Minimalism Tutorial Video: The T-Shirt Collection

What is it about T-Shirts that makes them nearly impossible to donate?  It’s almost like they’re woven of 100% pure emotional attachment. I break it down for you in my latest minimalism tutorial video where I tell the tales of the beloved T-shirts that I finally put in the donations bag. You’ll perhaps be pleased to know that I fell victim to a common decluttering pitfall: don’t try on anything you considering donating!  (In the video I’m wearing the one that returned to my drawer). 

Watch the video below.  Click here to watch the entire series.

Have a few t-shirts that you haven’t worn in ages?  What are you reasons for keeping them?  Are you REALLY going to make a quilt out of them??? Really? Can you list a few that you’ll drop in the donations bag this week?  Please share in the comments.
