out of the closet

i wear the same clothes everyday. really. every day. same clothes. so then why? why do i have clothes literally EXPLODING out of my closets?? piles of clothes EVERYWHERE! it was killing me. i could feel myself going into shutdown mode.
and its not just my clothes. its everything. somehow, i have way way too much stuff. it feels like i cannot breathe. i think as a culture or generation we just have too much. im POOR and i have TOO much! i need to do a major major de-cluttering of my house.
i started yesterday with my (**ughhhh**) closets. a good friend came over yesterday and helped. she sat on my bed and folded clothes and put them in appropriate piles. i think its hard when your weight is like a roller coaster. i had clothes that were too big, too small, too tight, too old, and clothes that still had price tags on them (mostly because they never fit to begin with). so i got rid of three huge garbage bags full of just my clothes and donated them to goodwill. i also put my "too small clothes" in order of size so i can go through them periodically as i drop pounds. (how optimistic of me!) i really feel soooo much better. now on to the rest of my house!

must feel great to get rid off all those clothes and you've helped others out in the process

I know the feeling! I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago! We don't have a Goodwill, per se, so I brought them to Catholic Charities. They have a little store that's open to the public 3 days a week.

I was so excited! Today, I was able to wear a pair of shorts that I had found hidden away in the back of my closet. They used to be too small, but now they fit! Yay me! lol The sad part is they are still a size 22! ) :

One day at a time, right?!? ( :

Love the new look of your blog! I really need to get rid of some of my stuff, but I cannot seem to party with my expensive clothes even if i`ll never wear it!

I started doing that last weekend but didn't get very far. I hate parting with sentimental clothes or clothes that are perfectly good! For the latter, I did what all the magazines suggest and put them in a box on top of my bookshelf for 6 months... but now they're still sitting there because I'm determined to sell the nicer things on eBay instead of just giving them away. But I haven't gotten around to listing them! I just need more hours in the day...
