Things just got real

Saturday, May 09, 2015

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!

    Bemused, that is so wonderful! It must be a marvelous feeling to see your closet all cleaned up, organized, and containing only "skinny" clothes!

    I know what you mean about not being frugal. I have bought so many clothes in search of something that looks good, always thinking some new thing that I haven't tried before might make me feel confident. But the only thing that'll work, I've always known deep down, is to do what you did--which is to whittle myself down to a smaller size. I'm tired of pants!! I am not at all surprised to hear that you found at least 25 pairs of pants, all too large. I've got oodles of pants! And now that clingy dresses are in style, I am way OUT of style.

    But I'm not complaining. Ever since sitting on that uncomfortable sofa watching Mari get her photos done in that kimono a couple of days ago, in a room chock full of mirrors, I have been doing really well and am filled with a LOT of motivation!

    Enjoy your beautiful closet and the treasures you found there!
