So we're doing the change of seasonal clothing. I pulled out all the boxes of my husband's summer clothes and told him to pick out what he thinks he'll wear. He went through them and picked out more than he will ever wear, same as every other year. In November when the weather changes I will have to wash all of it before putting it away again. When he finished picking out what he wanted, he told me to look through everything left and see if there were anything he never wears because there was no sense in keeping it anymore.
So the next day I looked through everything and found lots of things to toss but I told myself to just focus on a few things so that he wouldn't feel overwhelmed. I picked out three polo shirts, including one with mold on it, two very faded and dated t-shirts and a pair of athletic shorts that probably last fit him two decades ago. I've never seen him wear any of those things. Ever. For as long as I've known him. You all know where this is going, don't you? He only let the moldy shirt go, and that was after a long discussion about how even if I washed it we'd have to keep it separate because it would probably get moldy again. He didn't want to get rid of the polo shirts because the only reason he doesn't wear them is that he is overweight and they don't look good. Right, last year when he wasn't overweight, he didn't wear them because they weren't a brand name. There's always an excuse.
We are running out of space in our closets, but even worse, I'm the one who has to take care of all of these clothes that he never wears and it's my fault if they ever get ruined.
I am so tired of having to waste my precious time cleaning stuff that doesn't get used!
