Have you ever looked around your house and thought that it was time to really get in and do a good, brutally honest toss-out? Well, as a lot of you who have been following me for a while now know I have been cleaning out my house for a while. And now, I'm up to a stage where I'm about to attack the wardrobes. Yep, I've begun going through my clothes and tossing out what I don't need, doesn't fit me and letting it go to the charity bins.
Yesterday was the day it all began. I opened the wardrobe where my skirts, shirts and jeans lived and I pulled it all out, dumped them onto the bed and checked the sizes. Anything that wasn't a size 12 went into the charity garbage bag; and there was a lot that didn't fit me. There were some jeans that looked like it did, but then, when I tried them on, they didn't (I had to make sure they weren't a large fit).

While I was putting my clothes away, I also sorted through my vintage t-shirts and thought it would do them a world of good to put them through the wash today. And on the way through sorting them, I found a t-shirt I thought I had binned years ago. It was my Pride Fair Day T-shirt from 2000. Why I hadn't tossed it out is beyond me, and I didn't think twice about throwing it out, it just went straight into the charity bag unwashed and unfolded. This is a win for me to throw out something from my past as I no longer have any connection to it - and fortunately - don't feel guilt in throwing it out.
After around forty-five minutes, I had replaced the draw-lining, put all the jeans and shorts back. The Winter t-shirts were in the wardrobe along with the skirts. My Summer shirts were in the duchess and most of the laundry was put away. I had a rubbish bag full of clothes to give away, the bath towels to fold and put away and I was done. I was very pleased with myself; as this wasn't the only thing I had gotten done yesterday.
I had also vacuumed the bathroom floor and scrubbed the shower cubicle within an inch of its life. That was a good part of an hour before I attacked my wardrobe.However, today, I'm hoping to sort through all my hanging space in the other two-door wardrobe. I have far too many dressing gowns; with about eight of them in there, I only need three really. So, I'm going to look at them and keep the ones I want and give away the others after washing them. Then, it'll be time to go through all my other clothes and jackets. Now, that's going to be painful! I do love my jackets; they all serve a purpose. Until my next post, take care, keep warm and safe and remember I'm always here.
