It’s the last day of this week’s 5 things a day for 5 days! After today you will have purged 25 items from your closet. Today let’s go through formal wear and jackets. There probably aren’t 27 bridesmaids dresses lingering at the back of your closet, but maybe you have a few that are time to clear out. Are there any jackets that you can donate? It’s almost time for cold weather and there are a lot of needy families out there that would be so appreciative.
Check out how to recycle your old bridesmaids dresses in the gallery after the jump below!
