I'm finally making a real dent in the amount of clothes left in the apartment.
On Saturday we took a bag full of old clothes to be recycled at the local farmer's market textile recycling bin and then went to Salvation Army to donate a bag of good clothes.
Yesterday (Monday) we took a cab to the Salvation Army to drop off 3 tall white kitchen trash bags full of donation clothes I sorted and washed on Sunday. We live close to a mile from the shop so that would have been much to walk it all the way there. I'll take smaller loads on foot from now on.
Another bag was taken to the cleaners today.
Other than that I've been doing a lot of pulling out of miscellaneous items stored in the closets, under chairs, in drawers, etc. and going through them. Most items are getting tossed.
It was fun to leave an old radio/ipod player on top of the outdoor garbage bins to find it taken by a passerby within minutes. Also left decorative storage baskets outside the apartment building that were taken quickly.
Today I go through another big bin of clothes. I'm almost at the finish line as far as this clothes sorting goes.
Thanks to Marie Kondo's book "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" (recommended to me by @DivineFits) I can say I no longer have "hoarding tendencies" but am a reformed holder-on-er-of-memories in physical form.
