Not only did I hold on to my skinny clothes, but after eleven years I now fit my them. We should carefully consider our personal needs and where we are at mentally before subscribing to what sounds like an idea worth adopting. My clothes are outdated, but they are my clothes and part of my past that hold fond memories for me. I am glad I was able to wear them again. Report
Great article. I'm just getting ready to clean out old clothes that I haven't touched in at least 3 months. That of course includes clothes that haven't fit me in a couple of years. Time to be realistic! Report
This article came along the day AFTER I decided to get rid of all the clothes that are too small. They’ve been in storage tubs in my basement, but the time has come...for sure! Report
Okay! Maybe! I will take this under consideration! Report
I actually kept some skinny jeans AND fit back into them! But they were out of style; the last time I wore them was probably almost 20 years ago. It felt good to know I had lost the weight -- and it felt even better to finally get rid of those out of style skinny jeans. Report
I'm pretty good about donating things... DH on the other hand keeps (and wears) his old clothes because he's too cheap to buy new ones. He isn't frugal about the things he loves (2 vintage cars, 4 motorcyles), but clothes just aren't important to him. Every once in a while I sneak in something new and have tried without much success to scrap some very out-of-date shirts. He has weighed the same for probably 30 years... still under 150, while I struggle. Report
Definitely not giving up my DKNY leggings ! Better than the scale for me. I do have a couple of special outfits I keep... wish I had a few of my mom’s old dresses.
Otherwise, it might be an idea to give things away that that you have not win in a year. Report

Good article. I clear out what I will never wear again and also tend to hang onto a range of differently sized jeans so that I am comfortable. Report
I've been saving old jeans for making seat repairs for camping chairs, old t-shirts for sewing into onesies for newborns (for needy mothers in our town), etc. Whole, clean clothes either given away or donated. Report

I have mostly saved the classic, quality pieces that I really love. I can now wear many of them. The few sentimental pieces I saved, I don't intend on wearing, however, I don't care to donate. I donate everything else that I can to our local mission/shelter.

Why do they have the Skinny Jeans Challenge then? Seems contradictory to me! Report
