Earlier in October, I wrote this post. Sadly, I wasn't able to get to working on it that next weekend, and the weekend after that, we were in Rehoboth Beach - which was FUN, but not conducive to getting anything done at home.
But this past weekend, I did spend some time cleaning out my closet. And I actually got a lot of stuff cleaned up and organized. It's funny - I don't have that much in my "wardrobe" but I also can't spend more than an hour or so on cleaning out/shifting stuff around. But I got quite a bit done anyway. By the time I finished, I had these bags ready to take to the Red Cross donation truck near our house.
Now, I still have some work to do, cleaning out. But the good thing is that once I get started, I become much more committed to getting serious about it. And I realize that a lot of the things I thought might be worth keeping for "someday" are not things I'm ever gonna use/wear. So as I continue this weekend, I won't be keeping the things I kept for no real reason, "just in case." Because I have a tendency to keep things if I feel like there is any possibility in the world that I might wear them, ever. Which doesn't make sense when - if I really think about it - I know I never will.
On the one hand, a lot of my clothes are ones I've had for years, and still wear. The problem is that since I have had them for so long, I have a tendency to be surprised when they actually wear out and need to be replaced. So I'm making a list as I put some things away and get other things out for colder weather of things that are probably on their last legs. Theoretically, that means that I can hopefully replace them before they completely fall apart. Theoretically. ;-)
Anyway, baby steps, but some progress. And at least at the moment, I'm wanting to continue.
