2. Alternates to discarding: If while going through your closet you find items you don't think you'll get use out of, try selling used items on apps like Poshmark, or Mercari. There is also donation...we would, of course, recommend donating your gently used items to a WINGS resale store. These options are a bit more specialized and give life back to pieces you may have thought of as rubbish.
