"Fat" clothes - keep em or burn em

I already know what I plan to do with my fat clothes - I still have my clothes from my highest weight - in a box. They haven't fit in 3 years and I work hard every day to ensure they never do again! I still have a ways to go and my ultimate goal is to take a pic of me standing in ONE pants leg of my size 28 pants. LOL.
SO I'm just curious -what are everybody's plans for their "fat" clothes once they get their desired weight off? And if you have already done so what did you do with yours?

    I have donated most of mine to a battered womens shelter. The others I have given to co-workers.

    I gave my to the local homeless shelter. Not many plus size clothes are donated to the homeless so that is a great place to take them. I have my one outfit I am keeping for when I reach my ultimate goal, but I get rid of everything else as soon as I am down a size. It keeps me motivated to not gain back what I have lost because I don't want to have to buy the same fat clothes again.

    Gave to friends. Some of the sizes I only wore for a month so the clothes were practically new. I do wish I would have kept a pair if my size 24 pants just as a reminder....but GOOD RIDDANCE :-)

    First way to go on keeping out of those clothes for 3 years! Second, I would burn the outfit you hated the most! The one that you always hated to wear but had to because of your weight! Then donate the rest! :)

    Lots of my "fat clothes" have hardly been warn so I am going to have a yard sale to help declutter other areas of my home and out them in that and whatever doesn;t go I am going to donate. I do have a few items that are very near and dear to me and I want them to go to people who will appreciate then so some of my friends have offered to take those pieces off my hands. Of cse I also had some lovely undergarments that were close to never worn, and you can't really donate those or anything so I have decided to make myself a "fat girl" crazy quilt as a way to remind myself how far I let it get and how far I have come.

    I took them to the local women's shelter with the clothes my kids outgrew. Ask for a receipt for your taxes.

    I have one pair of jeans that I will keep just as motivation to NOT let myself go that far again... but the rest I will donate... always feels good to help someone else out, don't you agree?
