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!

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...
