This summer, I started a decluttering challenge. I have a year to get rid of 2,000 things.
I had my eyes dead set on my running shirts. When I started running, I was always excited to see what the shirts would look like when I picked up my race packet.
But I've collected quite a few, and it's time to thin the herd. I reasoned I had my medals to remember races.
The first ones to get rid of are the cotton ones. (Well, I kept the free Rock 'N' Roll shirt I got for a virtual 5K.) Cotton isn't the best thing to run in. It does too good of a job collecting sweat and weighing you down.
I kept one long-sleeve shirt, as there are rumors of a winter season here every now and then.
I got rid of my training shirt for Team in Training and the TNT shirt I used for my run with the team. My alum shirt remains.
If you didn't know, you can change your t-shirts into quilts. There are services like Project Repat.
But I'm also getting rid of blankets, so that wouldn't really solve my clutter problem.
So, goodbye "Turtle" shirt and others. It was fun.
What do you do with your old racing shirts? Do you keep most of them?
