My Decluttering 2011 project has gone into overdrive, now that we’re moving.
(I didn’t know we would be moving when I vowed to get rid of 2,011 things this year.)
Pictured above in the back of my Chevy HHR, is a significant portion of the walk-in closet in our master bedroom. Four years ago, we moved all of these clothes to this house. Now, some of them actually did fit us then … but many, many, many of them did not. We were holding onto them because “maybe someday we would fit into them again.” (You understand how that game goes, right?)
Instead, they damn near barely fit into my car. As you can see, I needed the front seat, too. A lot of them still have the dry cleaning tags on them. (If you’re in the market for an HHR and are wondering how much the back can hold, now you know.) Here’s what was donated to Goodwill yesterday:
9 men’s suits
22 men’s dress pants
29 men’s dress shirts
3 men’s blazers
3 women’s suits
5 women’s blouses
1 knit dress
4 women’s blazers
3 women’s dress pants
Pretty much all of these items are professional work clothes, so I hope they will help someone out. There were two completely full trash bags of the kids clothes underneath this load, too, but I didn’t itemize them. I just grabbed them in order to get them out of the house.
