Clean(er) Closet

I got on a big roll this afternoon and started weeding out clothes from my closet. At first, I thought I'd just add to a pile I'd already started, but the pile grew into a mountain! Wow! Some of the clothes, all too big for me now, were easy to discard, but other pieces were harder to give up, for various reasons. I piled everything into 5 large trash bags, and loaded them into the car with George's help. Then I took the bags immediately to the nearby Goodwill store.

My closet looks so much better now, not as good as this closet (not mine)on the left, but better than before.

I was almost extremely jealous of you - I did think that was your closet!

I really need to do a closet cleaning, too. Right now, I just take the stuff I don't want and throw it in the guest room closet. It's horrible!! I now need to clean out the guest room closet AND my closet!

Boy, I wish that were my closet, for sure! :) Maybe someday!

Awwww I thought this was your closet at first and was soooo impressed :-)

Still, well done on getting rid of all the unwanted clothes. It's a start!

Lesley, your site is one of my favorite Durham blogs! I was pleasantly surprised to find out we were at the same picnic (I go to ERUUF)

Also wanted to congratulate you on your recent closet purge! I'm a big fan of organizing and proponent of the "own only what you need" philosophy.

Have a great weekend!
