#1 - CLEAR YOUR MIND OF THE NEGATIVE STIGMAS, YOU CAN GIVE SECOND-HAND A SECOND LIFE.
First and foremost please keep in mind that people don’t usually donate items that are completely damaged or totally trashed. Some do but most don’t. In fact, it turns out that a lot of donations are either gently used, still new, or even overstock clothing from wholesalers. Most resellers legally have to wash all the donated clothing they receive before they put it out for sale, so relax it’s not going to kill you. Nevertheless we suggest you go ahead and wash it once you get it home, it’s not really yours until it smells like you anyways. If you remain diligent and hone your thriftiness, we guarantee you’ll find a few pieces that will fill a space in your home for years to come.
