articles of clothing i mean...it seems no matter how much i get rid of...there is always more to get rid of lol.

Maybe I need to set a number like some people do. I think I read about 2011 which would include everything...down to earrings and socks lol...of clothing related items. Still seems like a lot when there is that big of a number.

How do you sort stuff you do not need or want to keep...do you go by if you havent worn or used it in a year..it goes? or longer?

I clear out the kids stuff seasonally. Some stuff I store cause we are planning to have at least one more kid and other stuff I give away. For them i do it by sizing. For myself i pretty much go through once or twice a year and give away things that I haven't worn in awhile or I don't like anymore. i have alot of clothes too and shoes LOL But i wear them =)

We go through it and if it doesn't fit or they haven't worn it then I get rid of it

 I have 4 girls so we rarely get rid of clothing unless it is torn, badly stained.

when they don't actually fit in the dresser/closet, it's too many. Ack! We have so many wonderful hand-me-downs for DD, but it is just TOO much!!
