If you read my post about Falling Of The Wagon then you know I went shopping and bought some new clothes for the summer. I bought two dresses, well I bought one dress and my friends Linda and Bill bought me the other one for my birthday.
I also bought about six new tops but even though I had fallen off the wagon with the credit card I did however finally, shop smart. I tried everything on, made sure it fit and that I liked it on me. I never used to do that. I would just say "Oh I like that" and throw it in the cart. The majority of the time when I got it home, I didn't like how it looked on me but was too lazy to return it so it just sat in my closet unworn.
Last Saturday I went onto EBAY to see if I could sell some of the mounds of clothing I have and it seems if your clothes aren't designer, high end clothes they simply do not sell. So no use in listing on EBAY and paying fees for something that won't sell. Instead, I went to town and cleaned out my closet yet again. I then called my neighbor who is a few years younger than I and has 2 daughters and gave the clothes to them.
Here is what I cleaned out..
Yep, FOUR LARGE trash bags full to the brim with clothes I either never wore or only wore a handful of times.. Sad isn't it?
I left myself with only the clothing I KNOW I will wear and have worn many times..
As you can see I still have plenty of clothes. The winter clothes are in the back and all the summer tops are from the middle to the front. Excuse the handbag mess on top. That will be the next thing I clean out..
Next is only the pants and jean I wear
The bag rack going across is all my sweat suits and winter coats and sweatshirt jackets.
And in the front are my dresses I wear along with some lightweight sweaters for when it's really cold in church or somewhere else because the air conditioning no matter where you go is always blasting.. I usually wear mostly dresses in the summer. It gets so hot here in the South that for me dresses are the lightest and the easiest thing to wear on hot sticky humid days..
Then I did a tiny bit of freezer cooking. Since it's only the Man I don't have to cook much. This meat loaf will give me three dinners for him and the meat balls I will get 4 dinners out of..
And the cake? Eh, that was just because I love the Man..
German Chocolate cake with Chocolate icing.
Pretty nice dinner eh?
T'was a busy day but a productive one..
