So when I heard about Project 333 where people purge their clothes down to 33 items, I thought “I can do that!!!”
Well, I guess I can’t. But I did get rid of 1/3 of my clothes! 🙂 I am off to a great start! (From my experience of cleaning Thing 3’s room, I know that even doing that much will make it so much easier next time to get rid of more!)
Here is why I need to get rid of clothes. I have so many it is too hard to put clean ones away and they end up piled on things!
My biggest problem is skirts and what I determined is I need to buy skirt hangers that come apart, so when I wear a skirt I take a hanger out so it is easy to hang back up!
I made a few different piles.
- Things I love
- Things I want to keep but don’t love
- Birth Shirts (I had 10)
- Specialty items (like formal dresses and things I like to bring on trips)
- Give Away
My things I love pile was so big, part of it fell to the floor!
I think it was equal to things I want to keep but don’t know why.
I started by putting all the things I love back into the closet. (along with specialty items and my birth shirts -special specialty item)
Then I went through the pile I wanted to keep but didn’t know why. I got rid of all but 12 things in that pile on the right – pretty good! Those things I hung up with the hanger backward in my closet. If I wear it I will turn the hanger around. In 2 months if I haven’t worn it, out it goes!)
Then I got to work on my dresser. I took all my pants out – which took up 2 drawers.
Then I went through my pj an underwear drawers. I got rid of some of those things too!
At the end I had 60 items I gave away and I kept 120. So 1/3 of my clothes donated!
Maybe I will one day get down to 33!Pin It
