I can't believe no one mentioned clothing swaps! I purge about every 2-3 months (b/c I'm an avid thrifter and have lots of clothes) and either have a swap or urge a friend to. They all fight over my clothes and then I get to look at theirs. I've gotten some of my favorite items for free from friends and this couldn't make me happier. Then we put everything leftover into bags and donate them.

Though, admittedly, I first take all the current clothing to a "buy, sell, trade" consignment shop and see if I can get any money for my unwanteds. I'm also a vintage clothing nut and take great pieces that don't fit anymore to my favorite vintage shops that I frequent and they let me trade. I've now instated a rule: second-hand clothing only. There are vile practices that go on in the garment industry. So except for under garments from shops I trust I only buy second-hand. This keeps me from buying boutique clothing I really cannot afford anyway.
