Closet Clean-up (stage 1)

Sometimes, I just get that feeling that I have to do something NOW. My closet has been in a state of disarray since forever, plus I've always been meaning to put away clothes that don't fit or I don't use anymore. So one morning, when both kids were still asleep, the urge to fix my closet suddenly came over me and I finally got started on it...

Well, it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. One thing I find hard to do is let go of things especially when there's a particular memory attached to it. I kept thinking "aww hubby bought this for me" or "I wore this when hubby and I went to this place, or during this event, or when we were on vacation...blah blah blah"  Or even if I know I probably won't wear something ever again, or it doesn't even fit me anymore, there's this little voice telling me "what if it goes back in style?" or "what if you need this in the future?" and so on and so forth... You get the idea.

I started with just my shirts and tops first (still have pants, skirts and dresses to do... and also shoes!) and at the end my organizing, I had like a small pile I was sure I didn't like anymore and a HUGE PILE I was on the fence about letting go. So in the end, I just kept that huge pile in the bodega. At least I've freed some closet space for now... Hmmm time to go shopping for new clothes? Hahaha kidding! ;p
