Yesterday, I officially hit the 60 pound weight loss mark. I decided to celebrate by a much needed cleaning and purging of my clothing closet. Our house is really small and unfortunately, our bedroom becomes the “catch all” for any item that doesn’t have a place. It was time to clear things to make room for living space.
I began by evacuating the luggage and crafting items that were cluttering the closet floor. Once I could finally enter, I stripped down to underthings, and began trying clothing on. My daughter, who has decided to purchase a booth at a local outdoor flea market this weekend, waited, with baited breath, for me to place my rejected jeans, tops, skirts, and dresses in her open garbage bags for selling. Eight trash bags later, I had more than enough room to begin hanging up my clothing that actually fits. This didn’t take long. My clothing inventory is as follows: 5 tee-shirts, 5 tank-tops, 1 pair of white capris, 3 pairs of shorts (two of which are khaki), 10 summer cardigans of various colors (I get cold easily), 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 1 pair of jeans that are a little too big. I have more closet space than I’ve ever had in my life. I also have zero winter clothing. It feels so good to have what I consider so few clothing items and it certainly saves time on my morning quest of choosing what to wear. Since the weather has been fairly hot, my usual choice is shorts, and most often my khaki ones. So if you’re trying to find me in a crowd, I’ll most likely be the healthy-looking blond in the khaki shorts! 🙂
How are your closets looking? Do you own a bunch of clothing, or are you happy with just the basics?
