Yesterday I was trying on pants & jeans. I have a hard time getting rid of clothes.
So far I got rid of one pair of jeans. The reason is a bad torn in the butt thigh area. I had torn them last October when I was doing yard work at the cottage. I keep old clothes for when we go to the farm & when I am doing yard work.
I create a maybe tub of clothes. In this tub are jeans that are too big & jeans that are tight. If I could lose 6 more pounds those tight jeans will fit me again.
I am reading this book on Life Management & this is what they said about clothes.
This is how you need to think about your clothes to de-cluttering. We only wear about 20% of the clothes in our closet. You should put your clothes in categories:
1. I love this item & really need it--- keep it.
2. I don’t love it & really don’t need this item any more --- throw it away.
3. I’m not sure how I feel about this item & I’m not sure that I really need it --- add to maybe pile.
4. I definitely don’t love this item but I do need it --- upgrade with a new replacement that you love.
So now I will make another trip to the tub & decide again.
Have a good day!
