I work in retail, so I find cute clothes all the time. Unfortunately, if it's a deal too good to pass up, I buy it, even if it's not my size. I have about two storage bins worth of clothing that I have never worn! But I keep it all because it motivates me and I have tons of clothing to choose from when I slim down. I have gotten rid of all of my bigger clothing. I am NEVER going back to a size 24!

About 3/4 of my closet is various levels of too small for me. I have sizes 14-22... I currently wear a solid 22. So I shouldn't need to buy new clothes for quite some time (but I'll buy some, just for funzies).

ETA- Oh, and there's an item or two that I bought too small as motivation

I feel this way as well. But I can say that last time I lost weight and got into all my old clothes, my first thought was "Yay! they fit!" My second thought was "Gosh, these are ugly!" Between style changes (even in what I thought were simple classic items) and my body just being a different shape than the last time I wore that size, I actually kept and wore very little of it. It was still fun to do my old clothes fashion show though!

I have a pair of pants that the last time I wore them I was like 12..lol
High school was when I started thinking about my weight, and back then I decided to keep those pants to one day fit in them again.

I still don't fit in them yet, but I'm still a lot closer to fitting in them again, than I was in high school!
