So as you may well know Autumn is my favourite season and when September rolls around it's like my January. New Years Resolutions? Good but secondary to Autumn resolutions, for sure. Spring clean? Make that a September clean and I can get on board. You see, I may be a little bit of a freak but Autumn signifies a fresh start for me and so every September I start to trawl through my possessions looking for things I can give away, sell and really purge to make room for big cosy knits and lots of opaque tights.
Often I find lots of clothes that not of good enough quality to be able to sell on or give to charity and this is where I look for other options. I'll bag up the summer clothes that I bought on a whim and will never ever wear again or old clothes for dossing around the house and I'll get them out of my hair which, to me, is insanely cathartic.
This season I've sold, given away or recycled three black bags of clothes between four people which is pretty good (or bad) going but in the spirit of cleansing and feeling even slightly renewed, I'm not even slightly ashamed.
