Out with the Old, or the too small...

I've been at it again!  Sometimes I wonder just how can I possible have this much unused stuff in my home.  Funny thing is that sometime last year I looked over these same items and thought I would use it and I have not.  So, this past weekend, I literally drug every piece of clothing out out every nook and crannie and made a decision.


In the end I was left with a very modest amount of clothing.  And I do truly mean a modest amount.  Now, it feels odd that I don't have too many complete outfits.  I've always had a problems finding the right bottoms to match the easy-to-find tops, but at least now I can shop with intention.  Shop knowing that I really need something specific.

I did take 5 bags of clothes to a local donation center and I have a small pile that I will try to sell or consign.  And guess what?  I feel like I can breathe just a bit better.

When's the last time you cleaned your closets?

  1. I need to do the same. I always do what you said you did. Tuck things back in my closet and say that I will wear it next year.

  2. I need to go through things also here. I'm always being told that I need to get rid of things that I've had for years and get something new. If I would only listen. : )

  3. It feels so good to purge like this. Especially when you are donating clothing which will be much appreciated by others! I know that feeling of being able to breathe again after cleaning out stuff.!

  5. Definitely need to do this too. I bet it feels great to be rid of so many unworn clothing.

  6. I try to go through things on a fairly regular basis. It makes me unreasonably happy to get rid of stuff. (So why do I get so much stuff in the first place?) Good job on the purging. Now good luck getting a few new things!
