Spring Thinning

On Sunday, me and D went on a little shopping spree. He needed suits for work and I, well, needed to work on my love/hate relationship with my summer wardrobe . . . and overall, I think it would be save to say that we won ;) HOWEVER, when we got home and examined our already jam-packed closets [yes, we are BOTH bit of a “clothes horse”] it was overwhelming. SO, D in his usual brilliance grabbed some trash bags and got to thinning!

Spring Thinning

There is something surprisingly therapeutic about cleaning your closets. Now, I’ve never been a big fan of the whole “spring cleaning” concept. I usually do my major organizing right before the holidays hit [remember Fall Forward?] I also probably don’t love it, because getting rid of stuff sends me into an emotional spiral of confusion:

Do I keep this?

Man, I loved that style that year.

What if someone has a party themed [blank]?

I know I haven’t worn this in two years, BUT I wore it on that day that [blank] happened.

Are you starting to see the picture? D, on the other hand, is really good at deciding what to keep and what to toss. He definitely had a bigger Goodwill pile than I, BUT with his help, I actually made some tough fashion decisions too. And you know what? Our closets are looking pretty fit because of it.

So, no matter how painful it is, I’ll be the first one to admit that a little clutter busting is always a good thing!
