When I see homes of couples with the entire bedroom closet, spanning the wall, devoted to just one person, it makes me think, 'Wow'. Hubs and I each have a 2-door, 2-drawer IKEA wardrobe. Earlier this year, I started to feel the clutter.
Most clothes were not fitting me, and they were from the 20-something-year-old Me. Truthfully, I also felt the need to start dressing my age. Plus, I eat like a teenager and will not exercise.
April this year saw Phase 1 of the wardrobe downsize.
That first step of parting with pieces of clothing was difficult. For one, there were pieces I've kept for sentimental reason. Secondly, they are in perfectly great shape, and for some, I've only worn it once! Thirdly, where will they end up? But it had to be done, and thankfully, there are donation and recycling bins for textile and clothing.
In reviewing the clothing, the obvious first question was to ask, 'Does it still fit?'
If it didn't fit, it definitely won't tomorrow, next month, or the mid-30's Me next year.
