Forced myself to go through my closet - ouch. At the moment I do pretty much have 2 complete wardrobes - wearable and too-small. I will not give up on myself, so I'm not willing to get rid of the too-small collection. It is motivation of a sort.
I did go through both sets of clothing, looking for anything that has not held up well through a few wearings and washings, anything that did not thrill me when looking at it. I asked myself, regardless of size, if I could wear it right this moment, would I want to? There were 3 kitchen garbage bags of things for which I could not answer yes. A few were things that I just did not enjoy wearing, even though I could right now. I probably could have removed another bag-full, but that was enough for one difficult day.
On a side note, how many skirts constitute too many? Mine are on those 4-5 skirt hangers, and I have at least a dozen of those hangers! Why do I love skirts so much? They really are my favorite type of garment!
So, a little space cleared. The walk-in closet back to being the main storage for all hanging, mundane clothes, wearable or not. The additional jury-rigged hanging space in the dressing area now usable for garb and the ugly, cheap garment rack returned to storage for use at camping events or (reluctantly) a garage sale. The garb had been in the sewing area, but that was getting unmanageable, and besides, I like finished work to get OUT of there!
Tomorrow's goal - yup, a goal for Thanksgiving day, since 1/2 the household went camping this afternoon...mine my way back into the studio - seriously. The entry is blocked! Once in, restore the mess I made before the last camping event and the last mad garb scramble, as well as the prep for the hat class last weekend. Once I can work again - back to building garb, and working on the new camping structure. Have poles - need cover. Lots of sewing and for the first time in a long, long time, I'm feeling motivated and excited about getting some things done. Yeah!
