For M2W Elite Team: Organization Blog....donating clothing too big for me!

Organization Blog....donating clothing too big for me!

If you get a chance to donate clothing it is a great feeling! My husband is a veteran so I chose a Veterans Charity. They even come and pick the items up!!

I have sorted kids clothes and lots of my clothes. Several bags of clothes.
They will get 6 bags like this! 2 of those were kids items the rest was mine (with a few of hubby's ugly stuff I stole, lol)

Here is part of the pile I am donating

One side of my almost empty closet

If your clothes are too big donate them. Don't be scared you will gain weight and need them again. We don't want to ever wear those again! Right?

    Good plan to be optimistic in your spring cleaning
I didn't know the supermarket bins sell the clothes, it is still convenient for me because I put clean rags in there as well, wouldn't expect anyone to wear them but they are useful to some industries.

    I donate to the Salvation Army and get a receipt for my accountant. I heard those clothing bins you see in supermarket parking lots SELL those clothes to third world countries. That reeks, imo! Everyone should takes a few minutes to research whatever charities they choose and make sure most of the donations actually go to the needy and not the organization's salaries and other costs.

You had me laughing with "hubby's ugly stuff"! My mother always did that, too! emoticon

    I feel like if you keep the old, big clothes because you are scared you will need them again... then chances are you will eventually need them again. It's empowering to throw them out, isn't it? GOOD FOR YOU! I share your views. (but I will keep one of my "big pants" so I can be like Jared lol)

    I just did the same thing...not so much with my clothes, but with the kid's clothes. I try to clean out their drawers when the weather begins to change so we can find out what fits and what doesn't!

You look amazing! I'm sure you have gone through many sizes with your weight loss!! I wish you continued success!

    My local Goodwill loves me for the same reason. :) For sure...keeping them around is just an invitation to gain the weight back!
