Lost weight, cleaning out closet!
OK - here's my situation: I've recently lost over 25 lbs. and now have all these clothes that are size 12's. I'm in mostly 10's and 8's now. I still want to lose more but have hit a plateau and not really losing much more. I've bought a few new clothes (I work in an office and have to dress up during the week, Friday is jean day). But my closet is full of these 12's that I keep holding onto, thinking that I MIGHT gain the weight back and don't want to part with nice clothes, even if they are too big for me. I'm thinking of cleaning them all out, storing them in storage bins in my storage building, and thus, freeing up space for new clothes, a size or two smaller. My question is - how long do ya'll hold onto clothes that are too big (or too small) before you get rid of them. I've done this before in past years and held onto the too-big clothes for about 3 years, only to find that when I DID finally gain the weight back and got back in those bigger sizes, the styles had changed and I no longer wanted the clothes. Any suggestions?
