Out with the Old…

One major problem that I have discovered since living in an apartment is there is just not enough room for my clothes! My poor husband has given me most of the room in the closet, but I still have to double up my clothes on hangers. I decided I was tired of having a closet jam packed of clothes, especially when half the time I end up standing in the closet forever trying to decide what to wear. I usually just end up wearing the same outfits, because I just don’t wear half of my clothes or I can’t find anything in my hotmess of a closet.

To help solve this problem I finally decided that I was going to do a closet cleanse. I was going to get rid of the clothes that I hardly wear, and I will only buy clothes that I absolutely love! If I don’t love it, then I won’t buy it! (that is the plan anyway 😉 )

This was also a good excuse to start fresh. I have found over the years, my style has changed and I don’t wear the things that I used to. To begin, I went through all of my clothes and got everything I didn’t wear and put it in a pile. I had everything from clothes, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. By the end of the clean out we had 3 bags full (I made my husband clean out his clothes too). This week we are going to take our clothes to Plato’s Closet, to help fund the process of filling our closet back up. Haha.

I can’t wait to start finding new pieces. Hopefully I can stick to my rule and only buy things I love!

Once I got rid of the clothes in the spare closet, I could finally put my coats in there. I love my faux furs, but they took up a lot of room!

The top mostly looks like the biggest change, but I was able to space out my hanging clothes a lot more!
