Fall Purge

I took Labor Day as a chance to do a little closet clean out. After reaching for a sweater a little earlier than intended a couple weeks ago, I realized I need to do a sweater inventory and purge. I also finally took the leap and ordered a Thred Up “clean out kit” to purge some of the nicer items that I haven’t worn that much. And since I ordered some new underwear, I trashed a few things there as well. Here’s the whole rundown:

Before

Donated:

  • 10 sweaters that are past their prime
  • 5 tees/tanks that I didn’t wear this summer
  • 3 shorts that I didn’t wear this summer
  • 2 pairs of worn out dress pants
  • 1 pair of navy khakis that I haven’t worn in at least 5 years (but kept telling myself I should have 1 pair of khakis)
After (I promise there are fewer)

Trashed:

  • 4 worn out undershirts
  • 12 pairs of underwear

Sent to Thred Up:

  • 2 blazers that are just too big but in great condition
  • 4 dresses that I wore a couple times but just never fit right
  • 2 skirts that I wore maybe twice but are too big and not worth getting tailored

Now my wicker chest of sweaters is organized and ready to go for the season. I also have a reminder of what I have and what I might be on the lookout to replace this fall. I don’t expect a ton of cash from the Thred Up load, but it seemed like a win-win to get those things out of the closet and have the possibility of cash. I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes with a closet purge!
