Re: Too Many Clothes...

My main closet is full so whenever I buy something new I remove an old piece and get rid of it. There's never an overflow and I try to keep on top of it so it doesn't get that way. Same goes for clothing in my drawers. New comes in...old goes out.Woman Happy

Re: Too Many Clothes...

Thank you, thank you, thank you !!! I needed someone to come up with a plan for me to get rid of clothes I'm not wearing. I have 3 closets with nothing but my clothes in them and I still look at fashion shows to find the perfect outfit I need to wear to an upcoming event.  I have tops, pants and dresses hanging in  the closets that I've had for several years and never worn. I'm planning on downsizing so this is good. I am going to use your catagories, goodwill here I come !

Please consider other outlets besides Goodwill.  They are really not a charitable organization and there are so many others out there.

Re: Too Many Clothes...

OMG I went through the same thing.  I have small closets and I had so much stuff cramed into them, as well as stuff on the floor and then I have a huge storage room in my basement which is packed.  I got to the point where I said enough is enough, I can't live like this.  I could never find anything it was such a mess.  Everything I have fits, beautiful clothing and shoes, bags, scarfs, etc.  but I don't get to wear so much of it so I finally got a ton of large garbage bags and went through most of it (still have more to go) and even though I really liked an item and it fit and looked good on me if I have not worn in for a few years and probably never will, in the bag it went.  I wound up with 20 bags stuffed full and donated it to the Vietnam War Veteran charity (they pick up).  I feel like I can breathe again and it feels wonderful. Now I have to go through my shoes (no kidding I must have 100 pairs if not more) and love them all.  This is going to be painful!  Also got rid of so many handbags as I usually just use 1 or 2.  This was a very carthadic exercise for me.

Me too, and I'm loving it. Beats having nothing as a young working girl.

I use Vietnam Vets of America....they come to your house for pickup and leave a tax receipt,  I don't even have to leave my home, just schedule a pickup date.

@phoenixbrd  My SS class works with the AGAPEs providing for expectant mothers, homeless and orphans.  I give to them and I give DH to Salvation Army.  We used to give to our gardener but he died.  We have a commercial service now which, like my housekeeper, overcharges for very little work.
