As many of you are aware, I really do practice what I preach. Today’s installment of small space stories focuses on reviewing my wardrobe to determine what can be donated, a practice I teach my clients to conduct on a regular basis in order to keep their closet organized and clutter-free.
Here’s what ended up in the donate pile:
One jeans skirt that I haven’t worn since last spring.
One black pencil skirt that I haven’t worn since I worked at SCAD two years ago (gasp!).
Two casual dresses I used to wear ALL the time in the winter with tights and boots, but haven’t worn since last winter.
One dressy shirt that I love, but it looks like maternity wear. Since I’m not pregnant, I think I’d best let it go.
One tunic shirt that I haven’t worn since last spring. Also not flattering.
One long sleeve shirt that is too short in the waist.
One sweater I haven’t worn since last winter.
One pair of boots I haven’t worn since last winter.
Two pairs of tights I haven’t worn since last winter.
So as you can see, the theme is this:
1) I haven’t worn the item in a year, and/or
2) the item isn’t flattering on me, and/or
3) the item doesn’t fit me properly.
These items went straight into a paper bag that I labeled for donation and then into my trunk to take to Lost-n-Found Thrift when I’m close to the center.
I feel lighter and freer, and space opened up in my closet!
