This week, I wanted to complete two organizing goals.
l. Sort through clothing to get rid of a few items that I simply don’t wear. I eather don’t like the fit, or the style.
2. Make room in my craft closet to keep my sewing machine out.
Yesterday I went through all my clothing. I tried many items on. When I shop, I often buy things because I love their color and style…(when they are cheap!) Usually at a clearance sale or a slightly used item at a thrift store. When I buy, I often don’t try them on. I store clothing in my craft room closet that are out of season or are a bit too small. In the spring all my spring dresses replace my winter dresses in my bedroom closet. I have kept many items that are a size to small. What I love to wear are dresses and jumpers that are hard to find. When I find something that I love I buy it and keep it….until it fits! Always optomistic about this! I sorted and got rid of a few things. I also found a few jumpers I had stored that now fit perfectly! 🙂 (Everything somewhat fits, but unless I am down a few more pounds, alot I know I won’t wear until it is looser. )
I found these great clothing storing boxes at Walmart. They will fit above our closet shelves. The cost is right and the look is just right. I packed away those clothes that I love. I am pretty sure by mid summer, Almost all of them will be a perfect fit.
Putting these away above my other clothes has given me more room in my craft room closet. It also motivates me to continue to make good food choices. I have alot of nice clothing that will be a perfect fit very soon! I will now get to put my sewing machine out on a small table that I have. It is an old typing table on rollers. I can open the closet, roll out the machine, and have it set up to use quickly. Yeah!! Two things done. My sewing machine handy, and my clothing sorted. A great productive week!
I hope you all had a great week. Tonight we get to go to a love feast! Tomorrow I get to go with a dear friend to a Scrapbook crop. A day full of crafting.
Much blessing to you all….Enjoy a day full of praise. LUBM Debbie
