Travis and I have decided to move before the wedding (yes, we know it’s crazy…) which means that I am in packing mode. It also means that I’m in “throw it out or donate it if we haven’t used it in a year” mode.
That is, indeed, my motto for most items. If I haven’t worn it, used it, or missed it for a year or more, my life is probably just fine without it. Needless to say, every time we move there is a huge box (or 3) headed to Goodwill.
I have friends, though, who hang onto stuff forever— especially clothing— in the off chance that they might need it somewhere down the line. Even if they already have another item that looks just like it. Even if they haven’t worn it since high school. Even if they subconsciously know that they will never squeeze into it again.
I’m not judging… these friends always have the perfect thing to wear, when I’m often scrambling to throw an outfit together.
So I’m curious which category you fall into, lovely readers.
Do you get a little over-zealous and donate your outfits away? Do you hang on to clothes well past its “best-by” date? Or have you found a happy medium? Share in the comments!
