Aug 20, 2009I started the serious closet clean out yesterday. I started with the shoes...now to really appreciate where we begin, you have to understand that I am a collector of shoes, not fine shoes mind you, but I love shoes. Probably comes from a lifetime of shopping for clothes that don't fit..but shoes more often do. I am confident that if you counted my flip flops, I would have in excess of 50 pair. New shoes I bought earlier this week were a half size smaller and many of my previous shoes were wides... Gone now are more than HALF of my shoe collections and all but one pair of my Croc (had to have one pair). I have collected a pair or two that were too small that now will be like having a new pair!
On to my pants. ALL of the pants in my closet had to go! Yes, every last pair. I did save a few strategic pair for the after pictures...I want to stand with both legs in one side of my pants!
Like most women, I have also collected over the years a stash of cloths that "someday will fit". Well now is that very day! I was able to replace the empty place in my closet with 'new' ones.
Tomorrow my DD and I will tacke the tops. I am thinking we wil have plenty of hangers now!
