Simplify Saturday

Today I tackled my wardrobe.

Although I am currently under my pre-pregnancy weight (thank you, breastfeeding), many of my clothes still don’t fit, due to changes in my body. I decided that now that Oscar is a year old, these clothes are never going to fit, and it’s time to let them go. Hanging on to clothes that don’t fit creates a kind of psychic weight for me that I want to be rid of. Some people find this motivating, but for me it’s a burden.

So I ruthlessly paired down my clothing, asking myself the following questions:

  • Does it fit?
  • Does it flatter?
  • Do I love it?
  • Do I wear it regularly?

I took several bags of clothes to Goodwill, and now my closet and dresser feel so much lighter. I feel lighter too!

Last week I organized Oscar’s toys.
