Operation Simplification: Closet

Today, I'm tackling my closet. It's a very small closet and it really has no right to hold so many clothes.
See how awful the floor of this closet looks? My closet is like my junk drawer. Things I don't know what to do with go there...You see that white bag on the top? That's my $600 wedding dress smushed in a corner!

I need to get rid of the dress still has pit, sweat and food stains from the wedding. I think I may just have to throw it out because I'm never gonna wear it again. Whenever El Hubster looks at our wedding pictures he's always like, "That's you're doppelganger because it sure as hell wasn't you!"  That's what I get for trying to look glamorous on my wedding day..... I'll save my veil though because I loved it!
You can see that the closet doesn't extend very far. I discovered that I am the queen of cardigans. I LOVE CARDIGANS. I couldn't bring myself to get rid of them because they are so versatile.
Here's some of what I ended up getting rid of. I don't know why I have so many black and white clothes....El Hubster calls them moo in Cow....I wore that sparkly top once to a New Year's Eve party 2 or 3 years ago and haven't worn it since. I will never buy a sparkly top again. I'm embarassed that I even bought it. That moo looking thing is what I wore to a fancy date when El Hubster and I first started 2006! Haven't worn it since....Mooooooooooooooo.
Here are my shoes. I own very little shoes in the first place but there were still a few casualties...
Every one of these shoes was super uncomfortable to wear but I couldn't let them go...until now.

I wish I could say my closet looked a whole lot different since the clean out but the closet was so small to begin with that the only progress is that the hangers slide a little easier on the rod..Ha!  

Also I cleaned up most of the junky floor. The pink bag holds my winter clothes, the white bag is knitting yarn, the blue bag are leftover wedding supplies from the last and only wedding I coordinated, the iron is...the iron.
Trust me....this is a HUGE improvement!


  1. Aww! I'm glad you still have your wedding dress. It makes me feel better about having mine! lol. No idea what to do with it but I just can't get rid of it.
    They make closets these days to fit a woman's style. We have a shared closet and it's literally screaming for help!

    1. Hubster and I used to have a shared closet and it was horrible because he has way more clothes than I do and his stuff took up most of it. It led to a lot of bickering because I cant stand clutter. I'm one of those people who needs to see everything clean in order to be

  2. I have my dress too! It currently resides in one of those big old "keepsake" boxes in the cleaners. I have no idea why I'm keeping it, although I've toyed with having it fashioned into a new dress if we ever renew our vows.

    I'm not really into clothes/shoes. Maybe because I'm not really into my body? I don't know. I need to purge! I'll add it to the list, LOL

    1. Oh my actually got it cleaned?! You're way ahead of the game :-) I'm not much into fashion myself...and like you I was never really into my body so maybe that's the reason why. I love watching fashion reality shows though...and i turn to Hubster and say...that's cool, I would wear that...and he just rolls his eyes. I think I have to be less lazy to buy clothes. Purge! Purge! Purge!
