It seems that we never have anything to wear but we have more clothes than we could shake a stick at. After going through my closet I found clothes that I haven't worn in 20 years. What I was saving them for I have no idea...probably thinking I will wear that again. My girls are the same way.
So after doing load of laundry after load of laundry I have told the girls that they have to go through their clothes and keep what they want and the rest is going to Value Village. I actually have a friend that has asked if she can go through the girls hand me downs before I take them to Value Village as there might be something that her daughter would like. I told them I am tired of washing and folding these clothes for them to end up back in the laundry room amongst the dirty towels and they are still folded, so to make sure they go through the clothes I put all their clothes in a pile and they have to go through them and fold them. I don't intend to let them leave these clothes in a pile for a long time. They have til the 15th of the month and then they are all gone and I know there are clothes in there that they both still wear. I have my own share of clothes for Value Village as well. I guess you can say my girls come by the bad habit of not getting rid of anything honestly. :)
I need to make room in my closet for any new clothes that I would like to buy so what better time to start getting ride of the old than at the start of the New Year.
