing away your old clothes to make room for a new spring wardrobe maybe you could consider giving them away. 80% of all the clothes we buy end up in landfills, and most of those articles of clothing are still in great condition. Stores like DI or Savers will accept used clothing donations, and if you download the new app ‘Give it’, you can even get someone to come to your house and pick up your used clothes for free! http://www.giveithub.com/
