I was inspired....

by a post Hearthie had yesterday. Seems that most women only wear 20% of their clothes. I sat down and gave it some thought - I wear about 75% of my wardrobe. This AM, I weeded. Heavily. 3 trash bags full, in fact.

I now am down to clothes that I WiLL and DO wear. 2 bags are going to be donated; 1 is out in the trash bin. Those were too worn - in fact, I kept them for "work" days, but hardly ever wore them. I also have a handful of shirts that will eventually become a t-shirt quilt - they are a bit too worn for everyday wear, but the graphics are still good, so.....I'll use them.

What was kept - a few of the shirts I made, a couple of "dressy" short-sleeved shirts, my collection of geeky graphic tees, a couple of long-sleeved shirts, a couple of sweaters, and my clan shirts. They only get worn 2x/year, but....they're kind of Clan-specific. Not really......kosher for every day wear (because they have our Clan crest and motto on them, and...well, some people are easily offended. The Scots aren't really into political correctness. :lol: (Ours has a head on a sword. No biggie - I know the history - but...some people look for things to be offended by. :shrug:)

Anyway. My closet is lighter, and I'm down to clothes I'll wear 95% of the time. Next up, the underwear drawer. I have to replace those, though, so it'll be a while. :rofl:

Herself is getting ready to clear out her closet, too. She has a VERY hard time getting rid of stuff...so this is BIG. Helps that I'm almost done with Jeans V.1.0, and I told her we could get her some new t-shirts in the next month or so. She tends to wear things even when she's outgrown them.......:sigh: and :lol: We'll see how she does...then I have to tackle Himself's closet. He's...well, he's 15. THAT should tell you everything you need to know, right there. :snicker:
