This year has seen many changes for me, none more than my shedding many kilos, necessitating a complete replacement of my wardrobe. And no sooner had I replaced my wardrobe and I was replacing it again, in total I’ve donated fourteen large bags of clothes this year with perhaps a few more yet to be bagged.
It has been cathartic my losing weight and disposing of the old me clothes, sort of like the snake that sheds its skin. For all the clothes I’ve donated I have also replaced and I think bought more, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with buying in stores denied me in the past. This has meant I’ve exceeded the capacity of my walk in robe, and clothes were being stored in large plastic containers.
I’d have stopped in my IKEA drawers, however I had papers and trinkets from many years of travel clogging these up, such a waste of space. On the weekend I purchased a dresser to replace the IKEA drawers and started examining how I might go about decluttering my bedroom, as this really does lead to stress as soon as I enter the room.
A majority of those trinkets, some I couldn’t remember purchasing will be disposed of as bin room allows, I never look at these and they hold zero sentimental value. The papers I was storing can be scanned and stored digitally going forward, the physical item recycled unless it needs be retained.
I think breaking my clothes shopping habit may be a tad harder, I awoke this morning at 3:30am and was on the Calvin Klein website buying items, Internet shopping can be a course as much as it is a convenience.
