I have eight pairs of underwear in my drawer that don't even belong to me.
More pairs getting tossed, as I was putting them into purgatory I decided they really didn't make the cut.
These are my criteria for throwing something away. These are the easy to toss items, they don't fit well, they are well used and don't look good anymore, I've never worn them, or they are not comfortable.
So the things that I put my definitely keep box were the things that when I picked them up I said, "this is something that I've worn recently, know that I like and fit well. It was in good condition and I know I would wear it again soon without hesitation.
As this was the first cut and I did not want to slow myself down, I gave myself the middle zone. I put items in this is one that I thought these are useful, and I remember really liking , are in good shape, and I probably paid too much for. This box will go in the front of the draw and I will use only these for the next few weeks. If I pick something up in the morning and I think I don't like that because _____,you fill in the blank, then I will get rid of it. However, if I wear it and like it it can stay, if at the end of the day they were uncomfortable it is out. Since starting to clear out, I have been known to actually take something off mid day and get rid of it.
