The Great "Giveaway"

You know how you have those favorite peices of clothing that you just don't want to get rid of? The ones that "someday" you will get back into. Along with that, everytime I had clothes that I "someday" wanted to get back into, I had people telling me, "Oh keep them, you will get back into them". I decided to go through all those things a few weeks ago. I had saved SO many clothes, no one would ever believe it. Pretty much everything looked brand new, some as old as probably ten years ago.

So, really needing the extra room and fed up with all of my "someday" clothes I decided to start digging them out and boxing them up for the Goodwill. Someone had filled me in on a donations calculator that I used to figure what I could deduct from my taxes.  I had ALOT, I mean ALOT of things to give away. So much, I'm kinda afraid to claim that much on my taxes.

I went from having at lest ten totes crammed full of things I *might* get into, to one tote of clothes that I can probably get into if I lose a few pounds. My spare room is finally cleaned out and rearranged. And all of this is now at the Goodwill (BTW this was what I took on my SECOND trip to the Goodwill).....
