That is a really thoughtful and helpful article! I just bought the first new clothes I’ve had in about 3 years and over half of them were second-hand. It felt good to buy some new things, but even better that I’d let my old things wear out. I even did a closet purge as you suggested. I’m glad I’m not the only person out there who thinks like this!
