What time of year to you pick through your closet for Goodwill donations?

Antipova Antipova
I'm trying to get up motivation to through my closet and put together a few bags for donation for Goodwill this evening. I usually do it in the spring or summer, but then my winter clothes are always in the back so I never am motivated enough to through them. But now they're in front! I'm going to do it!

When do you go through your clothes for Goodwill/Salvation Army donations?

I just do it whenever my closet is too full and I need some space. As a matter of fact, I should probably do it again REALLY soon!

Ha, I should have put a "Hey! I'm gonna do it right now!" poll option.


Okay. Eesh, so daunting! I don't know why I'm afraid of clothes. And I got a $100 Duluth Trading Co. GC for my birthday so I can even replace a thing or two if it turns out I need to.

I don't do it often enough. Every now and then though, I'll get inspired and go through everything I have to get rid of stuff.

LOL I usually do it when my Aunt writes me, and tells me how she just finished going through all their closets and their spare bedroom and how many boxes and bags for donation they came up with... then I get really inspired and think "I can do that too!" Then sometimes I do it... or not. I don't know why I have such a hard time doing it. Once I sit down to actually do it, it isn't nearly as hard as I imagined it would be.

Whenever I get my hands on something we will not be wearing anymore, I'll fold and pile them in the guest room, when there's enough to fill a large garbage bag, I'll bag and drop it off at Goodwill.

We do it two to three times a year. Our rule of thumb is "if you haven't worn it in a year/entire season, you'll probably not go back to it next year." It seems to work well,and our small closets thank us.

I've done it a couple different ways, when I lives where I could were most of my clothes year round it was almost never. Now that I have season and less closet space it tends to be with the changing of the seasons.

I've found the turn the hangers backwards at the beginning of the season trick works well. Anything that hasn't been turned around when it is worn by the end of the season is out.

Probably 2x a year. I try to make sure I do it and get it time to write off on my taxes.

I have a lot of clothes but usually keep them.

When the seasons change I try to thin out our closets. For my kids I try putting stuff in the give away box when I fold the laundry, but my youngest son will pull the stuff he likes out of the box if he really likes something. He is growing like a weed! And he's like a puppy, he doesn't realize how big he is.

I don't do it at a set time of year, but I do do it probably two or three times a year. It usually happens when I see that show Hoarders and it always makes me think "OMG what if my house gets like that!!!" so I promptly go through and get rid of everything I don't use.

Mind you, I am in no way shape or form a hoarder. I get rid of items easily and have a couple of rooms that don't even have furnature in them let alone junk. It's just that show freaks me out for some reason.

Whenever I decide to actually get off my butt and go through my clothes. Last time I did that, though, I ended up checking out clothes at the goodwill and bought one of my own dang shirts back!!

Never did it, because I have absolutely no idea if there's such organization here somewhere (I mean, in my city at least) But I'm going to!

I do it a couple times a year.

I don't. I very rarely shop for clothes, and when I do it's because the clothes I have have become so ripped and torn that they're not fit for anyone to wear. I don't think the recipients would thank me to get my old clothes.

I wear my civie clothes out to the point that they are beyond giving to Goodwill.

We usually do it 1-2 times a year based on their pick-up schedule locally. I think it tends to be spring and fall.

Only before something big like moving. I'm pretty poor right now and I wear my clothes out and don't have a bunch of clothes anyway.

Usually in the spring I pick through my own clothes, but I really don't own many, so I have been slacking. However I make up for it in kids clothes, but I give those to the Army Vets. Twice a month I get a post card in the mail to leave unwanted clothing for them on my porch and they come and get them. I prefer to do it that way.

In the spring I put away all the winter clothing and take out all the summer stuff. Whatever I haven't used in the winter I set aside for give away/donating. In the fall I put away all the summer clothing and take out the winter, and whatever I haven't used that summer gets taken somewhere. Seems to be working out so far. Nicer clothing I have trouble letting go of because I don't just want to give them to some random stranger, and these kind of stuff just takes up space.

We don't have a specific time to do that. But I can say we do it when we need to reduce the space in the closet.

MrWishyWashy MrWishyWashy
Whenever I run out of space and have to get rid of old stuff!

Not often. I'm too poor to replace stuff all the time.

I always have a box of stuff to donate going in my closet. Whenever I feel I don't wear something enough or don't like it enough, I throw it in the box. We typically take donations to the thrift store once a month.
