Without much effort, we were able to easily get rid of over a month's worth of items - take a look at the tally in the sidebar! We filled the car to the roof and headed to Goodwill. I have to admit - it is a much better feeling to purge, purge, purge than it is to pay the credit card bill at the end of the month :)
I'm keeping a Goodwill box in the closet for the time being as I continue to thin out my wardrobe. I've also started a box to take to a consignment shop. I've turned all of the hangers around so that I can keep track of which items I'm wearing and which items are just taking up space. In six months, those hangers that haven't yet been touched will be strictly evaluated and likely sent to the consignment shop.
