Moving out of my college dorm after the first year hit me with a huge reality check. I had way too many clothes. And half of them I didn't even wear. Shopaholic + lazy = disaster.
When I was younger, my mom used to make me throw my old clothes that were too big or small for me anymore in a trash bag. She'd take our enormous collections that we gathered to the local Goodwill store and donate them. We didn't really care where the clothes went or what happened to them—it just served as a place to dispose of the unwanted clothes. My mom did this annually and we moved through lots of clothes.
