I totally just made this up. But I am excited to do it. I have about 50 shirts in total - blouses and more casual things and being the creature of habit I am, I generally wear the same 6-7 shirts. Which annoys me that I am like that. So my goal for the next month or so is to wear each blouse ONCE and of course if I dont like it, its the perfect opportunity to donate it or sell it if its something nice. I already started this yesterday by wearing a blouse I havent worn yet that I bought at a thrift store a few months back. And what Ive done is washed it, and hung the hanger on my clothes rack backwards. Kind of a weird project and way to get rid of stuff but Im kind of a weird gal. Lol. Do you ever do stuff like this? Whats your limit on how long you will keep a piece of clothing?

That is a nice challenge and by the year ends you would have law and order in your wardrobe and you may even order for more.

I have clothes that I have had forever because I just love them and they are to comfy to let go.. and I have clothes that have not been worn yet.. so I will finally bag them up and donate them.

@chrissbergstrom Good point. I guess I am like that too. I still have the shirt I did a job interview in 2.5 years ago. Lol!

It happens with me sometimes. The clothes I love the most are set aside and not thrown.

I have kept clothes forever! I need to try wearing some things and getting rid of them if I don't think I like them. First I have to lose a little weight!

Thats also my goal. Because some things have gotten a little too tight. I am sure with nicer weather it will fall off naturally :)

@maezee I tend to weigh less in winter as I am more active. I better do something before the heat of summer

I think girls love to do this. I am so entertained how girls need to decide which clothes need to stay or go.

Long as you're having fun, that's all that matters lol. I keep my favorite shirts until the holes in them get big, then they got to go.

Haha. Maybe I am a little particular. I get sick of certain clothes and I have far too many!

I keep clothing too long. I keep it until it no longer fits, has stains or has holes in it. I should do something like your challenge, it sounds very effective.

Yes. I am mostly the same way! And some nice new tops with no holes have barely been worn once or twice. Go figure!
