Clearing out clothing

Well, in my minimalist journey- it feels that the time has come to tackle the wardrobes, cupboards and drawers that hold my clothing. I have decided finally, to follow much of the advice I have read. So, I will be turning around my hangers to see which items I actually am wearing. I have also decided to make a start on getting rid of some stuff by getting rid of items with holes in or marks on. Those clothes I have kept for painting, when in fact I am sure I could find something old enough to paint in. And painting happens in different seasons, so I really don’t need to keep shorts and t-shirts, trousers and jumpers! All those just-in-case items need to go!

I have just sold a pair of boots that had seen better days, but were really nice and still had life left in them. I have bought myself a needed replacement. So, from now on I will try to practice the one in, one out theory too. Here are the old faithful boots that I have gone.

In other news, I have also gotten rid of around 50 books, here are just some of them! The Pratchett collection that was my husband’s. They have found a wonderful new home, as a birthday gift to a fan via eBay.

After this, I plan to tackle toiletries and make-up and throw out the items I have that I know have been open too long.

I’ll keep you posted!
