I got a few new clothes this week during a great clearance sale at Jay's Sporting Goods, where my son, Josh, works. When I tried to stuff them in my closet I realized a good cleaning was in order. I still have a large stack of hangers to find another closet to hide in.
There is no reason to keep clothes that you don't wear, haven't worn, have no intention of ever wearing. Most of my clothes are second-hand. The dresses and skirts are far too long and the shirts too low-cut for me (I'm short and can't wear these styles, especially when they're not petites sizes). The result of this "clearing out" is a fair amount of usable clothing hanging freely without being smashed together.
I need to do this with every clothes closet in the house. The boys will love me for it! (not)
