BBBS just came by and picked up 5 bags of stuff. We cleared the house of old clothes and a variety of other things.
It's getting harder and harder for me to find clothes to donate to them each time. I have gone through my clothes so many times now that I'm down to items I really like - but I just don't wear. It's nice to get the closet more clean. And it's not like I'm "out of clothes" by any stretch of the imagination. I still have an entire two-door closet full of dresses, shirts, and tshirts. Plus I have a tall bureau with my sweatpants and sweatshirts and yoga clothes. Plus under-bed drawers with socks and undies and such. So clearly I still have a ton of clothes. It's just at this point that they are all clothes I *would* wear and now it's getting down to the reality of which I *do* wear.
My boyfriend was actually good this time - I brought down **six** boxes from the attic of his old clothes that he hasn't looked through in years. He did in fact finally agree to give some away, things he liked but he'd never wear (he doesn't wear white shirts for example, because he feels they aren't good with his weight). So we whittled him down to three boxes - one of too large stuff, one of too small stuff, and one of memorabilia. So those are labelled and are going back in the attic.
He has OODLES of clothes in general. Massive piles. Lots and lots and lots of tshirts. He has a two-door closet in the bedroom full of them plus one in his office that is super-jam-packed with clothes. Plus large piles in the bedroom. I should take a photo. Then under-bed storage jammed with socks of all varieties, then also a six-drawer bureau with underwear and undershirts and so on. But I'm taking this one step at a time. At least we got the attic better set. Next step will be to work on making a path in his office to the closet in there - we literally can't take one step in the office at the moment - and working on that closet. Clearly since he hasn't been able to GET to that closet in years, whatever in there can't be too critical.
What are you guys giving away to charity this month?
