Do you wear everything in your wardrobe?

March 17, 2007 3:52am CST
Looking through mine i see a lot of things i've bought on impulse in sales. It's unlikely that i will wear them but i feel guilty for having them. After my birthday i'm going to take a trusted friend with me and buy a new wardrobe for the summer and ebay all the things i don't want. Is anyone else in the same situation? Or do you have things you don't like but will wear anyway?

I am ashamed to say that I have got clothes in my wardrobe that I haven't even worn once. Like you, I buy on impulse and sometimes live to regret it - thus the unworn clothes. I know I will never wear some of them so I have decided to have a clear-out - all because of your discussion! I wont feel guilty anymore if I give them to a charity where someone can enjoy them. Thanks for making me sit down and actually think about it linz.

Unfortunately, I don't wear everything that in my wardrobe. Sometimes I didn't even know it exist until I start clean up my wardrobe. More like finding a hidden treasure. And everytime I promised I will try to put em on (even the one that I don't like), but I ended up wearing the same fave clothes again and again and buy new ones instead. Terrible !!! Now, I collect all the clothes that I don't wear and the one that I think I will wear in a coouple big vacuum bags and ready to give away to charity or to people that I know will be happy to have them...

Absolutely! My wardrobe is full of things that I don't wear and I don't think I'll wear them ever again. I have only some favourite jeans and blouses which I wear recently. When I get paid again from work I'll save for some new ones for spring and summer.

I often complain that I don't have enough clothes to wear. We moved to a new house recently and that's when I found out how wrong I was. I even have clothes which I've NEVER ever worn! I gave away the clothes and shoes that I don't plan to use. I've gained weight so I also gave away the clothes that don't fit anymore.

Yes I do wear everything on my wardrobe but after a few months I get bored of wearing the same so I change the combinations and try to buy new one from time to time.

I do have a lot of things that I haven't worn yet, but I plan on wearing them on dates, church, work, and/or school. Once a year I go through my closet and look for things i haven't worn for over a year and then I donate them to the church or homeless shelters.

Nope, definitely don't wear everything in my closet. I just wear the things I like and the rest I ususally either give away or donate to people who need it.

To be honest, there's not much in my wardrobes at the moment that I don't like, there's plenty of stuff that I haven't had the opportunity to wear yet though. Although I do buy on impulse, there are not many times when I've got it home that I don't like it. There's plenty of stuff that don't fit when I get it home and in which case it usually goes on Ebay or if I can't be bothered then it ends up at the charity shop further down the line.

I have so many clothes in my closet that I don't wear anymore. Before I moved into my condo, I got rid of 4 full garbage bags of clothes. Either the clothes didn't fit me anymore or I just didn't care for them. I don't sell my clothes, I give them to Amvets or Purple Heart. If I were to go through my clothes again I would come across a lot that don't fit me anymore as well, BUT I'm determined to drop at least 20 pounds by this summer so then I'll clean out my closet and make room for a whole new flirty summer wardrobe!

Were in the same situation I have lots of things in my wardrobe that i dont use it. Before I went here in Dubai I joined a flea market in one of the shopping mall we have in Negros. I decided to sale all the stuff that i dont use because I couldn't carry them all going here in dubai. If it is happen maybe I pay more in excess baggage.hehehehe..... Anyway try it also you could earn money here faster rather than bid your things in ebays.

I don't wear everything that I have. It seems that I wear pretty much the same thing every week even though I have a nice selection of things to choose from. A lot of the stuff I have, I bought a long time ago and I'm not longer really interested in wearing those things. So I just have them around. I guess I could get rid of them, donate them to someone that can use them, but whatever.

i am an impulsive buyer too, and i waste a lot of money for buying clothes that i think will look good on me or think that soon it will fit me perfectly. i gained weight i still keep my old clothes assuming that someday i can still wear it especially my favorite ones. I soon realized that my closet is too packed with clothes that i'm not wearing and decided to give them away to people who needs it more. I got the space that I needed and also was able to give to other people who would appreciate it more than I do.

i have a lot of things inside my closet that i do not wear anymore, because almost all of them doesn't fit anymore. I used to wear big shirts before. I'm also an impulse buyer. I usually buy on sales, just because its sale, but I think i haven't worn that since i bought it.
