Clothing To Keep

This Sparked Me!

Only keep the clothes that look good on you. Once you start losing, things fit different. If it doesn't look good, toss it or donate it. Looking good motivates you to keep going. You WANT to be seen! emoticon

    Clothes that fit make all the difference. Depending on what I wear, depends on whether people notice and I've lost 45 lbs. The loose overblouses have got to go. I have more of a waist now so want to show it off. My larger clothes are going to my church rummage sale.

    That's right! There's nothing like a mood lift when you see how one size smaller fits you better! And the donation of clothes adds a sparkle to your halo.

    I did this very recently and it is so much easier finding things to wear that I LIKE to wear. I have also gone on a Apparel Diet - I am not buying any clothing for a year - I am going to figure out a new way to work my wardrobe and by the time I will be buying new clothes again I will be buying a smaller size. this will also help me reach a financial goal I have set for myself as well. emoticon

    I do this regularly. At my local charity resale shop I drop off the old clothes..get your reciept for your tax deduction...then go in the store and buy some "new" ones.....repeat till you are happy. On my last trip I got 3 skirts, a blazer and 2 tops for $34, a tax reciept for $21..can't even do that at Wal-Mart!

    This is a great idea, why keep something that does not look good on us?
I also agree that looking good keeps us going.
Now it is time that clean my closet! lol
