Living and Learning in the Pacific Northwest
This is what I ended up with: 1 jammie top, 4 jammie pants, 3 jeans that fit, 2 jeans too big, 6 t-shirts, 3 capri pants, 3 shorts (2 jean, 1 athletic), 3 pullover sweaters, 3 sweater jackets, 3 zipper hoodies, 1 athletic hoodie, 3 nice skirts, 2 dirt skirts, 6 casual tops, 3 dressy tops, 6 tank tops, 2 robes (1 heavy and 1 light), 1 polar fleece jacket, 1 jean jacket, 1 heavy jacket, and plenty of unmentionables. I could probably cut back further but I’ll see how this goes.
Bulk-wise, we donated a third to half of my clothing.
I also went through the boys’ clothes and now their clothes easily fit in each of their dressers. I donated one big laundry basket of their clothes (some outgrown and some were just too many). We also donated two big boxes of books and a big box of games today.
While I sorted and boxed, Kelly entered it all into Turbo Tax It’s Deductible. He came up with a total of $650 in donations. It’s Deductible has a standard deduction for common items.
Pretty good for half a day’s work.
