Spring is right around the corner in the northern hemisphere. Many of the people that reside there have begun the annual spring cleaning. Why not take some time to go through your underwear drawer as well?
I can’t be the only one who has tons of pairs that he hardly ever wears. So a couple weekends ago I took a couple hours and went through my collection. Don’t be intimidated, If you don’t have over a hundred pairs like I do it shouldn’t take long. Instead of organizing my pairs by type. I began to organize them in some different categories: Those I loved, those I liked, those I didn’t like, ones to throw away and those I never wore. I soon decided that was far too many different piles, and narrowed down to just three: Loved, Liked, and Loathed.
As I looked at each pair, I took a moment to think of how much I actually liked it, and how often I wore it. Was it really worth it to keep a pair around if I never wore it? Things can change from year to year. Perhaps you’ve decided that a certain cut or style isn’t right for you. Or that mesh really isn’t your thing. Or that you actually prefer bright colors, or drab ones instead. Now is a good time to make a change. I really thought hard on which pairs I actually liked, and which pairs I tolerated. I made notes on which daily wear pairs I really liked so I can start looking for similar pairs. Eventually, you’ll be left with a pile of remainders. But what to do about them?
Well, you can do a couple things.
First off, if they have holes where they aren’t suppose dot, or stains, the trash is the best option. Yes, it may be hard to throw away something so expensive, but come on. It also gives you the chance to buy a new replacement pair if you really liked that pair.
If they are good condition, you have a couple of options. First off, you can sell a pair on a place like eBay, but you might not get too many buyers. You can also trade pairs with other underwear enthusiasts. Lastly, if you know a guy on twitter who is looking to get into a style or brand that you are looking to get rid off. It doesn’t cost much to ship a pair to them and give your old pair a new home. While you are looking at your collection, be sure to try on every pair that you haven’t worn in awhile. Maybe your mind has changed about the pair since you’ve last worn it. I know that has happened to me a few times.
I ended up going through all my pairs and probably tried on at least fifty pairs that I hadn’t worn in forever. I came away with about a dozen pairs I knew I wanted to get rid of, and at least five to ten more that were borderline. I hope this inspires you to take a look through your collection and get some spring cleaning done yourself!
