Do you purge your closet?

Do you purge your closet and if so, how often? And do you give your unwanted clothes to family members/friends, sell them, or donate them? I usually purge once every couple of years and donate them to Salvation Army or a homeless shelter. Lately when I do shop I try to buy classic pieces (rather than trendy) so the clothing lasts me longer.

I go through my closet every year and get rid of clothes that I'm tired off or haven't worn in awhile and give them to a second hand store ,also when I buy something new I come home and get rid of something just so I don't end up with too much clothes

I'm so bad for holding onto clothes. I have clothes that are 10 years old or more! Usually I give them to my one friend and clothing that wouldn't work for her I give to the clothing bank. I only do that once every year or two though.

I go through the my closet once a year too, with intentions to purge things. I usually end up only getting rid of a couple thing even though I have clothing that I haven't worn in years.

I do it once a year or more but my closet is still full so I would have to do a real serious purging and get rid of stuff that has been there for years and looks really awful on me . I give it to the local Church , they have rummage sales or to second hand stores

I recently moved across the country so I had to do a big purge of clothing in the process. I usually clean out my closet every few months and donate everything to Salvation Army (I'm not a fan of Value Village) or try to sell the nicer pieces on Kijiji or other Facebook pages.
There was a time when I still lived at my parents where I collected so much clothing that I was able to donate a full garbage of clothing and accessories every year.

I clean/organize my closet twice a year with the intention to purge. But that never goes as plan since I have the tendency to keep everything, it's such a bad habit.

I'm doing mine right now. As I'm loe on money right now I'm selling the good stuff and donating the not perfect but still good to a women's shelter.

I plead with people not to donate to the Salvation Army who are extremely anti-gay. If you don't support anti-gay sentiment please consider donating to a local women's shelter or alternative charity instead, thanks.

I'd say every 4 or 5 months I go through all my clothes and discard those that are just done, and donate those to a local "Buy Nothing" group on FB that still have life in them. I can usually get rid of a shopping bag or two worth. I'm also not really replacing what I give away, so it's nice to see the closet dwindling (yet I still have lots of clothes to wear to work).
