Secrets of Success

Let Go Of Those Clothes You Never Wear!



Move most of your clothes (try it first with tops) to a closet in another room. When you need something to wear, grab it from the other closet. Once it has been worn, it can be washed and put back in your original closet. Anything left in the spare closet after 3 months, donate!

More Information:

You can do this a few times a year with the different seasons. You can do it with pants too though I know most of us have more of a surplus in the tops department. If you haven't worn a certain tank top all summer long, are you really going to miss it when it's finally gone?

  • My family and I moved to a new place, and it was hard, but I donated all my "skinny" clothes and pre-pregnancy clothes. That way I wouldn't feel bad about being larger. I kept very few things, like a dress my dad gave me. But, it felt liberating to get rid of so much stuff. - by MARIAJESTRADA
  • I've been meaning to clean out my closet for weeks, but couldn't face the onerous task of trying on everything to see what fits and what needs to be thrown out. I love this idea! - by BIRD_GIRL
  • I was thinking about doing this. So now I am going to! - by TISAGIFT
  • I started doing this today, and am donating my non-used clothes to goodwill. - by LINDIEINRED
