Time to Give Away Clothes? Update!

Monday, September 16, 2013

Well, I did it. I went through my closet over the weekend and started sorting out the clothes that don't fit anymore. Once I got started, I just kept going. I was ruthless. Things I don't wear, don't like, not sure why I bought in the first place -- in the pile. Shoes that don't fit or are uncomfortable -- in the pile. Only worn once dresses from weddings and Christmas parties -- in the pile. Ratty PJs and old stained shirts -- in the pile.

By the time I was done, I had this in the middle of my living room (only I promise it wasn't sideways):



I am donating the things worth donating and the rest have gone in the trash.

I'm amazed at how much space I have in my closet. I'm also pretty disgusted with myself for having so much in the first place. No one needs this many clothes. I've decided I need to do better with that and not buy just for the sake of buying.

    Ahhh...isn't that just the best feeling? And more room for new, smaller clothes down the road!

    Some sorts of purging can feel so good! And your right about having way more in our closets then we really need. Which reminds me, I need some new black flats to go with my 2 black dress boots and black high heels, and black mid heels! Looks like I also need a pair of casual black boots too. Did I mention I love to shop - LOL!

    I just gave away another pile of things that are too big these days. I don't have lots of space so I decided awhile ago that whenever I buy something new I will get rid of something old. That has worked pretty well. Great success to you.

    LOL what timing, I need some inspiration. Today I have ALL my clothes out of my closet and on a wheeled clothes rod (like in a store) so I can 'shop my clothes'. I got rid of my too big clothes in the last few weeks, now I need to sort through what is left.

    emoticon there are people who will appreciate your donation.
