Operation Clearout, pt.2

A pile of clothes lying on a bed, and an over-stuffed laundry basket. Three suits hang by the window.

The Great Clear-out™ continued apace this morning with my wardrobe and drawers being utterly decimated. Most of my old clothes will have to go to the great landfill in the earth, but a few can be salvaged and sent to feed the unclothed of Corstorphine.

Here’s what I’m getting rid of:

27 t-shirts
7 shirts
2 clerical shirts
3 trousers
2 shorts
3 Scotland Rugby Union replica shirts
7 jumpers
2 pairs of shoes
2 pairs of trainers
2 black suits
1 black suit jacket (no trousers)
2 coats

This afternoon we tackle Jane’s books and our overstretched videos collection, as well as somehow transport my mountain of clothing to either the bin or the local clothing bank.

I love playing Win it or Bin it™.

  1. wow, perhaps a slightly weird question, but is the pile of laundry designed to look like a puppet sporting a red head dress and snazzy gold moustache?!
    it was the 1st thing i saw in that picture, but my brother has now just said i have issues and clearly need my sleep!

    can anyone else see him, or is it really just me…?!
