How to Know When It's Time to Clean Out Your Closet

Just in case you have ever wondered if there was a fool-proof way to know that it's time to clean out your closet and/or update your wardrobe, I have provided this guideline below:
  • You're sorting through your clothes closet, reorganizing some purses and articles of clothing
  • Your 5 year old is by your side "helping" you
  • You come across a skirt you haven't worn in quite a few years
  • With a critical eye, you debate whether to keep it or donate
  • Your 5 year old asks you if that was the skirt you wore when you were a grandma

Yes, this is a sure sign that this article of clothing is ready to go to Goodwill.

For the record, after a quick glance in the mirror to see if I had any extra gray hair or wrinkles, I assured my daughter that I have NEVER been a grandma. I'm taking the donation box to Goodwill right after I'm done playing BINGO.
