As the weather begins to get frosty, tank tops, shorts, and sandals move over to make way for fleece and boots. Many college students do not have much space in their closets (because they are tiny or shared) to have multiple seasons. It sounds crazy, but it is true. If you find yourself in this wardrobe situation here are a few tips to help.
1. Take It Home
Thanksgiving is coming up and thus a trip home is in order. This is also a great excuse to pack up your closet and switch out seasons with your clothes back home. This way, you still have them when school gets out and will not have to buy a whole new season of clothes.
2. Donate, Donate, Donate
This could be a good option because you are helping others. If you choose this option stay with local shelters either here or in your home town. Anywhere but Goodwill (they aren’t as good as they say).
3. Plato’s Closet That
Yes, I know, there is some controversy about this store between many students because they “never buy my new clothes with the original store tags on them,” but if you have gone through your clothes and have found items not worth keeping it is always worth a try to sell them here. They pay cash for clothes. Cash is cash and poor college students love it.
4. Online Sale Sites
There are many groups on Facebook within ISU, but if you are looking to get some money out of your clothing items Free and For Sale is definitely the place to go. Simply post pictures of your items along with price, wait for someone to comment, then meet that someone on campus in order to get the money for your items.
