So earlier I had said I wasn’t going to go thru and weed out my clothing, but I have been. While cleaning out the guest room I would continue the cleaning and go into my closet. This is what I have my clothing down to for now. I know down the road I will let go if more. Here is my current list:
I bought 6 scarves at the Dollar tree store and sewed them into a autumn wrap. $6.00 compared to $29.99 and up. I like the wrap better than wearing jackets while driving.
Update on sorting and down sizing. I am concentrating on going thru stuff and not so much clothing, but I have narrowed down my jeans to 3 jeans and 4 capri jeans since work has started letting us wear jeans to work. Of course the jeans have to be in good condition, no tears, holes etc… so that’s off of my to do list.
It’s been awhile since I have written. I have been busy clearing out my parents closets. My mom still had some of Dad’s clothing, plus all of her clothing, jewelry etc. I clean out the garage….haven’t touched the shed! Yikes! My mom had 7 totes of stuff. The funny thing is the totes weren’t full. I cleaned out the laundry room and for the most part the kitchen. I am sorting dishes right now. I cleared out my mom’s closet, under her bed and all of the dressers. I finally washed her bedding and the dirty laundry she had from when she went into the hospital last August. That was a hard task. It made everything final… if that makes sense. I have the spare room and the family room still to go and clear out. I am not counting on all of the items my siblings want that I have to put aside and of course they live in another state so no help from them on cleaning and go thru stuff.
As I am clearing things out I have tried to go thru my stuff. I have tried to make my wardrobe minimalist (Insert minion laughing). Biggest problem is that I live in Knoxville, TN and the summers are unbearable. When you wake up at 6:00 AM and it’s 76 degrees out! So I have figured out that I have to have a spring/summer wardrobe and an autumn/winter wardrobe.
So I have narrowed it down to this: (Insert minion laughing again)
It’s been awhile since I have posted anything. I was going to buy my parents home, but without going into to much detail a sibling of mine got a lawyer.
So now I am house hunting. It is exciting and scary all wrapped up in a bundle of I have to pack and move.
