I was running late to work this morning and couldn’t find anything to wear. Not that I didn’t have anything clean, just…I have TOO much. Too many options. Too many shoes. Too many pants. Too many dresses. My closet looks like a scene out of Hoarders. Tragic times indeed.
I tried to clean out my closet a few months ago and could only force myself to get rid of 3 pairs of shoes. Out of the at LEAST 50+ pairs I have, that’s a pretty low number. I couldn’t part with my sky high YELLOW platform pumps, because well…sky high yellow platform pumps are awesome. But have I worn them since? Of course not.
I discovered jeans with tags still on them, shirts I haven’t worn in forever and more purses than I know what to do with. But I can’t seem to really part with anything. Since I’m slowly getting ready for this trip, I need to minimize the amount of stuff I own. By a lot. But it’s terribly overwhelming. I look at my closet and see the utter destruction and get a ton of anxiety and vow I’ll get to get another day. Of course that day hasn’t come yet.
But the time has come where the clutter and the disorganization is taking slowly over my life and I need to do something about it. I don’t want Dr. Zazio from Hoarders knocking on my door.
How do you get rid of stuff? Do you just throw it in a bag and give it to goodwill? Sell it? I need help! I want to slowly get rid of as much stuff as possible before I leave for Thailand.
Does anyone have any tips for getting rid of things?
*ps: The above picture is NOT my closet…but it’s pretty close
*pss: Hoarders is one of my favorite shows. But I almost died watching the episode with the rats. 2500 rats?!?!? ahhh!!!!
