I sprayed my shower down this afternoon with a little Magic Spray. That stuff is amazing.
Our closet is off our bathroom, so I decided that, since I had a couple hours of wait-time for the Magic to work, I'd clean out my side of the closet. This has been needing to be done for oh, about 5 years.
I am a terrible hoarder when it comes to certain clothing items. I have a few things that date back to college days. And as embarrassing as that may be, I will most likely still be holding onto my beloved grey sweatshirt when I'm 90! Somethings you just CAN'T GIVE UP.
I have this tendency to think that if something isn't completely worn out, I'll wear it again.
Over the past few weeks, I've come home with some cute new clothes. But I haven't taken the much needed time to sort out my old things. So I had to just keep cramming my new clothes into my already stuffed closet.
A few days ago, I hit rock-bottom: I literally had zero hangers free to hang things up. The line was drawn. The clothes were wrinkled and wearing on me.
Something (plural, please, somethings) had to go.
So I pulled out every item that I hadn't worn in the past year. There were many that hadn't even seen the outside of this closet in the three years we've been in this house. I piled them all on my bed and started sorting.
I now have a few new piles ready for the Thrifty shop and my closet is much more manageable.
This is usually the place where if I was reading this story on someone else's blog they say something like, "I found a few treasures I had completely forgotten about!" Yeah. Not me. Everything I pulled out that went to the giveaway piles were not treasures and had not been forgotten about. I had just been plain lazy.
Have you cleaned out your closet lately? Or are you really good and keep it cleaned out and organized? I would totally be impressed if you did.
