The only problem with me and organizing is discarding everything. Well not everything but many things. When Daniel and I first got married and were getting used to living with each other I was shocked with the amount of clothes he own. I have moved around so much in my life that I purge the majority of my things every time I move. When we got married I got rid of 3/4ths of my closet. This was not the case with Daniel. I can't remember exact numbers but he had at least 20 pairs of pants!! (he will probably change that when he reads this) (added: I just counted his pants and he has 13 pairs and I through out 4 pairs of jeans yesterday so I am sure he had way more that 20!) Well it took a few months but I got rid of many of his held onto for years clothes. I didn't do it straight away but I waited until we had lived in our second place for 6 months (it didn't help that I was pregnant, I tend to throw everything that bothers me away when pregnant) and I noticed that I had never seen him wear some of the items of clothing (that was 9 month without wearing something!!) So I made him wear it or toss it. Man I am crazy sometimes. Anyway I do the same thing now every 6 months. He comes home from work one day with a reorganized closet and a pile of clothes thrown at him to toss or convince me he will wear. So here are some pictures.(haha I just noticed the random black sock. It gets to sit there until its partner is found)
After rereading what I just typed I am wondering if this is a strange thing I do? Do you keep all your clothes from forever ago or do you try to keep only the classic peices that you still want to wear and that make you feel good? I even purge SHOES!! That may be a deadly sin but I know which shoes I love and wear and which ones looked good in the store that I now avoid looking at. We all have our quirks right? I guess I am the opposite of a hoarder. Anyway I am serious what are your clothes hoarding habits?
