Organizing My Stuffs
Tuesday December 01, 2009
So this past Sunday I forced myself to get to organizing 2 big MUST DO’S. The first, under the sink where all my hair stuff is. With the 2 new tools I needed to clean out old products and shift things around. Turned out really great! Only a few products needed to be disposed of. I’ve been getting better about actually FINISHING more hair products because I’ve found real things I LOVE. In the old days I’d keep buying more random hair products never loving anything.
The orange notebook is a place I’d print out and paste hairstyle tutorials. I haven’t really used it in a year or so~ I really needed it when I was first mastering curls.
The next feat was my closet! I’ve been running out of room having to buy new clothes that fit. So Mike helped me clear our out spare closet in the office/second bedroom. I’m still a little paranoid about getting rid of clothes that are too big. I want to wait just a bit longer before donating/selling/whatever them. So I went through 1 by 1 and moved things I hadn’t either worn in a year or just were too ridiculously big to wear anymore. This is what I came up with…
A LOT of jeans
Others I kept just to wear as “boyfriend jeans” but these plum fall straight off me. Most of these were already comfort fit so I wasn’t surprised I couldn’t wear them.
Gonna keep these in here till maybe the summer? Then I’ll figure out the next step for em.
Since the clearing getting dressed has bizarrely become easier! It’s sad but true!! I don’t have this overwhelming feeling of “OH GOD WHAT DO I WEAR?!” Instead, only my favorites are left in my closet. I might look into purging even more clothing to simplify my life. hehe
This top row are all “play clothes” meaning non-work.
It looks like a lot still~ But this is all season on this rack. Winter~summer. Once I clear out the spare closet with the stuff I will most likely get rid of I can start switching out my clothes with the season instead of keeping them all together. When I look at this though I do feel blessed. All through my life and throughout college I had so few clothes. Maybe 3 pairs of pants and 6 shirts. To have all this now makes me so blessed but also a little selfish.
The bottom row is work clothes (plus a few new coats/outerwear.) I kinda smooshed everything together so it’s hard to see stuff. Just khakis, long skirts and button ups. Oddly enough (and crappily) most the pieces that didn’t fit anymore were work clothes. Ugh…. That blows because work clothes cost on average twice as much as some fun top would cost me. I’m slowing replenishing my work clothes but my motivation for this is pretty low, ahahahahaaaa!
I’m going to go get ready for bed and sit down and watch the Victoria’s Secret show. Hope everybody has a nice Wednesday. Sorry to just talk about my stupid closet, haahaa, nothing much to talk about lately because I’ve been busy. Work, then housework, Christmas shopping, post office runs, and of course damn XBOX games (hahahahaaa!)
I’ll post a few more pics of my closet. I love my closet, it’s probably my favorite room in the house
*FYI we have his & her closets! LOL, so no, Mike’s not forced to keep his clothes in some box ;) He’s got his own in our bedroom like mine :) (only it’s a train wreck, I assure you. LOL
