It rained all weekend so I took on the project of cleaning out my closets. I didn’t realize how many years it’s been since I dove into them. There were some odd items of clothing tucked in the back corners that I’d literally forgotten all about.
First, I looked at the sizes, because let’s face it, I’m never going to be able to wear some sizes I wore previously. And if I did ever get down to a smaller size, I would want to celebrate with new clothes, anyway. (That ain’t happening, so moving on!) Then I looked at each article and asked myself, ” Am I ever going anywhere that I will want to wear this again?” Surprisingly, the answer was no, a lot. I think I’ve held onto so many things simply because I was too lazy to go through them.
I’ve got everything in plastic bags now, and a few household items packed in boxes, and I’m going to call Purple Heart right now before I procrastinate. Oh good, they can come pick this stuff up on Thursday. I just need to leave it out in my yard or porch early in the morning. I like to donate to Purple Heart – they are a much more worthy charity than Good Will or the Salvation Army. Trust me on this – I checked them all out before deciding which one to call.
