2020 is here! We made it through another year. We made it through another decade, in fact.
The New Year brings time to reflect on the past and make plans for the future. One popular tradition is that of the New Year’s Resolution. People often make broad resolutions. They resolve to lose weight, to quit smoking, to earn more money, or even to take a big vacation in some exotic location. Other people hope to make improvements at home. They may say this is the year the addition to the house gets or done. Some want to change who they are with a new attitude or a new wardrobe.
If you find yourself in home cleaning mode for New Year’s, you are not alone. Many people across Florida are cleaning out their closets, getting rid of the old and making way for the new. If you combine that resolution with building a new 2020 wardrobe, you should be careful, though.
Getting rid of old clothes just because they don’t fit how they used to or because they are missing buttons does not make a lot of sense financially. You do not have to replace a lot of the clothes that might otherwise head into the donate pile. Instead, you could can take your favorite pieces to a tailor or dry cleaner. A dry cleaner can hem pants. They also hem jackets. They can do taper waist alterations as well offer embroidery services.
Although few would admit it, there are even people who toss out old clothes in the trash just because they are dirty and require a trip to the cleaners. There is no reason to toss a wool sweater or a silk blouse because it has stains. The dry cleaner can help you, too!
By repairing your current wardrobe, you can usher in the new year in style by spending less than you would to replace those same clothes. Even if the fit of some piece is out of style, a dry cleaner that does dress alterations could easily change the shape of that garment.
How do you find a dry cleaner? If you have access to the internet, it should not be hard. Just type “best dry cleaning near me” into your favorite search engine. The internet does its thing, and like that, you have a list of local dry cleaners – complete with reviews. Read the reviews carefully, though! A place with many good reviews is your best bet. Avoid a dry cleaner with a lot of negative reviews.
This year, imagine the new you in a like-new wardrobe. Don’t throw out anything if it can be repaired, cleaned, and used again. Save time, money, and energy with a trip to the dry cleaner.
