I had some time yesterday and started pulling out tops that didn't fit. I have one closet for tops and sweaters and another for pants. My pant closet always has plenty of room, but my tops closet is usually packed full. I usually can't find a hangar or a spot to hang anything! I have to keep everything together by color and sleeve length in that closet or I will lose everything! I'll never find a top again if it gets out of place. Well....that was until I started cleaning.
About every 3 months I go through the closet and take out a few tops here and there that don't fit. I stop at about 3 bags of tops and take them to Goodwill. Then I will buy more tops and the closet just fills right back to maximum capacity.
Yesterday I don't know what got into me! I was just tearing everything out of there. I was trying things on to see if they still fit, which most things were too big, and I filled 3 giant trash bags. My tops don't even fill one half of the closet now. Almost 3/4 of the closet is just empty hangars.
|Not my closet, but pretty close!|
I sell my jeans back to Plato's Closet when I have to buy smaller pants, but I don't with the tops. I'm going to have to make a trip to Plato's Closet and Goodwill. I just don't have the money to buy new clothes at full price to only wear them for 2 months!
