Over the past few years, my weight has fluctuated drastically, and with it my clothes sizes. My closet is stuffed to the brim with clothes that no longer fit. I can’t bring myself to get rid of them because I love some of the particular pieces of clothing and I use the hope of fitting into them again one day as my motivation. However, in the meantime, my closet is full of clothes that are too big, fit just right, or are too small. I need to do a serious purge.
I’ve heard about the method of putting all the hangers in the closet the wrong way, and once you wear the item turn the hanger the right way, then after a year get rid of all the clothes on hangers that are still facing the wrong way. But that takes a year. And I pretty much know which clothes I’m not wearing already.
I found this pin on Pinterest last night when I should have been asleep (a serious problem of mine), and it helped to give me the kick in the butt I need to actually start cleaning out my closet and getting rid of stuff.
I don’t know why I feel such an emotional attachment to some of the clothes and have had such a hard time until now getting rid of them, but I need to get over it. My closet is a disaster. Maybe it’s because some of the stuff has never even been worn or is in brand new condition, and getting rid of it makes me feel so wasteful. I guess I could try to sell some of the items. I think I’ve seen bloggers doing that right?
Guess what I’m doing this weekend.
