Cleaning Out My Closet

After clearing out my nail polish, another easy place to start was my closet. I will openly admit that I love clothes. I do regularly get rid of things that I know I’ll never wear again, but I would definitely hang on to way more than I needed to.  Today’s rule was, “if I wouldn’t want to wear it today (or in six months when it’s cold), it’s going.” So a lot went. Three garbage-bags worth.

14 dresses, 7 skirts, 11 pairs of pants/shorts, 4 sweaters and 3 blazers:1

10 tops, 1 more skirt and 11 tees/tanks:2

 7 sweatshirts:

Makes for a lot of stuff!  My sister took about half of the clothes-the big gift bag and the small tote.

I can’t tell you how exciting it is to get rid of stuff!  You know that high you get when you buy something new?  It’s the same when you get rid of stuff, I swear. I neglected to take a picture of my half-empty closet, but looking at it makes me feel great.

I think next up, I will tackle my gowns. (Yes, I have gowns. In another life I was a professional musician)

  1. It does feel good! I find that clothes are easy to sort. It is the mementos of family life that are hard to go through and pitch. I have been scanning letters and pictures (of course) to keep on the computer.
