Closet Purge - anyone care to join me?
I'm facing a major purging of my closet this week...as well as my hubby's closet. We have far too many clothes, and now that I have the laundry caught up and a good routine in place for keeping it caught up, we need to streamline our wardrobes.
It's quite a daunting task though, and even though I was firm about wanting to get it done Sunday, the weather was nice, and we ended up out in the yard again. Then there just wasn't time or energy left to tackle the closets.
I realize now that we should have done this during the weeks I was catching laundry up - just not putting anything back in the closet that we didn't want. But we didn't, and time to sit down and do it all at once seems to be difficult to carve out now.
I was thinking maybe I should just do a section from each closet every night. Take 15 minutes to purge clothes from my closet, then 15 minutes to grab a section from hubby's closet and have him tell me what to donate from that. I don't know how well that will work for him, but I know it would work fine for me. Maybe I should just through my closet nightly, and then grab him this weekend to get his done all at once.
I used to just take everything out of my closet, and only put back what I was keeping. But my closet is in the office, and I really don't want to lug all those heavy clothes to the bedroom to sort, then back to the office again to hang what's left. There's not time to do that after work anyways, what with dinner, laundry, workouts, kitchen chores, etc.
In any case, I think my main problem is just "doing" it...so would anyone like to join me in a week-long closet purge of several items daily? We could report back here with our daily tallies...I want to keep a list for tax purposes anyways.
