Why don't you... get rid of any less than fab clothes

You know the ones I mean. The I-wish-they-still-fit jeans, the seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time top, the you’ll-totally-be-able-to-wear-it-again bridesmaid dress, the bumps-in-all-the-wrong-places bra.

Not only are they taking up precious wardrobe real estate, they make you feel bad – and who needs that? They make you feel guilty for the money you spent on something you never wear, they make you feel terrible that you’re not that size any more, they make you feel frumpy or uncomfortable if you do wear them.

I know when I open my closet I want it to consist of outfits that make me feel fabulous. The solution to that is not to go out and buy more fabulous clothes, it’s to get rid of anything that’s less-than-fabulous so that your wardrobe is 100% wearable.

So this weekend, why don’t you go through your wardrobe and get rid of any less-than-fab clothes?

  • We do this all the time. My daughter will bring over things she no longer wants also. Any clothes that we gather. All go to the school my husband works at. There are so many kids who are happy for these gently used items. Even new makeup or samples that come with things we’ve bought. Find a school near your home, and ask if they would take what you have to offer. My husband is a teacher/coach for a high school. There are young mothers who can use things for their babies also. It’s a great way to give back.

    • Lovely idea Rossana! I take all of mine to charity.
