What use are things when we’re not using them? When a quarter of your closet is going out of style, are you going to wear them as much? How long are you going to save them for when they’re not serving their designed purpose?
It’s better at this point to acknowledge the staleness of your clothes, and give them a do-over! It would be more responsible to stretch the potential of what you already have, than to go back into the market for another one.
