What are you doing with them?

The clothes that no longer fit... what are you doing with them?

Donating?  Selling on ebay?  Putting away in case you need them again in the future?

I have a pair of jeans that are about 3 sizes too big and I still keep them. I wear them with a belt on laundry day. The jeans still look new so I see no sense in selling them or giving them away.

I've kept all of my clothes that don't fit - either way (too big or too small)!  I keep my larger pants for when it's "that time of the month" because they are loose and more comfortable.  I hate feling like a stuffed sausage!

I give them away to friends that can wear them or use as "goal" clothes themselves.

I am doing the same... But it's for my mom, sister and cousins. My mom has gotten down from a 22 to my old 16 jeans. It's really motivating to others to see their results and help them keep moving toward to catch up with you. 

Quoting momlovestorun:

I kept one of my largest pair of jeans and a sweater.
The rest got donated, or sold. I was keeping one size up in clothes there for a while..However, since i have been getting closer to my ultimate goal..I have not been keeping a size up. I may keep the size I am in now until i hit my goal. That all depends on how many sizes i drop in the next 20ish lbs.

when I first started losing, I donated most of my items. Now I am selling most of them because I have less. lol
Can't wait to get to my 'forever size' and start building an awesome collection of outfits. :)

I give them away as I outgrow them. NEVER would I keep my fat clothes... that's just ASKING for failure.

I usually gave them away to Good Will. If they were an expensive pair, I may keep them in a bucket.

I've given to friends, donated, tossed, or sold in garage sales.
