How I did it: Deciding which clothes I would no longer need was the trickiest part. I had a few that I didn't wear, but that I was keeping just in case I might want to wear them some day. They have now gone to a better home.
The clothes were put into a bag, taken to the charity shop and handed over to the volunteer there.
She said "thank you" and I went away with a slightly happier feeling, and a less cluttered wardrobe. Read how I did it… 17 hours ago
I am trying to become more minimalist with my clothes. I am giving away everything but
- 4 pairs of dress pants (for work)
- 3 work shirts
- 2 pairs of well fitting jeans
- 4 long sleeve shirts
- 4 short sleeve shirts
- 2 sweatshirts
- 2 sweaters
- 3 dresses

I tend to acquire more clothing than I need, so a couple times a year I purge my clothing and donate it to Goodwill. They can sell the clothing and give people jobs ans education doing so. They are an excellent charity. 7 months ago
How I did it: Bin bags at the ready, a steely resolve, and a disinclination to ever again rifle through drawers full of clothes I never wear - these were my tools. Never again would the extra smalls and size 6's mock me; and, anyway, why was I hanging onto clothes that would barely fit around my thighs never mind my waist? Eyebrows furrowed, I purged those skinny bitches from my wardrobe forever. Likewise, too, the array of clothes fashioned after the 6-man tent.
Ye gods, do I actually own anything that fits me? Read how I did it… 12 months ago
