    I've traveled with throw away clothes before. Especially on long trips where I want to
    free up space in my suitcase, for stuff to bring home.

    My throwaway clothes are older clothes I could Donate..... but Pack, Wear, and Discard after worn.
    I don't bring them home.

    So in these times.... I'm wondering if anyone else is thinking about bringing throwaway clothes
    on their trip?

    I was actually just thinking about this today! If we end up going in a couple weeks, I just may do this. I have a big bag ready for Goodwill, so I’ll just grab something out of there.

    Yes! I do this with with old pajamas. I also recently started packing a pair of dress pants for a fancy dinner, and then tossing them because I quit my corporate job to work at a start up and I will never need to wear traditional work clothes again.

    I have done that in the past---older underwear and night clothes that I don't care if they come home with me.

    It never occurred to me to carry clothes to a destination just to discard them. Can't see actually packing something, knowing it's a one way trip. Once they don't make the wearable cut, Salvation Army / Goodwill gets a bag.

    There have been a few items that needed to retired, but generally, no.

    We rarely bring anything home - wife might get an outfit or two. But we don't shop in Vegas. We have all the stores at home.

    We do a carryon each and usually have some room to put in some stuff - including some "good stuff" we can not get at home.

    I've left plenty of clothes in Vegas, but never intentionally... Joys of drunk packing in my late 20s :D

    This idea has been around a while. I think they call these clothes Depends.

    Yep. I always wear an old shirt for the flight out. I have a coat on for the February flight anyway, and I can change into a fresh shirt at the car rental center.

    I have a friend who does this. Wears it then throws it out. She likes to bring home other stuff. :)

    We donate all our old clothes to a homeless shelter and a shelter for the mentally ill . My wife's hospital also collects donations and disperses to charities. I wouldn't pack clothes for a one way trip as they would already be in the donation bag if I didn't intend to wear them again.

    Not sure I could justify doing this as I have hardly any clothes to begin with lol. My wife thinks I'm nuts for not spending more money on new clothes, but she stopped laughing when I bought a significant amount of stock during the market lows of March this year and saw how that played out ;).

    I shop for clothes at church rummage sales so I don’t wear anything worth more than 5 bucks. I’d never leave anything behind on purpose. Too wasteful.

    Donated clothing falls into three main categories: stuff to be sold in the thrift shop, clothing that’s packed up and sold overseas, and finally clothing recycled for rag material. I donate everything I’m done with except underwear, and quite a few old pairs have been designated for the one-way trip to Vegas.

    Never even crossed my mind because when I go to LV I like to wear my 'good' Harley Davidson clothing. And, believe me, they are not cheap so I would never even consider throwing them away. The stuff that I don't wear anymore and are in the 'donate' pile are there for a reason...because I don't wear them anymore or maybe even like them anymore.

    I've never thought about taking throw-away clothes on a trip. LOL Although, I've purposely packed less clothes on some trips so I would have some extra space for stuff that I might buy during my trip. If I happen to need something that I didn't bring, I could always buy it at my destination.

    Haha I couldn't do it on a Vegas trip, those are always my favorite ones.

    I found the best thing for me to do with clothes I don't wear too often is to take them out to the halfway house for the guys getting out of prison. One less thing for them to have to worry about when they are trying to save up for a place to live or pay off court costs or fines so they can get their driver's license. A collared shirt or polo and khakis can go a long way for those fellas when they are looking for a job too. Haha I keep our local cons looking fresh.

    I've done this in the past for items such as socks with holes in them :ssst: But not for anything else. Esp that I usually buy new clothing for any trips.
