31 Days of Declutter- Day 8

The dreaded task of starting to clean out the basement. I had to get the kids some warmer clothes from the totes I store in the basement. Wearing shorts and tee shirts with a sweatshirt for school was not cutting it anymore. This was an all day process.
This is actually the finished picture- 11 bags of clothes for goodwill! This is not including the 3 bags of garbage I threw out. I can't believe I was saving all of these clothes under our home and either didn't need the size or it wasn't something I would have the kids wear anyway.
I should preface this with my friends and I are big clothing sharers. That is, we are constantly switching hand-me-downs between our kids. Although, my husband just thinks we should buy everything, hand-me-downs have worked well for me....

Except I seem to have a problem keeping too much and not going through it right away, separating things we will use and are worth keeping and things to give away. I am learning. This picture above is what it looked like while I did my sorting.
My bff would be proud of me because I took those 11 bags to goodwill right away instead of leaving them somewhere in my house or in my car intending to go.
What's in your basement?

  1. If you lived close to me, I would be glad to take some clothing/clutter off your hands. We love hand-me-downs as well and have helped us save a lot of money.

  2. Oh my! I have so much clothes in our basement that need to be sorted through. I can't seem to part with my baby stuff so I think I should only save my favorites. That is a few day project for sure!
