Project: Clothing Purge

Last weekend (as in a week ago), Reed came over to help me with a little clothing purge. My closet and dressers were stuffed, but I was still wearing the same things pretty much every week. She has great style, and is super creative (and honest), so I figured she'd be a good person to help me figure out how to wear what I have, as well as what I just don't need.

A few hours and several mimosas later, I had a pretty large stack of clothes ready for Goodwill (and Reed got to take home some clothes/shoes as well - win!) as well as a slew of ideas of how to pair some of my clothes in ways I hadn't thought of...and...yes...a reminder about some clothes I forgot I had. Funny how that works.

Newly re-organized tshirt/long-sleeved shirt drawer
Pile of giveaway clothes 
All piled up, nice and neat
Looks sort of more impressive this way.
I included this one for perspective,
and also because I feel like I look sassy.

I meant to post this last week, and then I didn't, and it's probably better that I didn't, because I just did the pants drawer (which we didn't get to last weekend) tonight. But either way, my drawers and closets close a little easier, and I'm looking at what I have in a new way. So that's exciting. Getting things done, hooray!


  1. Ahhh, I started this too, but have not finished.  Thanks for the gentle reminder of the rewarded feeling.

  2. You are most welcome! It feels good indeed! I believe in you!

  3. I need to do this so badly! Our closet is overflowing and I don't wear half the stuff in there. :(
