My wardrobe is what most people would consider slightly excessive. I own a lot of clothes. And handbags. And shoes. I purge my closet two times a year, throwing out what Im sure I wont wear again. But I often have a dilemma when donating. I wonder, does my disdain for an item really have merit. Would someone else see treasure where I see trash? Donating is great, but when it comes to old footwear, I only donate old shoes that I bought and never wore much for whatever reason....we all have some of those! I do think that shoes are something we have to be very careful about donating. OMG, those 17!!!!! year old leather boots have been sitting for about 10 years on the bottom of my closet.Lollol ...you must see them:

Arrghh, they look like old pointy toe'd high top golashes and alone the germs ...Ewwwww!!! I think it's common sense to donate lightly worn shoes in excellent condition. Our church actually takes donations yearly that go to children in Mexico who literally do not own shoes. So, yeah, I definitely donate there. But, old, worn, impractical shoes? Nope. They're not worth the effort or cost it would take someone else to sort through them! From I understand the waste bill of those places is already huge enough. And while I do a lot of clothing donations, those 17 years old boots went into the big black garbage bag and I dropped a pile of waste on top. They had no worth ...not even a penny for recyclers. Im generally not a squeamish person, but I think after 17 years those boots were unhygienic stuff. In this case ...these old leather boots were domestic waste and NOT donation items. Do you agree with me in the case of those old boots? Just serious answers, please :)

God bless
Chrissy
