I hate to throw anything out. The other day when I was hanging up some jeans and pants I became painfully aware of this. There was no room for the clean clothes.
Right away I decided to try on all my pants and jeans and throw out any that don't fit, are uncomfortable or generally don't look good. I have already filled one garbage bag and I'm not even halfway through.
Once I finish there, I'll tackle my tops. Today, I threw out a sweater that I wore when I was working. It must have been about 8 to 10 years old and quite thin from all those washings. It's not even fit to use as a dust rag. I'm tired of taking clothes out each season, washing them, then putting them away at the end of the season without even wearing them. It will take a lot of effort to get rid of them, but I'll have so much room in my closet.
Just think, then I'll have room for some new clothes. Maybe I'll even incorporate some of the ideas I've gotten from What Not to Wear. I'll make Stacey and Clinton proud.
