    cleaning out my clothes!!

    So I'm cleaning out my room (mainly my clothes) so it's nice and clean and when I move out, my sister will have it all for herself. =]

    So any ideas on how to make my HUGE pile of clothes, smaller?
    I know the "keep/toss/charity" rule but what are some basics I should keep?

    Thank you everyone!

    It very much depends on what you're wanting to do. If you're wanting a completely new wardrobe, then get rid of all but some basic t-shirts, tanks, underwear, and a couple old pairs of jeans for random things (never know when you could need 'em).

    If you're wanting to just minimize your wardrobe, get rid of anything that you don't see yourself wearing within the next week/month. If you won't wear it within that time... I highly doubt you'll wear it later. Exceptions would be ultra-nice dresses and/or business suits. Those could come in handy at any time. Just keep them nicely stored away.

    With the keep/toss/charity rule... what do you mean? With charity, my rule is this: don't give anything away to it that you wouldn't wear yourself (I'm not talking about style, but whether or not it's worn and/or trashy). Like... think about if you were in their shoes. Would you want someone's second-hand clothes that look like they've been dragged behind a truck and been run over a zillion times? So imagine you're in their shoes, and give them only what you yourself would want to have. Toss anything that you don't want, and that you don't think anyone else would want. You COULD however, re-use the cloth... if it's not bad quality.

    For the most part... use discretion. And the week/month rule that I like to use.

    Gah, I am trying to do the same thing! Moving overseas and I need to get rid of a lot of my wardrobe, the problem is some clothes have only been worn once or twice and I paid a lot of money for! I don't wanna throw them away! I have offered some to friends and put some ebay. I find selling clothes on ebay is easier if you sell a few things as a "set". Ie sell three shirts together of same size instead of just one on its own (unless it is something rather unique ;) )

    Goodluck! I understand the pain hahah
