One big goal of mine for 2012 is to be more organized! I decided I should start with my clothes. Not realizing the project at hand was going to take me 5 hours. I could not believe that amount of clothes I had. I have problem when it comes to throwing or giving clothes away. Most of the items in my closet were things I wore as a teenager and just couldn't part with. I would tell myself that I one day I fit into those size 0 jeans I wore when I was 16, my husband was laughing pretty hard at me as I tried on each piece to make sure it didn't fit. I had the hardest time letting go of these clothes!
I felt like a crazy clothes hoarder, I mean who keeps 10 pairs of jeans that are 3 sizes too small and 7 years old? Coming to terms that I was never going to wear over half these items made it much easier to discard them. I was even able to give several shirts, hats, and belts to my niece, at least I know she will take care of them! Most of the clothes I had were donated to some local needy families, and that also made me feel better! After hours of sorting, I got rid of 3 contractor size garbage bags full of clothes!! Both my dresser and closet can breathe a little easier in their new found space!
Am I the only one who has this problem? I would love to know if anyone else has a similar issue!
