I must clean out the closet!

I’ve had a history of shopaholism, and I made this deal with myself that I have to clean out my (our) closet before I buy anymore new clothes or shoes. I don’t think I’ll really need new clothes even after everything is cleaned out, but I’m not even going to let myself consider it until I do because we are a crazy disorganized mess of clothes. I’m going to start with the closet first, but I’ll have to go through dresser as well and the winter and other clothes that are in storage, too (eek). I have so many things that don’t fit, are really worn out, or just not appropriate anymore that I need to let go of.

I’m going to keep the things I’m either going to wear or upcycle and then give the rest away.

Of course, that’s much easier said than done.

I have pack rat tendancies. I think I get it from my mom. My aunt/her sister has even stronger pack rat-ness. Fortunately, none of us are to the level that we need to be on a reality show like “Hoarders” or “Clean House,” but my parents’ garage could definitely use some work once the weather cools.

Why do I keep things?
1. I might use them later. Isn’t that what everyone says?
2. I hate to let things go to waste.

Why should I get rid of things?
1. We need space and organization.
2. Excess is wasteful, too.
3. Other people can make use of them.
4. I want new stuff. Good reason, right?

I just have to keep reminding myself.
