Challenge # 1......






I decided the first thing I would tackle in this new year would be my closet, and all my drawers, and the guest room closet, and the guest room drawers...lolol...where a decades worth of no longer loved clothes could be found. My hubby did his Sunday while I was at work, and he got a whole huge trash bag of stuff cleared out of his side of the closet, and I said SEE..that why we have no room. BUT when I finished my stuff, I have 4 bags of stuff! Can you believe it....lol...I found 3, yes 3, denim jumpers that I used to live in...15 YEARS AGO!!!!!!!! I found stuff I would not be caught dead in, then why has it been taking up space for YEARS!!!! So if you read my previous post you know my word for 2010 is Challenge, and this is my first Challenge completed, PURGE the closet and the drawers!!!! DONE!!!!!! now I just have to clean up the remaining mess, take all those bags to the thrift store, and relish in the accomplishment.....there are still a couple of those long dresses I cannot part with, not sure why..do you all have things you hold onto without rhyme or reason????? at any rate.....check one goal off the list.....and let me know what YOU hold onto for no good reason....and Im NOT talking about your hubbys.....lolololololol

GREAT job!!! I have a closet (plus a few drawers and totes) of all the "skinny" clothes that I USED to fit in "BB" (before Baby). My baby is going to be 5 this year. But I'm NOT parting with them. I WILL fit into them someday. Hopefully that day will be soon.

I was reading your post and thinking to myself "Oh no, I have to do that too". Must be nice to be able to see everything that is in the wardrobe. I can't see half the stuff I have in mine because it is all jammed in so tight.

when I read your post the other day I decided it was time to let go of clothes that are just taking up space in the wardrobe...I have a range of sizes even though I know I will never fit into some of the smaller ones again...time to get real!! ...and this weekend it will happen....I cleaned out the drawers last weekend and got a garbage bag full .... I am thinking at least three or four garbage bags of clothes! will let you know how I go.....!

Well done Debbie,
It must feel so good to have such a tidy closet again. We have been busy this fall cleaning out the basement of our house so that we have more useable space. While it is not perfect and there is more work to do, it is much better than it was before we started this process. It makes me feel better when I look at the space and I am sure that it is the same for you.
I do know what you mean about keeping a few pieces of clothing that I have a sentimental attachment.
Regards,
Anna
