In a mixture of staging the house and downsizing our stuff - I finally went through all of my clothes. Holy Shit - I have WAY TOO MUCH stuff! I'll be glad to give away some great things to someone in need.
I made 4 categories and all my clothes had to fit into one of them:
- Bring to Florida - this is still a work in progress... Not sure what I'm going to bring.
- Wear for the next 4 months - mostly work clothes, work out gear, casual stuff
- Donate - good quality items that don't fit 1 or 2
- Garbage - worn out/torn/paint clothes etc.
This is what I ended up with:
It's a mountain of clothes! Lots of it went to my sister-in-law/friends and the rest will be donated. I can't believe I even owned this much clothes. [In a futile defense, I will say that we have VERY distinct seasons in Calgary! You have to dress for them all!]
It's such a good feeling to downsize and get rid of excess stuff - and now my closets are so tidy and organized, getting ready in the morning is already faster.
House photos are coming soon - the photographer is coming this Thursday! I'll keep you posted :)
