Things just got real

Tonight I spent three hours pruning my closet. I'm not sure pruning is the right word - I *decimated* my closet.
I filled 6 tall kitchen bags full of clothes to be donated. There are at least 25 pairs of pants, all now too large. And lots of billowy tops which were not flattering but did a good job of covering me up. Those are all in bags now as well.
But I found treasures too: a few pair of old capris that I can fit again. Lots of tops that I had squirreled away because they were too small, and now they miraculously fit again. My summer wardrobe is set!
I learned something about myself. I am not as frugal as I thought. I mean, *someone* bought all those clothes in those bags!
Sometime before or after soccer games this weekend, we will drop off the bags at a nonprofit. And I will be fully committed to my new dimensions. I didn't keep a single pair of "fat pants" so I hope that will be extra motivation to stick to plan!
