Tasks for the day: Clear your wardrobe, think like Lady Gaga

As Make do Kate rightly points out, the Easter weekend is the perfect time for a good cleansing wardrobe clearout. And instead of just thowing the unwanted clothes away, you could use them to do good. TK Maxx have joined forces with Cancer Research UK for a campaign called Give Up Clothes For Good. You can take in bags of your unwanted clothes and homewares to your local TK Maxx store now - each bag donated could be worth up to £30! You can even get involved online by donating your status to charity at the dedicated Facebook app http://apps.facebook.com/tkmaxxgiveupclothes. This is running from now all the way through to 25th April, so if you don't have time for a clear out this weekend, there's plenty of time to start the spring cleaning.

As part of the campaign they have created a video with a "Lady Gaga" who donates her costumes, including the one she's wearing: and we all know how much I love Gaga! (I'm like an embarrassing teenage fan-girl!) I found this video hilarious, and thought I would share it with you to liven up a gloomy Easter Sunday! Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to bump into Gaga whilst having a good scrummage in the bargain bin (or is that just me?!)

Happy Easter everyone, have a chocolate egg and a hot crossed bun for me!

Love, Tor xx

Its a great idea and for a great cause - so much better to donate than sell unwanted clothes on ebay x Happy Easter - I have eaten a lot of choco eggs on your behalf today x

Hilarious. I wonder if they got Gaga's permission?

I heart her!

Ah thank you for the mention. I did it - gosh I feel like I need a new wardrobe though or maybe the LACK of sunshine and warmth is doing my head in!
