Donate or sell, what to do with the clothes you no longer wear?

Donate or sell, what to do with the clothes you no longer wear?

Whether you have already done it or not, changing your wardrobe is something almost inevitable to make room for the new season's clothes. In the process, you may discover clothes that have been forgotten for months and that you want to discard to make way for new ones.

In these cases there are two options, donate and sell, but they are not exclusive and you can opt for a hybrid system if you consider that there are clothes for which you think you can get a good economic return and the money is not bad for you.

In recent years, web pages have been created with which to sell these products, such as Wallapop or Vinted. However, these methods require the seller to spend time taking photos of the garments, talking and negotiating with buyers, and shipping.

Not to mention that until you sell the clothes, you won't free up space in your house.

There is an alternative to this. In a reality in which second-hand physical stores proliferate, it is not surprising that they also become popular on the Internet and there are already several that stand out, such as Percentil or Micolet. What differentiates them from the previous platforms is that you can send all the clothes you want to get rid of and they are the ones who do the rest of the work.

It is a hybrid system between donating and selling because it is not often that they accept all the garments that you send. Each website has different requirements, but generally the garments must be in good condition, with all the internal labels and must be from recent seasons.

With these clauses, a lot of clothes are discarded and you can choose between donating them to the NGO with which the web pages collaborate, recycling them or having the clothes sent back to you with a shipping cost.

The collection of the package is free and, although each system is different, you will generally receive the money corresponding to your garments as they are sold, but you will be able to free up space from minute one of the process.
