Going through my clothes

It took until last week, once taxes were done, but I finally went through my clothes again.  I actually feel like I just did this, but it was months ago and since I have a small closet and not a lot of room for clothes storage, it fills up fast.

I always start out with the best intentions, but that wanes while I go through things so I actually think decluttering is -- at least for me -- best done in short spurts.

I always start out by pulling off several things with a rather cutthroat attitude.  Then I start thinking of things with some fondness, and then I start thinking, "Well, it wouldn't hurt to keep this just in case..."  Before long, I'm saying that to everything, no matter how long it's been since I've worn it.

Then I know it's time to stop going through things, call it a day, and do another short burst another day.  My short bursts are sometimes longer and sometimes shorter, depending on how attached I am to what I'm going through.  Going through my pajamas, for example, is more difficult.  I love pajamas.

I'll probably go through my clothes one or two more times, and then go through everything, catalog it, blog about it, and donate it.  And after that's done, I'm going to start trying to get rid of something every day again, as this blog was originally intended for.  That level of awareness, organization, and cleanliness is something I think I really need in my life.
