Cleaning out my closet

Pile of old clothes
When I came home 3 weeks ago, it was the first time I’d brought most of my clothes back with me since Easter, during which time I’ve amassed additional garments. Trying to fit all of this in my drawers and wardrobe at home became somewhat of a challenge, so today I had a clear-out of clothes that I no longer wear or that don’t fit. This came to:

  • 7 t-shirts
  • 6 shirts
  • 3 jumpers
  • 5 pairs of trousers
  • 1 coat

These will all be going to a local charity shop sometime soon. There was another pair of trousers that won’t, on the basis that it had that many holes in it that it wasn’t really fit for anyone. That’ll be going to a textile bank for recycling.
I also found some clothes that I hadn’t seen for years which still fitted, including a pair of jeans that are probably 4 or 5 years old that fit almost perfectly. I’m guessing they get relegated to the back of my wardrobe because they were too big for me at the time, or because I was starting to lose favour with jeans in favour of khaki trousers with big pockets.


  1. Please tell me you’re not throwing the huge python tshirt away? It’s far too amusing for such a fate 😛

  2. Sorry 🙂 . It’s huge on me (size XL) and I haven’t worn it in a long time. The t-shirt, I mean. Not the huge python. I can’t really take that off.
