I finally got into my closet over the weekend to start cleaning out some junk.
At one point I found myself sitting on the floor, looking through old shoes, when a bunch of tops, socks and pajamas from the “needs to be washed” pile tumbled down on me. I figure if a tornado ever comes through, I can just get in the closet under all those clothes and be perfectly safe.
Little did I know that I would have a new wardrobe when I started digging. I found things I had completely forgotten about buying.
Boots that were long forgotten resurfaced. Score!! I love my boots, as I mentioned in an earlier post.
It was like going shopping for free. Well, almost free. Like somebody else paid for it free.
I also discovered that I had not lost as much weight as I thought I had. Score for the “give away” pile!
I think my waist got longer too – a lot of my old tops shrunk while laying in the closet and are now too short. The pile leaving the house keeps growing…
What do you do with a big ol box of socks that are multi-colored and match nothing? Ain’t nobody gonna want that.
I guess that’s the box you shove to the back and hope it fades away. I wonder if sock wreaths are in for gift giving this year…
If you’re playing the White Elephant game at a Christmas party this year and I’m there, you might want to keep that in mind.
At this rate, I’ll go into Spring 2019 less cluttered and somebody, somewhere with a short waist will be wearing my shirts. Score, again!

Yea for finding the boots! Whenever I switch clothes over for the season, I always discover things I forgot I bought. I think maybe we both have too much stuff..except for the boots, of course.
I so relate, Connie. I tried to convince myself that having a messy closet would give me a place to hide in case of a break-in. ha!!! I enjoyed your post. 🙂

Hey – I didn’t think of that! A burglar would never check a messy closet! Glad you enjoyed reading, Cathy.😊
