What did you do with your old clothes?

    Depending on how big they fit, I might take them in a bit, it they are way to big I will offer them to friends or donate them to charity. I will admit, I have held on to some of my clothes just incase I ever gain a few lbs :)

    I sold what I could at a women's resale shop and donated the rest. Glad to have them gone...never going back!

    I donated my clothes to Savers ( a.k.a. Big Brothers & Big Sisters).

    I've been giving mine to people who have asked for it or donating it, I have to get rid of it as soon as it's too big! I can't go back!

    I'm not waiting for goal to part with clothing. I'm keeping no old, too big clothing at all as I lose. There is no reason for me to keep them. I'm confident that I have made lifestyle changes that will prevent need of larger clothes in the future.

    Worn out things were tossed months ago. I started taking the best clothing to a consignment shop to help pay for smaller clothing & the rest of the too big clothes were donated. It got too confusing trying to figure out what fit & what was too big.

    I have had to completely replace my wardrobe & will have to do it a few more times as I continue to lose. I have become the Queen of Clearance Deals. lol... As these clothes get too big they are also going to consignment. as they get too big.

    I love how many people donate their old clothes! We donate everything, usually once a year or so we go thru all of our clothes(too big or not) and donate whatever we don't use. I keep my older son's clothes for my little one, but when the little one grows out of a size I try to find another local Navy family to help out. I just gave like three bags full of my younger's clothes away a couple weeks ago. Once I get down to the size I want to be and maintain it for a bit I will be donating everything. Too bad I recently donated all my pre-kid clothes, I would probably be able to wear some of the bigger ones soon! Ah well, just an excuse to get all new clothes when I get down there :)

    I saved them for the next time I get pregnant and need to lose the baby weight. Hehe.

    I've donated the majority of my old clothes to charity. I've kept a few bits and pieces to remind me how far I've come, and I've kept things like hoodies and PJs because they're still comfy even though they're way too big now. But I like to make sure that other people will benefit, so I like to donate as much as I possibly can.

    I posted mine on Craigslist for free. I had no use for them anymore and I don't feel the need to make money off of them when there are plenty of people in need of clothing who cannot afford them.

    I donated clothes to an organization called WORKING WARDROBES here in Southern California. I offered a trade, let me donate these clothes and pick out a few outfits as if I were in need and we have a deal, because what I donated was 100 times more than what I picked out. They had some really cute things for people that work in the Corporate world and I don't want to spend a ton of money as I am not where I want to be. This is also a tax write off as they are a non-profit and could really use Plus Size clothing!

    For this next round, I will look into some consignments shops.

    Sold, donated and kept 1 or 2 that I liked even though they didn't fit anymore

    Sold good stuff on eBay, and the rest went to a clothes recycling 'bin' at my local charity shop. I do this routinely anyway, even if I haven't changed size or shape. I like to shop for clothes!

    Gave them to friends who wanted them, and whatever they didn't want, donated.

    Haven't really lost enough to see a big difference in my clothes, but recently had a clear out of old, too small clothes. I donated them all to Cancer Research and Age Concern.
    Then I bought 'new' clothes from charity shops; a mixture of stuff that fits slightly tight and 'new' too small clothes for when I've lost the weight. :)

    Once I gained weight I never had a huge wardrobe. a few pants a few dresses and some shirts. all from costco or used, so no real value in them anyway. Most of what I have I'll probably keep for gardening in. I still have a lot of my bigger wardrobe from when I could wear cute clothes. (if I can't wear cute clothes why bother has been my mantra)
