Letting go of my work wardrobe

Since I retired, I no longer need many of the clothes I used to wear to work. I am having a very, very hard time letting go of anything! I have entirely too many clothes, some I haven't worn in a couple of years. Yet I just cannot get rid of them. I have hung some that I "might" get rid of on a rack. Every time I go by it, I think of outfits to create, then they go back in the closet and still do not get worn.

What is wrong with me? Why do I have such a hard time letting go of clothes I do not need or wear? I am sure it must be some deep seated psychological issue that I have yet to figure out.

I have been packing up some things to get them out of the way and out of my sight. I think that if I do not see them at all for a while it will not be so hard to let go.

Even if I were to lose enough weight to make them unwearable, I would probably still want to keep everything "just in case."

Anyone else have trouble getting rid of clothing and shoes?
