Oh how they stress me out! Last year I was about the same size I am now, but thought for sure I would lose weight, so I only purchased one pair of capri pants and two shirts for the spring. For the summer time, I got two more shirts and two pairs of shorts. I made do with that. In the winter my folks bought me some clothes, but now that it is warm I had nothing to wear! Josh and I are going on a cruise VERY soon and I HAD to have some cute things to wear, plus for every day! Andy and I went shopping yesterday and I got many cute things, including a new swimsuit. I came home and was SO aggravated. I have a closet full of beautiful clothes. Not one thing in that closet fits me. I have an armoire full of beautiful clothes, in which nothing fits. Then I have piles of clean clothes that do fit and all these new things that fit and NOWHERE to put them. Something is wrong with this picture! So…I am boxing up EACH and every thing that does not fit. I am sure Josh will not want it in the garage, but it does not help my self esteem to stare at size 6 and 8 clothes and see my nice things in a pile. I started pulling everything in our closet out yesterday (then of course I did not get to finish because of two little boys!) but I am determined to change this system. It is not working for me!
Since we moved I have a lot less help than I used to. Josh works longer hours and my parents are not just a couple of miles away. At our old home when the kids outgrew clothes I had them packed up and put away quickly, making room for the new things. Andy’s closet and drawers still have 6-9 and 9-12 month clothes in them. He is wearing 18 months. Noah’s still has 2t pants and 3t shirts, he is now in 3t pants and 4t shirts. I have got to fix this problem too! Hopefully I can get this sorted out asap. I am drowning in clothes that do not fit us!
So I have a question for you.... what do you do with the clothes that do not fit and you hope to wear again? Or the out of season clothes that are taking up space in your small closets? I am in need of a solution!
