Closet Project

As I was dropping ecards last week I came across a post about cleaning your closet. It said to start by emptying the closet then put back the things that you truly like and wear all the time. Next you start going through the rest and decide to sell at a resale shop, give to your favorite charity or toss.
Before

Totally empty


Yup….lots of room for new cloths hehe.


So that’s exactly what I did. I was showing MM after I was finished and he said “looks like you’re going shopping”. I said “yup”. I got rid of so much stuff that I don’t like and hardly ever wear – it was just taking up space. Next I have to do this with the dresser drawers. They are packed and I have nothing to wear. There’s something wrong with that.

Are you doing anything special for Spring cleaning?

Looks good! I have been busy nesting and my drawers and closets have never looked cleaner. I didn't get rid of anything yet, because I don't know what will fit post-baby. And I am gonna keep the big stuff for when we have #2. Shannon

We have been full time RVers for the past 9 years. Costumes and Clowning Games, puppets, face painting equipment, magic props take up a lot of space.
Fluffy made the rule that anything she hasn't worn in a year gets thrown out. I am down to one outfit!
What is a Clown to do?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

b boys mom.... you don't want me to come over there.... I was in a throwing mood and I got rid of almost everything. But then again we could go shopping.

Gosh, your closet looks just like mine with the closet organizers. I actually try and clean my closet out once a year due to space restrictions. Though this year I didn't have much to give away.

I love this idea! My closets are overflowing with thing we don't wear. Hopefully I can get morivated to do this in the near future!

Oh, and thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting today. I appreciate your point of view :)

WOW! First of all, I love your closet! Second, WOW! You did quite a job there!
I have trouble getting rid of clothes that I no longer wear. Why do we hang on to stuff?!

Silly Willy & Fluffy.. we too are rver's, but not full time. It is hard to take everything you want- no question.

Lynn.. As you can see I too have trouble getting rid of stuff otherwise I wouldn't have accumulated so much. For me it was 'I might be that size again' or the emotional connection of where I wore something. I've come to the conclusion that if I get to that size again... the item won't be in style and besides I would deserve something new.

I love cleaning out old stuff! You do have to be in the right mood tho - otherwise, you just can't part with anything! ;-) Glad you were in a "throwing" mood!

This is AWESOME!!! It's said to also be good for your mental health, karma, feng shui, etc. Job well done! I have been wearing the same 10 things for the last 18 months, living in the trailer. Now the house is almost done and I get to see my "real" clothes again when we move in!! That will be so fun. Hope some of them still fit. -- Bonnie
