I’m pretty sure you must have at least one whole cupboard of old clothes in your basement that don’t fit you anymore or it’s just old or you used it too many times.Give them away to the homeless, poor or to the nearest NGO. This will make space at your house & make others who got the clothes happy, cuz whats old for you is new for them.
