Anywho, the challenge of cleaning out our closets is a really daunting one. It's a problem of two 'but's:
But I paid good money for this...but I used to like it...but I may want it someday...but it belonged to a relative...but I'll never find another one like it again...you get the picture.
Put these two things together and what do you get? A girl who stands in front of her closet and can't bear to get rid of much. How do we fight this? I'm fighting it by taking it one single item at a time. For the next few weeks let's see if I can find one item from my closet each Friday to get rid of. You can try it too. Just one. No biggie, right?
I hope so. Because I just got rid of the last of the "easy" discards, the pieces of clothing that were no challenge for me to toss.
Today's photos are the last 'easy' items to discard. I'm only counting prices on the items I never should've bought. Top photo: 1 scarf (free), one winter headband (free), one pair of heels ($15), three shirts (three free, one on permanent loan from a friend who lives in Spain), one pair of shorts ($10), one baseball cap ($10), one pair of dancing shoes (used these, so they were worth the money). Bottom photo: one sweater ($20), one pair of shorts ($10), one turtleneck (I wore it, it's just worn out), one pair of too-large pants (but I did wear these), one skirt (permanently on loan from a friend who lives in Japan.)
Okay, and while I'm at it, I should stop stealing clothes from my girlfriends. Especially the ones who live abroad.
Items 115-128: A ton of clothes.
Fate: One of those Planet Aid dumpsters.
Money wasted on junk I never should've bought: $1262.00
