Usually our closets and drawers contain articles of clothing we have not worn in years. As an ongoing spiritual practice, resolve to give one article of clothing to the poor every time you buy or receive a new one. In other words, consider all new clothes as replacements for older clothing. If you cannot commit yourself to this, then perhaps once each season (mark your calendar ahead of time), go through your closets and give something to the poor.
