When we go on vacation, my family puts the dirty clothes for the day in one pile. I put it in garbage bag (or Walmart plastic bags) and take home in one suitcase. Clothes we don't wear go in another suitcase. Then when we go home, the plastic bag(s) full of dirty clothes get quickly unpacked and thrown down the steps to the basement. Easy unpacking, and clean clothes a lot faster!

Whenever I've been out and about and have spent money I always wind up with a pocket full of change. Every night when I get home I put all that change into my alabaster box (the money goes towards building new churches.) I'm helping someone while keeping myself from having change all over and feeling like a wonderful person!
You can do this with any organization you want or a vacation or clothing fund.
AS YOU LOSE THE WEIGHT AND YOUR CLOTHES GET BIGGER
Throw away your fat clothes (actually give them to charity and if you have the energy put them in your garage sale) Go to thrift stores and consignment shops to buy yourself clothes in your new size. I have found some great bargains, a few never worn clothes, and saved lots of dollars for a celebration party or vacation when I meet my goal. I would rather spend money on a great vacation then put it into an outfit I may only wear once or twice. 236

have to THINK just WASH ! Also, as he outgrows his clothes and we give them to a charity, the NEXT time someone goes to use the clothes,the "age" it fits will make it EASIER for others to sort through and to choose clothes for youngsters!
