I LOVE being organized and simplifying.
Today is the 7th so I thought it was time for a 7 update.
If you haven't read Jen Hatmaker's article,
you might want to click and read.
I have made it to Chapter 2 about Clothes...
I could have written the first few pages myself
because I am really not a big clothes person either.
Don't get me wrong, I like cute clothes
and I like to look cute but I don't really care for shopping
and don't really find what I like all that often.
I also agree with Jen that you would never know that about me
if you looked in my closet or the bins I store
my off season clothes in.
How many of you are like me...
switch out 3-4 bins of winter for summer
and barely wear any of it~
Keep going back to the same outfits over and over
because you love them, they fit well, and are just plain comfortable.
Yesterday I read a great article from Simple Mom
about Creating a Wardrobe that works for you.
That got me brainstorming what needed to happen.
Scott and I have a pretty small closet
so I needed to go through my stuff and follow Hallie's advice.
I took every! single! thing! out of my closet and drawers!
to ask myself the following questions~
- Do I feel comfortable wearing it?
- When was the last time I wore it?
- Does it flatter my unique figure?
- Do I have somewhere to wear it to?
- Do I have something to wear it with?
I even pulled out my summer bins and did the same thing.
Took my whole morning but SO worth it!
(Ended up with 2 piles of clothes)
(and a big pile of shoes)
My littles kept themselves busy with DSs
and SJ even spent time teaching WP how to play~
So how did it turn out???
I was able to fit ALL my clothes back in closet
and dresser drawers.
By all I mean both winter and summer clothes~ WOW!
(except for my shorts~ summer bin in basement)
I now have four bags of things to sell at a yardsale~
and I even rubbed off on Scott
as he started his own give away pile~
(Gotta start somewhere, right?)
Anyone else reading 7 and have thoughts?
