Welcome back to #SlimmingSunday, the new weightloss, fitness and healthy lifestyle linky with me, MrsShilts and Michelle from Mummy From The Heart.
My lovely co-host Michelle is still away on her holidays so it’s just me with the linky this week. I didn’t manage to get to weigh in on Tuesday evening as I’ve been poorly over the last week or so. I’m feeling much brighter this weekend though, it’s amazing what a bit of sunshine can do for you!
Donate unwanted clothes with the Slimming World ClothesThrow
I’ve been having a massive de-clutter this week, it’s something that I have wanted to do for ages but haven’t had the chance to get round to it. In hindsight, I’m a bit of a hoarder, keeping things for best, keeping things for just in case and for instances where ‘I’ll slim back into that one day’. However, I have been asked to be a Slimming World member ambassador for their latest charity fundraising campaign and it couldn’t have come at a better time as it’s made me have a sort out.
The Slimming World Clothes Throw is an opportunity for members to celebrate their weightlosses by liberating themselves from all their outgrown clothes and to donate them to charity. In conjunction with Cancer Research UK, Slimming World are asking all their members to pick up a purple donation bag from their local SW group and fill it with unwanted clothes. If you find a gold bag, there’s a chance to win the opportunity to meet Peter Andre for a posh afternoon tea too!
You know all those clothes that you think you’re going to slim back into or the clothes you hang onto just in case, throw them out! Live for today 💛 make more space in your wardrobe for clothes that fit and help out the #swclothesthrow to raise some cash for Cancer Research UK, an amazing charity very close to my heart. It’s very easy to get involved, just pick up a purple pack from your @slimmingworld group and fill your bag with unwanted clothes. If you find a gold one you’re in with a chance of meeting Peter Andre for afternoon tea! Sadly only purple bags here but there’s plenty of time left to find the gold ones.. I’ll be getting my husband to sort his clothes next!
Each bag is worth up to £25 for Cancer Research UK so it’s definitely a good idea to have a good sort out and rid yourself of the past and donate to a good cause. I’ve sorted through both my wardrobes and my drawers to have a good declutter and I’ve bagged up over 5 bags worth and I feel so much better for having a sort out.
What do you do with clothes that you’ve outgrown or slimmed out of? Do you give them to charity or do you pass them on in other ways?
