Ok so I have a wardrobe full of old clothes that i've either, out grown their style, or they are too small and no longer fit me.

The thing is there is too many of them and I don't know what to do with them.

What do you people do?

Throw them out if they don't fit you or not wear them anymore or better give them to poor people.

I usually donate the clothes that don't fit anymore or use worn out clothes at the gym.

Use them as j!zz rags...

or donate them:P In my area they have these bins you can drop them off in and sometimes they leave a plastic bag on the front porch to be filled and picked up later. Salvation Army is a good option if you don't have those other things.

I put them in the fireplace in the winter when it gets too cold.

I donate them. I like how that's not an option, like some kind of douche made the poll.

It all depends on the condition of the clothes. If they are all holey and stained, they go into the trash, if they are in decent shape, I take them to the second hand store.

And yes, donating them should have been a poll option.

Give them to your local charity shop. I can't stand throwing out something that others could use.

I clean them, keep the rags for rags (can always use good rags for cleaning - old tshirts are great for washing and wipping down the car). Turn the good ones in to the Salvation Army or Purple Heart (they will pick up). You do a good deed and can write off the contribution when tax time comes.

Donate them. No need to throw them away if people going through struggles can use them.

Edit: Donation isn't in the poll? Step your life game up Dr.Pickle.

Mostly donate. If there's a shirt I just can't let go of for some reason, I throw it in a box in the garage.

If they still look nice then I donate them or give them to my little sister. If they have holes and weird stains in them, I throw them away.

Put em in a big box. Then, the wife sends them to the Philippines to be redistributed among her poorer relatives. That goes for many things: old laptops and PCs, old camcorders and other electronics, etc

Most of my old clothes still fit so I wear them until they disintegrate into dust. The other day I wore a dress shirt to work that I had since I was 10.

I still have old tshirts that I've had since 2000. I also still have an old black tshirt of Lord of the Rings since 2002 and it still fits.

Donate them! :) Things that no longer fit me are a perfect fit for someone who needs them. I try to take care of my things as well so I hope they can actually use it when they get it ^^

@the people that say they throw out clothes: I don't know if it's the same in the US but here in the UK charities can still get money from those clothes that you throw out. They sell them as rags to companies who can recycle them, so unless something is covered in bleach you can still donate them for the good of mankind (that is if there is any good left).

If they're truly spoilt with paint or just wear then they go in trash or find an alternative use, if they're too small or have shrunk in the wash or I don't them then I get a new home for them. Saves waste and helps people out so it's two for one.

If they're in good condition, donate them either to a thrift store or a place where people in need can wear them. If they're not in good clean wearable condition (I sleep in baggy men's tee shirts that eventually get stained or ripped or otherwise not fit for wearing out), they get reused. I cut them into rags, or knot them into toys for the farm dogs and my cat. If they're still in good condition definitely donate them, there are a lot of kids who have completely outgrown their clothes but their parents cannot afford to buy them new ones. Or can afford it, but would rather spend that money on booze and cigarettes or whatever because they're the kind of people who shouldn't have kids. Any clothes are better than clothes that don't fit for underprivileged kids.
