I have decided to be absolutely ruthless and chuck all the old, badly-fitting, non-flattering stuff away. We are v broke at the moment so I can't afford to buy anything new right now and my weight has been fluctuating like mad - have been everything from a 10 to a 16 over the past five years. Also I changed my hair colour from blonde to red a few years ago but it took some time for me to stop buying reds and pinks - bizarrely it was like I didn't notice that they now clash vilely with my hair!
So I have mountains of clothes and nothing to wear. I have just filled a binbag with the obviously wrong stuff, but am getting a bit confused over what to throw and what to keep. I am a size 14 at the moment but the diet is back on track and am hopeful of fitting into some of the smaller stuff soon so don't want to throw away.
Any tips for making it easier. I feel like my wardrobe is crammed but I live in one pair of jeans IYSWIM.
i live in one pair of jeans too!! they are size smallish 14 got loadsa 12 but just that little bit too tight i binned all the bigger 14s as refuse to get fat again, all stuff that is out of fashion and not worn for ages i binned also any tops that were a bit big, i have kept a few pairs of casual trousers to wear around house when feeling fat!!
Be ruthless if you only wear a limited amount anyway you wont miss all the rest
Can you ebay any of the stuff that you definitely won't wear again? That way, you can raise some cash for your new look.
You'd be amazed at what will sell...my best sell was a Black long M&S cardie that I wore during pregnancy, it went for £20+.
