It’s been a long time since I cleaned out my closet and drawers. I’m the kind of person that doesn’t like getting rid of stuff. But yesterday I realised that my drawers were overflowing with clothes I never use, and I’m having a hard time finding the clothes I actually want to wear.
So I ripped out all the clothes and one by one I picked up the clothing items and thought to myself ‘will I ever wear this again?’ For the ones I said no to, I chucked them into a pile. That pile grew larger and larger.
Most of the clothing I’m getting rid of are either too small, really outdated or just not appropriate for my age. For a moment I thought ‘should I try to sell these on Trade Me?’ But then I realised that I really cannot be bothered.
So I bagged them up and I’ll likely drop them off at one of those clothing bins. It ended up being two rather large bags full.
My drawers have so much more space now! It feels great, but at the same time I’m still sad to get rid of all this. Oh well, I need to accept that I’m older and my body has changed. Might as well let someone else enjoy the clothing!
How often do you clean out your closet?
