Today's assignment was to group my clothes into 5 piles. Luckily I had less than 5. Since I work in apparel I'm always seeing new trends I need and getting tired of old ones so I rotate pretty well. And if something needs mending I generally realize it at work where we have sewing supplies and I can do it right away. Also, I love crafting so I have tons of piles of clothes to repurpose... I know I just admitted to piles, I will deal with those another day! Not today!
The 5 piles of unworn clothes per the wise Tortoise & Lady Grey are:
1. Clothes that need mending
2. Clothes that can be re-purposed
3. Clothes to be re-fitted
4. Clothes that are sentimental or for special occasions
5. Clothes to give away
I felt a little better after realizing I didn't make the 5 piles and they weren't too bad!... my new year's resolution was to clean things out of the house so I already tackled my giant collection of sweater and t-shirts (that was a project!). My main problem I was avoiding was sentimental or special occasion items. I had a few re-purposed plans but with my craft ADD that might be another problem I need to address. And the last pile was the clothes to give away. Some of my piles crossed over but I'm committed to having a cleaner closet and life so it's time to let go. Most of the sentimental ones I realized I have photographs of me wearing them so they will not be forgotten!
