to purge or not to purge

yesterday i cleaned out our guest room closet and was amazed at the things in there that i didn’t even realize we had. i don’t think we’re packrats by any stretch of the imagination, but goodness! why keep a bunch of things we don’t use when there are others who need them?

as work slows down a bit over the next couple of months, i’m thinking a house-wide purge is in order. the big question in my mind is whether or not to include my closet.

there are quite a few items i haven’t worn yet this year. yet i’m hesitant to get rid of anything because i might need it before the year is up.

at this point, i’m planning to give it a month’s worth of thought. when june rolls around, i’m embarking on the “very few pieces” challenge (more on that this week!) and i think it will force me inspire me to restyle outfits using accessories to a point where i’ll be willing to get rid of items i know in the back of my head i’ll only wear if everything else is seized by aliens.

then again, it’s highly likely that will happen, so i might have to hold onto it all.

    Love the color combo!
    I think I can help you purge some of your clothing. Especially if it benefits me…just being honest :) Plus! If I take some things you’ll always know where to find them if you change your mind! This is perfect.

      Nice. :) You make me laugh. But I do think you’re right. It’s perfect.
