Now half his wardrobe would be amazing, never gonna happen though.
Awesome! Even just one pair of pants, when it was totally him- that's very exciting.

Well in five years we added two more DS and a DD, and the boys needed their closet! Which meant we needed to share the closet in our room. For a few moments, I thought this might be the end of our marriage but he amazed me by donating more that 10 garbage bags worth of stuff! And we have been sharing a closet for six months now. He still has way more stuff than me, but I am so impressed and proud of him! And it is so much easier for him to keep his side of the closet tidy.
Holy cow- that is incredible! Sweet!

And I agree with elizabeth.scalf that my husband responds well to specific suggestions. Actually, one thing that has helped us both is really thinking about how well an item fits us, how good we look in it, and how we feel in it. If it's not a 9 or a 10 for us both- it's gone. Why would we keep clothes that don't flatter us? It's also nice for us knowing we like how we look, (& no searching for clothes that make us feel good), and knowing our spouse finds us attractive in a given outfit...

These are awesome stories, ladies. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome! My DH is still pretty resistant & doesn't understand what I'm talking about when I say he should get rid of clothing that is worn out or doesn't fit.
