I have spent all morning working on my closet...First i had to wash everything because i had my cloths hanging in the back room closet and my husband smokes in there and my cloths smelled of smoke,so while putting everything in the front bedroom closet where my husband does not go,i have opened a big can of worms so to speak...I have all kinds of coats,which i do not need,and blouses,jeans ,dresses and skirts ,and winter cloths that i never wear,so i am making a BIG bag full of cloths to donate..I think i will be starting on another bag soon...I have favorite cloths,and the rest why am i keeping them?...Do you ever gather up cloths that you never wear or maybe wear once? I have i bet 30 pair of jeans,and more than that in tops and shoes that is so many i cannot wear,so i am downsizing..I have favorites and i am just going to keep what i like and the rest goes to charity...I mean who needs that many cloths anyway? They all fit but it would take me forever to wear all that...I get sick of clutter..I guess i just keep them in case , but i am going to throw them in a bag transport them to the thrift store and never look back...Are you like that? and do you get all caught up in getting rid of stuff?

Hey there,good to hear from you...Hope you are doing good...Oh i do remember the certificate but no i never recieved it,but our mail is crazy so thats typical of our mail system...It was all messed up for awhile ,but they have it straightened out now,it probably came during that time..Thank you for trying to get it here though,i know your intentions were good...Oh i cleaned out my closet and got rid of a lot of things that i no longer wear,it made for a lot of room in my closet..Yeah,i know what you mean,haha i have a couple of favorites im keeping holding onto "Hoping" haha...Thanks for your reply and so nice hearing from you...

clean out my closet every 6 months, and will pull out anything That I hardly wear or that is damaged or i seem to have several of. Usualy I will just donate the clothes to this charity that runs through my church except for the damaged clothes, I just throw them away.

That is a good idea...There are so many people that i have found that can really use them.Not only does it help them, but i like to give to people and it makes me feel good..I went today and took them to the trift store..It helps the ones also that is in domestic abuse,and in that case they give them free and all others they sell cheap...

Sometimes. All I have are skateboarding clothes that I got years ago. I haven't done any shopping since I graduated high school, lol. So for now I'm stuck with them. I don't really want to be labeled as a poser because I don't skate anymore. But I still follow skateboarding at least.

i could not believe how many cloths i had gathered.I had 20 pair of jeans,plus all the ones that i wear for every day...I filled 3 big bags up and are taking them to the thrift store...They sell them really cheap and also give them away to battered women and it is a good cause..I only kept what i knew i would wear so im done now and i feel much better...

I moved 2 years ago so I did that then. I got rid of tons of stuff. Plus my church has a rummage sale 2 times a year, I will go thru things then and get rid of stuff. Even with all that I still have stuff to get rid of, you only have room for so much stuff. I hang on to some of my favrites too. I have my skinny clothes, my medium clothes and my fat clothes. Someday I want to get back into my skinny clothes, I was getting close and then I quit smoking, now I am in my fat clothes. I am glad I held on to them, maybe thats some of my problem. If I get rid of my fat clothes and gain weight I will not have anything to wear. That might be some incentive to me.

I think we ALL HAve fat & skinny cloths..I have got to the point that i have got rid of my fat cloths and when my skinny cloths get tight i cut down so they will fit...I really try to keep my size the same but its hard to do..I will slide up and down some too..I smoke and i hate when i do ,but if i stop all together i might gain weight...

Yes,I do.But I have no way because my clothes are limited.Although I get tired of them,I didn't get rid of them.
