Yesterday my Husband finally got round to sorting out his clothes.
He has had 2 1/2 wardrobes, 9 drawers and 4 baskets full of stuff, about 70% of which he never wears. After the big clear out there is 2 wardrobes and 5 drawers in total. Also 2 of the 10 or so coats have gone. (still too many coats for one person in my opinion but there we are). The thing I’m most pleased with is the shoes. He has been holding onto several pairs of running shoes from years ago for sentimental reasons and he has now let them go.
I’ve loaded 4 bin bags into the car and tomorrow they will go to the local charity shops. I will share the stuff out between them as I feel guilty taking too much stuff into one shop for them to sort out. Guilt is a hobby of mine….
Anyway I can’t tell you how much lighter it makes me feel to be able to go to bed without piles of clothes which won’t fit into the wardrobes like leaning towers of Pisa looming over the bed!

Sorry if you’ve covered this, but have you come across the Project 333 blog? I haven’t done it but I think the idea is to reduce your wardrobe to 33 items (including pretty much everything), which can change with the seasons. I have so many things I don’t wear and it feels like such a waste of space, and waste of stuff that might be useful to someone else!

I’ll certainly give that a look. I think I’ve probably got more than 33 pairs of knickers alone!

“Guilt is a hobby of mine”… Should we start a club? 🙂

We could call it the “no, no – my fault entirely” club.
