I just finished another shameful purge of my closet, where several piles of clothes that were in perfectly good condition were either consigned or donated. I always feel a little bad doing so, because I feel wasteful and/or greedy or because something has so many memories associated with it that I just hate to get rid of it, even though it no longer fits and never will. I simply have too many clothes and can't bear to get rid of most of them OR keep buying new ones (although not as much.....)
So on that note, I've been trying my hardest (Scout's honor) to not purchase any more clothing. It's not fun. In fact, it down right stinks, but it just makes sense....common sense that is. In fact, we went into a store today and I just stood there in the bra section (the least tempting section..I HATE bra shopping) and waited for Aaron while he tried on some things. It wasn't fun either. Again, it stunk. But it felt good too! I simply need to wear more of my clothes before I flippantly get rid of them.
I'm also still sifting through my entire house, evaluating and getting rid of things(again via consignment or donation) that are no longer loved or useful. It feels so good to get rid of things and see spaces open up in our little house. It's also so much easier to keep clean! Oh, and lets be honest, shall we? It's nice to make a little extra spending money on random stuff collecting dust!
