a) you might need them for a fancy dress party?
b) you can’t bear to get rid of them as they represent your best years?
c) you are determined to fit back into them *one day*?
d) you just haven’t gotten around to getting rid of them?
If it is any of these, it is time to let them go.
If that fancy dress invite comes along you can always go to Vinnies or buy a crazy wig and some flouro accessories from a $2 shop (and then part with them afterwards).
If you are determined to get back into them, well, can I just say from personal experience that when I give away my kilos (I am doing this myself at the moment and I am giving them away cause I don’t want to find them again!) I intend to go and buy myself some new things and I have started a savings regime whereby I reward myself with some $$ to put towards my new wardrobe.
I have kept a couple of special outfits from my smaller days for motivation but as I shrink, I am donating the items that are in good condition and no longer required so that someone else can get some use out of them as I will never need them again.
Whether you are holding onto excess clothes/toys/tools/…[insert item here]… do yourself a favour and (assuming they are in good condition of course) give them away – you will feel lighter in mind and body.
Will you join me in decluttering whatever it is that is weighing you down?
Happy decluttering – get started today and I promise it will feel good. It might not be easy, but it will be worth it!
