Anyone else like how for the Closet Clean Out posts I put a picture of a ridiculously unattainable closet? Me too. Anyway.
This time last year I was making post after post about my after Christmas shopping. It was shortly after that I decided to do the Closet Clean Out. The only real purpose to Closet Clean Out was to better utilize all the things I already have and not just accumulate items without integrating them into my wardrobe.
Easier said than done.
I wouldn't have said I really felt like I made a lot of progress until I realized it was the first of the year... and I don't have 2 weeks worth of posts about shopping to do. I haven't quit shopping, of course. Not at all (pretty obvious if you read often). But I do stop and think about how much I need something and how much I want it. It's a balance I haven't completely figured out but I have figured out you have to mix the 2 somehow. Do I need a drawer full of eyeshadow? Nope, not at all, but I love it and use it, so I'm just careful now about what I add to it.
Am I the only one who struggles with this? Anyone else been doing their own version of this, and have you made any progress? One thing that really, surprisingly helped was doing 30 for 30 last year. I might try to do another version of that sometime this year. I'll have to think about that now...
