Spring is just around the corner (officially on Thursday!) but the urge to do a bit of early spring cleaning compelled me. I've always had a difficult time managing my closet, and even though I make quarterly trips to donate, it seems like the clothes keep multiplying. Something really needed to be done.
I threw open my closets and drawers and piled all of my clothes that I owned onto the bed with one goal in mind: Reduce my clothing pile by 50%.
My strategy: Dump clothes into a pile, separate clothes into like-piles, and then go through and make "Keep" and "Giveaway" piles.
It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, but I was amazed at all of the crap I had accumulated. I mean, I found an Orlando Magic jersey and a Space Camp t-shirt from when I was a kid!
|26 deviantART shirts! These were dA Staff shirts from SDCC!|
|Gave away a rainbow of colors *u*|
|I created a nostalgic rule to keep 10 pieces of clothing that were just sentimental. I went to Space Camp in the 4th grade, and my father took me to a billion concerts, one of which was Bob Dylan!|
|Gave away 10 dresses, one of which was this great summer dress.|
|Finally parted with my rainbow hoodie ;__;|
|My closet is still pretty full... but at least it all fits!|
|Even if this hockey jersey doesn't fit in amongst the frills ;)|
|A billion bags (7) of clothes to donate. And a bonus cat!|
- 10 skirts, 10 dresses were given away
- 26 deviantART shirts = highest number of like clothing
- I had a difficult time getting rid of pretty shirts and skirts
- 74 items of clothing donated!
Still a long way to go, but what a load off of my wardrobe! I'm not accustomed to spring cleaning, it's definitely made me (and my bedroom) feel a lot lighter. Happy Monday, friends!
