As winter is leaving and spring is upon the horizon, I am feeling so motivated to do some spring cleaning. One thing that has plagued my mind is my closet. I feel like I have to clean it out too much. I'm not purging like I need to. So I'm challenging myself to a deep closet clean out. For the remaining winter weeks I am going to challenge myself to only wear those items I have never worn and/or items I have not worn in a year. Whatever items I don't wear will be donated to a local women's shelter (Please leave any suggestions of women's shelters in the Chicagoland area in the comments).
I have realized that I have grown a real attachment to my clothes. I call them my babies and I love them. I love my clothes, they are so fly! So I tend to have seperation anxiety when it is time to clean out my closet. But as I think of the ladies in my family that have influenced my love of clothes and style, I realize that they always gave away clothes without hesitation.
I can remember in particular my great aunt (my grandma's sister) would always give her clothes away to her nieces often. I remember when she gave me two of her vintage Fendi purses. A clutch with a detachable strap and a satchel bag. I was so shocked and thrilled she gave me these dope vintage bags. So it makes me think of the feeling I had to receive nice garments and it motivates me now to want to pass that same feeling along to someone else.
So the challenge is on! Stay THRIFTY...
