First, I want to thank each and every one of you who helped me start off my spring cleaning by giving me that push to get rid of some items that have been lurking in my closet for way too long. (Things from high school, over 20 years ago…Wow!) (Thanks especially to The Dose of Reality, A Happier Girl, Chris Carter of the Mom Cafe, Jacklynn of the MamaMama, Cathi, Susie of Homemaker-Mom, Ginny Marie of Lemon Drop Pie, and Single Mom in the South for your comment help!)
I took the advice from those who commented on that post, and it all got donated.
Not only that, but you helped jump start a HUGE clean out of the closet. I tried on over 20 pair of dress pants that I haven’t worn since teaching, pulled out sweaters that have seen better days, and even found a blue velvet dress in the way back of the closet that, let’s face it, is never getting worn again.
Well, maybe it will be worn again… Just not by me!My daughter found the dress, and fell in love with it. It’s the perfect length for dress up, so it is actually going to stick around, just not on a hanger in my closet.
I also found a black poncho. Are those things still popular?
All said and done, A LOT of stuff left my closet. Nine pair of pants, 5 sweaters, various shirts, all the items from my last post, and a couple pair of shorts that were in a storage bag in there.Yes, that is a pair of elastic waist pants there and some plaid ones that my sister said I should only wear if I play golf. (Another reason I’m thankful to talk to my sister on the phone, she has better fashion sense than I do!) Oh, and don’t you just love the black and white, silky, paisley blouse? Yeah….
Notice that box on the shelf in the corner? That has my wedding dress… Maybe it will be worn again in another 20 or so years….
When’s the last time you went through your closet?
