There have been rain showers on and off today. I managed to get out between them and walk the dogs, but other than that its been an indoor day.
I've been putting off going through my closet and dresser to cull the old, ill fitting clothes. I managed to come up with several things to procrastinate on that task today. I finally returned a couple items at Costco. I bought groceries for the week. I did a couple loads of laundry, (and left them in the basket because its too hard to put them away until I sort out the drawers.)
Well, I finally just got in and started pulling everything out of the closet. The bed was covered with clothes! I've culled out 3 bags so far. Why is it so hard to let go of a worn out shirt that hasn't been worn more than a couple times in the last few years. It has seen its better day. Its time to put it out of its misery, but it was such a good shirt when I used to wear it a lot. It went with everything. It made me feel good. The color was great! Get over it, self! I can't put away the things I do wear because of that shirt and several others like it.
The old stuff is in the give away bags now!! It was actually fun to try on the things that I wasn't sure about and either pitch, or decide it looks better now.
Good music is helping the process! I've actually been dancing in the bedroom in between decisions on what stays and what goes. If cleaning closets is on your to-do list, just plunge in with some good music! Its turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected. Why did I put this off for so long?
