Today, I donated the suit that I got married in. Yep, I took it to the secondhand store and walked away.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a nice suit. It still looks nice, but it is dated. It shows what was in style years ago.

It has been years since I actually wore the suit, and it was taking up room in my closet.
