Time to get rid of my old clothes

I have some clothes in my closet that I will never wear. Either it no longer fits me or I am just not into it anymore. Every time I tell myself it is time to let it go I just cannot part with it and it remains taking up space in my closet. The time to get rid of it has been long overdue. How the heck do I finally pull the plug and do it? I don't have to throw it in the trash. I can donate it to the Salvation Army or some other clothing drive. It is still in good condition. Have you gone through this as well where you need to throw something out but you just can't do it?

I often go through that. It is hard to get rid of clothes. I kept some clothes that were too small for a long time. Then when I lost weight and they fit, I didn't like them. So, they were easy to get rid of. Some of the big clothes were easy to get rid of too.

I gave away two large garbage bags of clothes last year to our clothing giveaway at church. It felt good to get rid of them. I did the same this year, but only had a small grocery bag. I'll do the same next year. It's good to get rid of them.

I've held on to a bunch of clothes for a loonnnng time - but this month I have been determined to clear out clothes and other stuff around the house. My letting-go was a domino effect from other projects here . . . if I wanted more space, I HAD to get rid of A LOT. My intentions of selling were just never going to happen. I've donated bags upon bags already . . . still working on getting more out!
