I've been talking on and off about cleaning out our closets (mostly, mine) and donating the stuff that we don't use anymore to the Salvation Army.
I started doing this last year and was able to put together a big bagful [think santa claus sack] and just set it aside in a corner of my home office. I never got around to actually dropping this off because I wanted to get a receipt and get the value deducted from my taxes. Soon, the big bag of clothes in the corner of the room just blended into the background and was forgotten.
So last night, we were sorting out the laundry and started running out of clothes hangers. Our closets are bulging and are about to burst. Even the laundry closet, which used to be empty, is now FULL of off-season clothes and jackets. I even have a hard time lifting the lid of the washer because I have to push the clothes aside. This is not good.
I find it so hard to part with my possessions. :(
Now, I'm going through these clothes again and I have to force myself to fold them and put them in the bag meant for the SA. I keep thinking that they're sayang and that I'll need them again when I get back to my old size -- haha! I guess I should know by now that this is never gonna happen, right ?
