Too small clothes
Are you keeping them in hopes that you'll fit back into them? Do they have sentimental value to you? Are you just having trouble getting started?
I would go through them and be brutal- are you EVER going to want to wear it again? When you lose weight won't you want to feel new and clean and fresh and in style?
Keep the things that have real sentimental value and that are staples/timeless. Pass on the rest and start setting aside a little money to buy new things that make you feel good about the weight you have lost.
Maybe do one bin at a time and bag up anything you don't want and offer it on Freecycle or pop it into the donation bin. I bet you'll fee great when they're gone!
Okay that will be my next clean out clutter project. I printed out the 2013 in 2013 chart today! I will report back!
That's a great idea. I hope you are enjoying some extra room in your closet right now. If you are selling some clothes by consignment, you can use the proceeds to reward yourself with something lovely that you can wear now. You'll have room for it in your closet!
One friend took 19 pieces for her and her daughter today. At least that much again is still in the box for give away tonight. Anything I don't get rid of tonight I will donate somewhere Wednesday!
I agree to let it all go. I've recently gone through a bunch of old clothes after losing some baby weight and although it fit size-wise, I hardly kept anything. The one or two things that I did keep I haven't really worn so really should that go too. The styles seem to have changed even for basics so my jeans were hitting in a spot that wasn't comfy even while they were too big elsewhere, tops were much shorter than I prefer to wear and I felt my belly kept sticking out of them. I've opted to buy inexpensive things while losing weight instead, even clearance from Old Navy works better when it's in a current style, and that way you don't have to spend a lot. Plus (and this may be a personal choice) wearing new clothes made me feel better and was more flattering to the figure than the older styles.
