With all the talk of clutter clearing these days, many people admit that they feel so much better once it's all done and over with, and I have to agree. With the help of Jp, I went through everything in my closet, tried everything on, showed it to him and looked at in a full length mirror and did our own version of "What Not to Wear" discarding FIVE bags of clothes!
Here they are:
I wanted to quit when I finished my shirts/blouses, he encouraged me to continue.
I wanted to quite when I finished pants/skirts, but he encouraged me to continue.
He helped me bag them up and I took them to the thrift store the next day so there was no going back. I couldn't have done it alone. If you have to do this type of project - I encourage you to get a helper. You've seen all those shows, many of us need someone to support us in our end goal as it's easy to want to change the rules part way through.
My clothes are no longer crammed together making everything wrinkly. And now I can find everything and know that everything fits and looks decent on me. I truly am happy with less choices but I still have lots of clothes!
And we've learned a lesson - most of the clothes came from three stores (!) and I bought many without trying them on, or too quickly. So when it's time to buy I must try it on and I must really, really, really like it - no more "it's all right" clothes.
