I don't know about you, but part of why I have such a hard time getting rid of things in my closet is that I have this scarcity mentality that I find hard to shake. Like I can't possibly get rid of something that is clearly out of style because eventually it may come back into style and what if I can't replace it when I want it. That is just utter nonsense and NOT true. Let's get rid of what no longer suits us to streamline the process of finding the clothing that does work for us in the now AND to make room for the wonderful clothing that is surely headed our way.

Click through the gallery I've put together of items in your closet that you need to toss NOW or donate, it's totally okay to donate them if they are still usable.

The ugly ass clothes people (i.e. your mother or abuela) have given you and you keep just in case they ever ask about them and want to see you in them need to get tossed. Buh bye! If your mom or abuela asks, change the subject, start sneezing or scream that you have diarrhea and run to the bathroom.
