    I need to do this too. I've got so many things in closets that I really don't like the way they look on me and there's no way on earth I'm going to wear them again! Way past time to purge!!

    I do have some things I hold on to for years when they don't match anything in my wardrobe. I will always find a use for them later. My thing is the sweater I really like but doesn't fit that well so I MUST wear it under a jacket. So it really has limited use. Or the top that has a spot that must be covered up with a sweater. Why am I keeping these things?
    Would you believe I KNOW that I have at least five outfits in the closet with tags on thiem?Only 2 of them were bought last year. The others----------not sure when.
    Gotta get the act together,I plan to retire next year.

    Just before the bump started to grow, DH and I went out and bought a bunch of great new clothes. Now, I have a stack of jeans and khakis that are just waiting for this baby to be born so I can start wearing them. I have stretched out most of the t-shirts and sweaters I bought before the bump began to grow.

    But I've lived in the same four pairs of maternity pants for the last six months and am just DYING to get some new duds. After this baby is born and my body is mine again, I'm going to do the same thing -- toss the stuff that doesn't fit or I don't like anymore and get myself some cute new (to me) clothes. My grandmother gave me $100 and my aunt gave me $50 that I am saving for then.

    I am doing this very thing. (not just clothes) Taking the whole lot to the church for their yard sale.What doesn't sell, will go to the Salvation Army. I have soooooo much stuff and shame on me for letting it get this out of hand.
