Clearing Out, Giving Away

It’s been a while since I last posted. In the intervening months I’ve had my baby and watched him grow up and take his first steps. I realized recently that my closets were full of maternity clothes that I didn’t need anymore and baby clothes that Ducky had already outgrown.

Fortunately, I have a friend who is expecting a baby in April and another friend who has a baby boy a few months younger than mine. All the extra clothes have been collected, boxed, and I’m giving them away this week. There’s no point in hanging on to these things I don’t need, especially when I know people who will really use and appreciate them.

Giving away these clothes is also good practice in letting go. I know there’s a lot of junk in my closets that I’m needlessly clinging to. The more I can get used to giving things away, the more I think I’ll be able to improve my ability to conquer the clutter in my closets.

3 Thoughts on “Clearing Out, Giving Away

  1. Hooray for a new post!
    There are some things in my closet that should probably get sent away, but as a male student how I decide “i’m too old for this.”
    Also, I have lots of former-employer polo shirts which are too nice to trash…. and if I donated them that’s what would happen.

  2. Maybe you could subtly alter the embroidery on those polo shirts, like when someone gets a tattoo altered to hide the name of an ex.
