I started thinking about all the reasons why I did keep a closet full of clothes that I don’t wear…
I paid a lot of money for these clothes!
I wasn’t ready to just give them away. Clothes aren’t cheap, and each article in there was carefully picked out at a store and purchased with my hard earned money. Giving it away felt like throwing money down the toilet!
Once I finally lose those 10lbs I will be able to wear it again!
I loved the clothes I was able to wear pre-children, when I was 10 pounds lighter. I know that I will lose that weight again someday, then I will be able to wear all my old clothes again! Plus, I need that extra motivation staring at me to lose those last few baby pounds.
What if I have an occasion come up where I will need to wear this?
We all have those clothes in our closet that aren’t everyday wear clothes, but just in case an occasion comes up that affords you the opportunity to wear them, it’s hard to part with it! What if I get invited to a last minute cock tail party, and I don’t have the perfect dress to wear?
I realized that although all my reasons were pretty valid, there is still no excuse to keep a closet full of clothes that I couldn’t immediately wear. For Pete’s sake, it was causing me to have an adult sized tantrum that surely would have gotten my three year old put in time out for! That is just not a good look, and no way to start a morning!! Also, I’m pretty sure if I had anymore of those my husband would have me committed for crazy lady behavior!
