What did you do with clothes that are now too large for you?

Keep or donate? If you are keeping them, why?

    hah! I've been wondering this myself. Do people keep their clothes that no longer fit just in case?

    I kept them so quite a while (because i didnt want to buy new clothes yet) then I donated them. although it would be fun to keep one pair if you have a good amount to lose to compare them to your new smaller sized ones

    Keeping them for some time, I'm working out in a few (don't really care how I look when working out or on track)

    Then I will eventually donate.

    Kept some and got rid of some. I got rid of my largest clothes when I first lost a lot of weight 6-7 years ago but kept some of my in between sized clothes (part of this also was the transition from college to "adult" world aka business casual). This time, I am keeping my larger clothes to be used as maternity clothes when needed. After that, I will get rid of them.

    I donated most of it (kept some to use as "work on the car" or out in the shop clothes that I don't care about getting dirty). I do wish I had a pair still from when I was at my heaviest 'cause I love those comparison photos.

    I donated most of my clothes of a certain size I will probably end up donating more down the road. I kind of keep the clothes that are an in-between size, some shirts that are XL are tight others fit well and same with XXL some fit well where I am at and others I swim in. I think once I fit into all XL shirts and all XXL are swimming on me then I will donate the XXL or keep them for just around the house wear. Same with pants and suits. I don't plan on being that large again so once I hit goal weight there is no real reason to keep those clothes so donating is the best option in my opinion.

    I donate my clothes. I don't plan on gaining back to where I was. I think I have a few old work shirts hanging around the back of my closet to pull out and see how far I have become.
    There are so many people out there that would be able to put old clothes to use that I feel it it selfish for me to hang on to things I am not using anymore.
