As you are switching out your closets for the season, make sure to pull out items you did not wear or will not wear again and prepare for donation or consignment. No need to store it if you will not wear it again! The Dove’s Nest and Dress For Success are wonderful organizations for women’s clothing donations. Jacob’s Ladder is a great place to donate men’s clothes.
