I have a big bag of clothes to give away. It is sitting at the foot of my bed so that I have to crawl over it every day until I actually take it out to the donation center. If I put it in the closet it will sit there for years. Then I might be tempted to take things out and put them back in my closet even though I know that I will never wear them. Take that dress on top. I think that flower pattern is so pretty...for curtains maybe...as a dress on me, it looks horrible. Totally the wrong color for me. But I really like it, on a hanger, and I want to keep it, just because.
The sooner that bag goes out the better. I actually have some room in my tiny RV closet again and I like it that way. I have been trying to wear the items that are left so that I can justify keeping them. I'm sure there are many more things that could go and I would never miss them but I hang on to them just in case I suddenly find the perfect pants to match or whatever. This doesn't mean that I am not going to go out and buy more clothes. Clothes that I want to wear are always welcome, clothes that just look good on the hanger have got to go!
