They say it takes 21 days of doing something for it to become a habit. So, I'm good now, right? Just to be sure, let's make today a BIG day.
I'd originally planned to take it slow and purge a few items of clothing each week... but I'm not the post patient person. Yesterday, I spent a few minutes rearranging my closet so that all "like" items were together - skirts with skirts, dresses with dresses, t-shirts with t-shirts. Wow, do I have a LOT of t-shirts! So, I started there this morning:
That's 19! t-shirts, a hood sweatshirt and a couple dressier shirts that drive me nuts with the static (natural fibers, people!). Then I added four pair of khaki pants:
Yeah, all those plastic hangers went in the bag too. =)
And finally, the shoes took a big hit:
Seriously, I work from home now and if I even have shoes on, they're usually slippers. heh I really don't need so many choices anyway. I learned that lesson from traveling for so long. I got to where I wore a pair of tennis shoes and packed 1 pr of dress shoes, two max. A lot of these are very cheap and not-so-comfortable. Now, they can hurt someone else's feet. =) Not sure how I missed those two small purses before, but they're gone now too. I guess it's time for another trip to Goodwill!
What's lurking in your closet that shouldn't be there?
