Stuff

One should never have this many shoes...Or this many clothes (these are the ones in "storage" - not the ones I wear on a usual basis).
I spent the bulk of this afternoon cleaning out my clothes and shoes in my closet and in my dresser. Just the hope of moving in a month has me ready to purge what I do not need. I certainly had a lot of stuff and hope that now I just have a medium amount of stuff. The house the Sweet Boy and I are crossing our fingers will be our next one has less closet space. That's not a problem as long as I can clean out my life. I just have stuff here, stuff there, stuff tucked in there. We came from the worlds smallest apartment, so we've acquired this junk since moving here 2.5 years ago. The only problem with a house that has a lot of storage is you will fill it up, whether you need to or not.

I did reward myself with some barely used Gap jeans ($15) and some brand new, but still at the used shop, purple shoes ($6). Seeing as how I got rid of about 8 pairs of jeans and just as many shoes, it's ok to get one of each to put back in the mess.Today was not entire spent on cleaning. I did get lots done for my shop exposure for July. My sister had these great shutters that make the perfect display stand for my necklaces and earrings. I think I'll just display my bracelets on a table, they don't get to hang.

My personal belief is One should ALWAYS have that many shoes and that many clothes. Unfortunately, I don't. Love those purple shoes!!

Yay for you!!! I was forced to drastically downsize my wardrobe when my daughter was born cause uh... well... things just didn't fit any more! My clothing needs also changed then, as I was no longer working a professionoal job. I've since started rebuilding the wardrobe, but with a much more planned approach. My wardrobe is now much leaner (in selection, that is), but works so much better for me! I didn't realize how much before I was burdened by choices and volume.

Now if only I could apply the same discipline to my fabric closet and my studio...

I don't know why, but instead of shoes I have an abundance of sandals. I must buy 2 or 3 pairs every summer. I have some that are 10 years old. Because I have so many to choose from, they never get worn out.

And I LOVE those purple shoes!!
