The Health of It
It’s easy to collect things in our homes. Unfortunately, it’s the collections that can attract pests. Moths and mice love to go through wads of clothes stuffed away in our closets. The dirtier the better for those pests. That’s why Mom was right when she told us to keep our rooms clean and why hiding everything in the closet or under our bed would not pass muster.
The Ease of It
Really every season is a good one to go through those collections and decide what to do with the piles of clothes and junk building in our homes. A minimalist approach is to take those things you didn’t wear in the last season and send them off to the local donation center. Break it up one closet at a time, one season at a time. So in winter, go through your personal closet and pull off the hangers those things you never really wore last year or last summer and fall. In the spring, attack another closet with the same idea. Be sure to have a large bag handy to send it off to a donation center or put out for a garage sale.
Clothes that your children have grown out of should be hauled off as soon as you notice they have moved on to the next size. If you keep the collection, you may find a host of other organisms multiplying under the pile. Next to your dryer, you can keep a paper bag designated for donations. When the clothes go through the laundry room, snag those ones your kids don’t need anymore and deliver the bag as soon as it’s full to the local Good Will or Salvation Army! Don’t worry about your kids needing some clothes. They will let you know when they notice their drawers aren’t so full.
