I wrote a post earlier about My Tiny Closet over at The Humor Whacko Blog
Now that the days are getting a little sunnier (like today) a little bit warmer (like yesterday) I'm getting thoughts of cleaning out my clothes closet. These thoughts usually come when I have a ton of laundry to put away.
So here we go with my not teaching anyone a damn thing.
I'm motivated, I'm ready, I walk into the bedroom with a plastic bag for clothing to donate.
I look around mumbling, "why do I have all these clothes"? Okay, let's start here. This pile is not too big.
Picks up the oldest top I own. I can't get rid of this one, I love it. Puts back into the pile.
I think to myself, okay I know what I'll do...go through all my black tops and sweaters. As I look through all fifteen or so assorted black tops, I'm now thinking it's not that bad, besides I love black! Making a note to self to get a brighter light so I can see which is which.
So far my bag is still empty...
Looks over in the far corner at my dresses that are stored in a box. I can't get rid of theseee...I just know I'll fit into them again.
I know what I'll look at my pants. Yup, they are all nicely folded in my bottom drawer.
Shoes maybe?? I toss a pair of Mr. Rose's shoes in the bag. He catches me and I take them out.
After an hour what do you suppose I came out with in my bag to donate? You got it...lots of air.
I really stink at recycling clothes. What's your take on getting rid of stuff?
