Okay, today I had to minimize my inventory of shoes. Thought I was going to have to call the shoe support center. No kidding!! I had a hard time on this one. But I finally just made up my mind. Wanna know how? You can only wear one pair of shoes at the time. I had to decide on functionality, casual dress, casual everyday, spring, summer, winter, fall. Color and style. It was hard. What made it easy was the question, “Have I worn these in the past year?” No? Get rid of them. And I did. Then I had to hurry to get rid of them. And I did. They are gone, the bottom of my closet is back in control and I feel 100% better for doing so. Only one more thing to do, but I have to shop around for a hope chest to be used for a blanket chest. That one more thing is really stuff that I use during the cold months. But have no storage for.
creekscountry doesn't have anything on their life list yet…
How I did it: I made myself a list of 30 pieces of clothing. Keeping in mind my lifestyle. Which happens to be very simple to begin with. I picked out the clothes I wanted to keep on my list and everything else went into a bag for goodwill. That's it, it was that simple. Read how I did it…
I still have to clean out two corners of my bedroom and the bottom of my closet where all my shoes are. I will get it done by this weekend so I can take most of it to the dump.
Then it will be on to my office space. Oh boy, now that will be a challenge.
Today I eliminated 75% of my wardrobe and I have to say that it was very, very easy. Why? Because 75% were clothes that I hung on to for the “just in cases”. LOL
Just in my closet alone I cannot believe the space I have left. I am soooooooooo happy. I have also made myself a promise that for every new piece of wardrobe I acquire, 1 old piece goes out.
I feel so relieved and free. I can tell you that what I have left in my closet are clothes that I always wear. Always. I sure hope that doing something like this will be as easy for others.
My next goal? My dresser and vanity. That will be tomorrow.
