Clothing dilemma solved!

5 Mar

I decided to take the most expensive pair of jeans back to Macy’s, and keep the cheaper pair.  THEN, I went to Target on Thursday and found 4 pair of pants (okay, they were cropped – too chilly to wear them right now, will they still fit by summer?) for the (almost) price of the jeans I took back!

THEN, yesterday I went ‘shopping’ and got a whole new wardrobe for F-R-E-E!  Yes, that’s right.  Late last week, I suddenly remembered I had at least 2 space bags full of clothes tucked under the bed.  (You know, the kind where you use the vaccuum to suck out all the extra air?)  Well, these bags were packed with clothes when we moved from Los Angeles 5 years ago!  I hadn’t looked at them since.

Consequently, many of them seemed new to me.  Honestly, a few items I didn’t even remember.  Here are the clothes piled up and ready to try on…

It was such a great find – and fun!  I’m not sure I’m going to keep everything yet, BUT, I ended up with 15 shirts 6 skirts and 7 pair of pants.  Needless to say, today was ALL about laundry.  It kind of looks like a clothing shop in here right now.  But all well worth it.

 

While I was at it, I also decided to get rid of the things that were too big.

So, great progress was made today.  And, I feel so good about having new things to wear that fit better than the things I gave away.  I must also mention here how awesome(er) my husband is…I started the laundry parade this morning, and then had to go out and run errands.  He kept the washing duties up while I was gone.  So helpful!  Yet another reason to love him as I do.

BTW…I ended up keeping one Target pair of pants and taking the rest back.  Don’t need them now…what a victory!
