If you do not use something or wear something for a long time do you get rid of it?

I do not, I should, I have heard if you do not use something in 6 months it is safe to say you probably won't!

  • It kind of depends on what it is sometimes it's like you only use something 1 time a yr do you really want to go back out and buy it again? Like my pressure cooker, water bath canner, clothes I take to the goodwill or find someone else to wear them if I can. I go through things twice a yr and see what I need and don't need and then decide

  • I do. I didn't used to, but I got sick of clutter making my house chaos, and my life more stressful. Now I toss, donate, sell, whatever it takes....just wish I could get hubby on board.

  • No, I do not. I only purge when it doesn't fit (the kids clothes), it is stained or otherwise ruined, or I know somebody could benefit more (such as a neighbor but not goodwill). I really don't have much stuff lying around. I have one tote of clothes that I don't wear but I take them out once a year or so and switch my clothes around.

  • I have a brand new pair of boots sitting in my closet. I have not worn them but plan to wear them to my family reunion.

  • If I haven't worn it in a year or it doesn't fit I get rid of it. I give it to charity or to friends. I don't have the space to keep things that we don't use.

  • I hate clutter or useless crap, I toss everything all the time, normally I freecycle it or donate to this one charity I love.

  • If I've not worn it in a season - it goes to the local shelter.
