Even though I’m still suffering from this horrendous cold/virus invasion, I have committed to cleaning out our closet in the master bedroom. I don’t have a lot of clothes because I rarely wander from my house. I do however have lots of jammies and comfortable things to wear but not a lot of things that take up space in the walk-in closet. When I still worked, I was lucky enough to wear a uniform everyday, so I never got into buying clothes and never was much of a fashionista.
I started by going through my small collection of t-shirts and sweat shirts, purses and shoes and got a nice amount to donate to the local women’s shelter.
I had two large plastic bins filled with old pictures, school photos, report cards and too many school papers I saved from my kids. I managed to consolidate all of it into one container.
The biggest chore still to tackle is my Husband’s stuff. He really could qualify for an episode of “Hoarders” He saves
all kinds of shit everything, and claims everything has sentimental value.
Joe’s waist size was 31 inches when we got married. 25 years later his waist size is 32 inches. So, he doesn’t have fat clothes, and clothes that he might fit in after his next diet. He just has a lot of everything. I told him this evening that he has to go through everything and get rid of A LOT….he laughed.
Slowly but surely I will get this task completed. Maybe I can sneak one item a week out of the closet, and in a few years it will be organized and clean!
