Today has been closet day. We live in a tiny house with tiny closets which requires me to pack my out of season clothes in the basement. So today I finally switched my spring/summer things for winter.
It is always a daunting, boring, tiresome task but gives me the chance to purge my wardrobe of clothing l don’t wear and to take stock of what l do have that l may have forgotten.
In the past, l was more indecisive and willing to give old things a second chance even though l knew in the back of my mind l would never wear them again. Not this year!
Today’s pic is a stack of pants and three hoodies l took to the basement last year. I don’t wear them or they are not my size so this year l am donating them. I also filled a bag with shirts and shorts to donate.
I counted a dozen pair of good jeans in my closet that l can wear. Some even still have tags on them! But l always wear the same couple of pairs week after week. The same goes for khakis! And l do laundry every weekend!
Next year my plan is to wear more and wash less. Or at least less often. Utilizing more of what l do have while hopefully saving some water and electricity too. For now though, l am quite happy donating these clothes to save some space!
