We've been meaning to go through our closet lately, since every drawer seems to have a six-inch high padding of "maybe I'll wear it" clothes that never sees the outside world. So good thing Banana Republic's giving us a reason to get going. Who: Banana Republic and Goodwill What: Their second annual sweater and coat drive - Bring your gently worn sweaters and coats to any Banana Republic store (US and Canada only), from October 16th to October 26th, and get a 30% discount at the store in exchange. Why: Because not only could you use a cute sweater dress on sale, but all donated goods will end up at Goodwill locations around the country, and the revenue from your old stuff will fund job training and employment programs for people who could really use it. Last year's drive generated almost a half-million dollars - and wouldn't it be so easy to talk your boyfriend out of ugly sweater choices with facts like that?
