Clean out your closets, get organized and donate your clothes to the #donate4good program from Glad!

Towards the end of every season, I try to clean out my dresser and closets and de-clutter my space. Fall is almost here so it’s time to clean out your closets and donate the clothes you no longer need to the Donate4 Good program from Glad Canada.

Usually the first thing I do is take all the clothes I have and dump them on the bed, then I go through it all one by one and decide if it’s time to let the pieces go.

Like this dress from my last trip to Hawaii back in 2011, and it was the last time I wore it too. I have been keeping it just in case I go again, but we all know I’ll just buy another. It’s in great shape (aside from the wrinkles) so in the donation bag it went.

Or these work clothes. The last time I wore them was back when I sold furniture and that was back in 2011 as well. They have barely been worn (I bought them right before I found out I was pregnant) and are in great shape. I have been keeping them in case I go to a job where I need dress clothes. Who knows what the future may bring but the blog is going well and if I need to go back to work in the future, I can invest in new clothes. I’m sure the colors will be a little “old” by then anyway.

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I had a lot of clothes I was holding on to just because of the size on the label. I kept them because the size was such a number that even if I didn’t fit or had to be uncomfortable and look like a sausage stuffed in a casing I felt proud having it. Ridiculous – they’re gone now.

When you clean out your closets, not only do you declutter and do some good but you also get more organized and see what you actually need for clothes in the coming season (note to self: you have 4 yoga pants, 3 workout capris and a bunch of workout tops but only 1 pair of jeans and 2 nice shirts).

  1. I also go through my closets on a regular basis. It’s so nice to get rid of things that I’m not using so then it’s easier to find the things I do want to keep. 🙂 Donating is such a good idea. It’s great to know that others can use the pieces that were just sitting unused in my closet until then. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am all about the donation. I love to downsize (as you know) and de-cluttering is my middle name. You should try and fold the t-shirts in the #KonmarieMethod. So much easier to see and better to sort through.

  3. Sounds like a great program! Wish it was being done in my city. I’d definitely take part. My closets are in dire need of a clean out. Lol…like you, I have dresses that I haven’t worn since an event (or two), from years ago. Always thinking I may wear them again and never do!

  4. I’ve been meaning to clear out my closet. I think I still have clothes from University days that I’m holding on to for some unknown reason (okay… in hopes they’ll fit again. lol) This is such a great idea and I’m already at Loblaws every week, so it’s easy. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Thanks for the info on the GLAD program! I really need to clean out my closet. I find I don’t like half of what is in there, I think my style is changing.. I just don’t know what “Style” is mine any more lol

  6. This is great timing, at the end of the season to get rid of things I don’t wear any more! I also tend to hold on to things for sentimental reasons.
