Two More Bags

I am not a shopper.  I've never been a clothes horse.  I like my comfortable things, and I tend to be pretty clueless about current fashion trends.  When I find something that I like, that fits, that feels comfortable and easy to wear, I tend to keep it darn near forever.


I had a pair of brown, flat, ankle-high boots when he and I first met.  I loved them.  They were soft and comfortable...  and well worn.  I think I'd had them for probably 10 years at that point.  That was 12 years ago.  Every time I put them on, he fussed because, they were pretty pathetic I guess. But they were my brown boots, and I held on to them fiercely.  Finally, about 3 years ago, he bought me a pair of brown Frye boots.  They are very nice boots, and while they are not flat, the heels are reasonable.  I like them, and I did, eventually, let my old brown boots go.  But I am just like that.

My closet is just full of old, faded, well-worn, and much loved stuff. But tonight, I resumed my bag challenge from earlier in the summer.  I waded into the closet, and peeled out all the old, too tight, too short-wasted, too faded, too frayed tops and sweaters.  Not pants or dresses or jackets.  Those will have to wait for another time.  Just tops tonight.  When I was done, I had two more bags of tops to be thrown out or sent on to the second-hand store.

I'm not done with closet thinning, but this was a good start.  That brings the bag challenge total to 39.  I'm thinking I will make that 40 bag mark and then some by the time I head back to school on the 19th.


  1. awesome. Every time you post one of these it inspires me. And I know there are others who feel the same way. And we do need all the inspiration we can get on this.


  2. LOL, Soume -- I am not sure what it says about my life OR yours, that this business of thinning out the endless supply of unnecessary junk is "inspirational."
