I don't wear that many clothes so WHY do I keep so many? I guess I am emotionally attached. I think that one day I will suddenly NEED to wear that green sweater, or blue shirt, or brown tank top. Some day I will find the perfect pants to go with them and suddenly I will have a great outfit to wear. But the reality is that I keep these things in my closet or in a bag for years. They take up space (space I that I don't have to spare in an RV) and I never wear them. I even forget that I had them. When I went through my drawers, closet and giant clothes bag today I found stuff that I thought I had given away a long time ago. But once I see it again I think that maybe this season I will wear it.
Oh, and then there are the comfy items that I have worn to death but can't bear to throw away. The edges are tattered and they are getting holes but they are like an old faithful friend...just like those old sandals that I had for years (I still haven't actually put them in the trash). This time when I sort the clothes in to 'give away' and 'summer clothes' I need to take the give away bag to the donation center right away or else it will go right back in to my closet and I will have to sort them again next season change. My comfy clothes are a lot harder to part with. I have 3 generations of sweatpants in my closet. The black ones have holes, the grey ones are looking old and my new ones are the ones I put on every day after work. Am I worried that I am going to have a sweat pants emergency and suddenly need 2 back-up pair? One back-up pair is fine. I just need to throw them out and move on. I'll try...but I'm not promising anything!
