Starting Out With a Bang

Doesn’t it feel good when you go away and only have the few items you packed…you don’t have all of your stuff so getting ready or putting things away only takes moments?

I recently went away and when I returned I missed how easy it was to focus and do things when I didn’t have all of my “stuff” around me. That inspired me to do a major declutter of clothes.

I had clothes going back more for more than 10 years that I kept because they were too nice to get rid of or I thought I would wear again when I lost weight.

I lost recently weight and though there were some items I was happy to get back into, I wasn’t interested in most of it anymore. For example, I had a dozen skirts and I couldn’t tell you the last time I wore one of them. I also had tons of dresses.

So I decided to get rid of anything I couldn’t just put on and be happy in immediately with a few exceptions. I did keep a few casual dresses and probably too many fancier dresses. They might get cut in the next round of decluttering. But I ended up getting rid of 2/3 of my clothes!

This resulted in eliminating five Walmart sized shopping bags of clothes. After doing this I watched a Minimal Mom video – This is Brand New Information – and was inspired to do the Mins Game this month which led the next step which I talk about in the video below.

Mins Game: Day 1

If you are interested in doing the Mins game too too feel free to comment below and maybe we can motivate each other.
