Today turned out to be the girl's day out for a big sale. My friend R and I were at the point that the clothes we have been wearing for years just weren't cutting it anymore for work. Both of us have jobs that require us to look and act professional most of the time. Some of the time we are just at our desks taking care of paperwork and can get away with the khaki pants sweaters and clogs, but today we were on the hunt for professional/career clothes.
However, after watching Oprah's show yesterday on hoarding, ( check out Balancing Motherhood for a good blog post about the show), I now have another task. With the two pairs of shoes and one pair of boots that I bought, I have to take two- three pairs of shoes that I haven't worn in a year or more and donate them. For the couple of shirts that I picked up, there are a few in the closet that are going on over 10 years old, time to move em on out.
Have any of you ever tried this method of equalizing what comes in, with what goes out? With an impending move within five years, I am become more aware of the stuff in my house by the day.
