The Annual Wardrobe Clearout

Does anyone else get the urge to have a good wardrobe clearance at this time of year.  Perhaps it is the sunny weather we have been having but de-cluttering the closet is uppermost on my mind.  How is it that I accumulate so much stuff when I have hardly bought anything new for the last 12 months.  If I am honest, I find having  a lot of clothes a burden - I would rather have a few good things that I feel happy in.  So, out with the overwashed T-shirts, the bobbly jumpers, the skirts that are a bit too tight or too long or too short, the same for trousers.  Out with the shoes that don't really go with anything, too high, too flat, too old.  Out with the jackets that don't quite fasten or are too big, the sleeves too long or too short.  And do you know what - it feels good.

My lifestyle doesn't call for fancy clothes

 I prefer something more practical - this is more the sort of thing I would go for

Of course, all the above pictures are a fantasy collection of clothes that I would love to own, but never will.

On the upside I do have two bin bags full of unwanted clothes waiting to go to the charity shop, and more space on my hanging rails and shelves -  and a feeling of satisfaction of a job well done. 

All I have to do now is start filling it up again.
