Good bye skinny pants

Saturday, September 07, 2013

I got sick of feeling sorry for myself and decided to try a spell of grumpy instead. The thing I like about being in a bad mood is that there is no excuse for not doing something you are not looking forward to. Being in a particularly entrenched funk, I decided to do something I have successfully avoided my entire life. I culled my entire wardrobe. I saved a very few sentimental pieces but was otherwise brutal. Suits from the 80s sweaters with shoulder pads size small rompers and on and on. I even got rid of the beautiful baby pink outfit I wore for my father's funeral. To top it all off, I am throwing away my skinny jeans with the big rip across the butt as soon as I hit post. Good bye!

    Congratulations in turning that funk into something productive. Now, see if you have a Facebook online yardsale page in your area and get money for those culled items. Talk about a double reward! If not, enjoy carrying all those usable items to a donation bin. I love doing that! emoticon

    Way to go! Sometimes that is what it takes. I have done this a few times especially after having kids. I don't know if my hips will ever get back down to a size 8 but if they do I can buy size 8 pants when I get there instead of them taking up the space I don't have for them right now.
