  • I would donate the clothes that you haven't worn in the past 2 years and the clothes that don't fit anymore. I recently did my closets over and did this same thing. I had like 5 bags of clothes I took to Goodwill.

  • This is my house!!! I just went through my son's clothes. I got rid of a ton of T shirts just so everything can fit. The problem is, my son wears the same T shirts for years. I could give away bags and bags of clothes and their drawers would still be overflowing.

  • We go through our clothes twice a year at the beginning of summer and winter and pack bags of old or wore out clothes. I prefer to give them to someone we know who can use them, like a younger neighbor or friend, but will put them into good will. We also get clothes from a neighbor who is a size larger, great too, she is an only child and has nice stuff to pass onto my daughter. With 3 kids it really helps! So I like to pass our stuff onto someone else who can use it.

  • I am having this problem right now. This weekend I'm going through everyones clothes and I will give the kids clothes to one of the younger nephews and then our clothes either to my aunt or donate them to the womens shelter and a non-profit place. I do it a few times a year.
