I’m finally back! Nothing against the blog, but work has gotten me extremely busy and it has been hard to find time to write something for the blog. But, I got a day off from work and finally found time to get something together…
My closet is atrocious. For more than one reason.
1. I have too many clothes and shoes. I need to go through them and get rid of some of my things.
2. I don’t have that much floor space because of all the shoes on my floor.
3. Even though I have the most clothes out of all of my roommates, I have the smallest closet. That would be thanks to having the wonderful water heater in my closet. Yeah…
So I took time go through my clothes. I organize my shirts by color, so I took out the shirts by color and went through a process of getting rid of them. My criteria to keep a shirt was: do I like it, is it long enough (I’m tall), does it still fit, and is it still fashionable. I tried each shirt on unless I knew for a fact that it still fit. I also went through dresses, skirts, and tank tops the same way.
I then went through the tee shirts that I own. Now, I am proud to say that I have a very large black tee shirt collection, but I got rid of a few that I know don’t fit or that I don’t wear. I also had some smocks that I had for work before we got new shirts that I was able to get rid of.
Now, the prized possession of my clothing, shoes.
A Mess in my Room
Before I started, I took all the shoes out of my closet and off of my shoe hanger. When I brought them out into my hallway to put on my staircase, I made quite a mess…thankfully I don’t have a downstairs roommate as of the moment, so it’s okay to make a mess.
A Mess in the Hallway
But here are all my shoes. All 60 pairs of them.
So I went through them and was able to take my shoes collection down from 60 pairs to 43. Honestly, I am pretty proud of myself. It is hard for me to get rid of shoes.
I still have a lot of shoes
So, here is everything that I am getting rid of.
And here is what my closet looks like now!
There is actually space that I can walk on the floor and put new clothes in the closet. I have my work shirts separated from my tee shirts so they don’t get lost, and I am able to add new things if needed. What a difference!
Have you gone through your closet and what kind of stuff you have gotten rid of?!
