Spring Cleaning My Closet

I have absolutely no idea what got into me over the weekend, but I woke up Saturday morning and decided it was time to clean out my closet.  However, this time, unlike all other times, I didn't just look through my closet and pull out a few random things I don't wear anymore.  No, this time I tried on every single piece of clothing in my closet and dresser. It took forever!  In the end I donated three massive black bags of clothing and shoes to Goodwill.

What I learned from this process:
* I have a style I like. It might not be the most fashionable, or even original, but most of what sat relatively unworn were things I was trying to make work that just didn't work for me.
* A significant portion of what I donated came from two stores.  Note to self: don't shop there anymore!
* Get rid of things that don't fit or have stains/snags/pulls immediately.  I didn't lose weight, nor did I attempt to fix any of those pieces of clothing and in the end they took up far too much room in my closet for far too long.

On the plus side, the shirt/blouse section of my closet is looking kind of lonely.  Time to get out the credit card!
