I hadn’t thought of myself as someone too sentimental when it comes to hoarding onto things from years gone by. When I look at all the clothes in the wardrobe, yes I did have some coats dating back to the early 1990’s (which I eventually sold on Trade Me), but they were really the only clothes that I hadn’t worn for years. In my mind I always thought it was worth holding onto coats, as they don’t generally date in style and are an expensive purchase.
Everything else comes out of the wardrobe and does get worn. There are some things that I have bought specifically to display in my room, or on my mannequin, but nothing that I am saving for a rainy day or am hoping can squeeze into.
This makes me definitely a Seller not a Hoarder. If I can make money by selling my clothes/shoes to someone else, and use that money to reinvest in other purchases – then I am a very happy shopper. My most recent example of this is selling two pair of G-star jeans this month for NZ $267.00 and buying a new pair for $170.00 from Route 66 in Newmarket. This left me $97.00 dollars in credit. What to spend that money on?
