Yeah its been a while since I last posted here. Wow, great ideas guys. But yeah our dryer broke about a week ago and the laundry room was so messy that we couldn't get it out, so we ended up dragging all the clothes out into the kitchen and after we got the dryer fixed, my mom and I decided to try sorting them out. Were gonna take them all to Faith Rescue Mission. Right now, we've got three GIANT black garbage bags that are filled up with clothes we cleaned up and folded. There are going to be a lot of happy people who need clothes when we get done. :D

This is a nice idea to donate your unneeded clothes. It's better than throwing them out.

This is a great idea Sintact, and I would join the competition but I regularly clean out my closet and give my unused shoes and clothes to the St Vincent De Paul foundation in Australia and as the holidays just passed it's already cleaned out
but it's a great idea to get more people to do this

Heh, I just did this to my closet, and I am giving it to people in need, along with my parents and sisters clothes too. :D I don't think I can enter the contest though. But this a great idea. Keep up the good work, people! :)

Where I live, about once every 1-2 months, a different charity will have a 'clear out' day, where you can put the clothes, handbags, toys, bedsheets, even toothbrushes in a bag outside your house with the leaflet attached, and the charity will swing by and pick it up! Sometimes you get a thankyou letter back too. It's really helpful, especially when you can't get out to a charity shop or there isn't one near you. :D Not only does it clear out your old clothes, but you're helping somebody else too!

Same here, I also donate my leftover A&F and Aeropostale clothes to the poor.
At least they'll be fashionable. XD

I donate all our old furniture, like tables, chairs, ect, to the community. We also donate most of our clothing to them as well. This is a great idea Sintact, its definitely better then throwing out all your used items.^^

I tend to do this atleast once a month, depending on how much cloths I get. I don't throw out cloths, I tend to donate them. There is a donation place just uptown from where I live, which I find really helpful. We usually drop our unwanted stuff up there, so we go through are stuff if we believe there is stuff that we don't need but are still usable.
