I confess the thought of something new is highly appealing. The worst thing I can do is sign up to a store’s mailing list, sure enough as soon as it arrives I’ll be checking out what I want and either buy online or be in-store within days.
In recent weeks I’ve actually gotten annoyed by these email lists, some brands were emailing me two or three times a day. I put up with this for about a month before finally unsubscribing from them and all their partner brands in one foul sweep; instantly I could feel a sense of calm settling upon me.
Though these emails disappeared my habits did not, and the credit card keeps getting a bashing, at least it’s paid off fortnightly so nothing to worry about there. Clothing is my weakness, as my wardrobe groaning under the weight of yet another garment wonders where this latest addition, or few, might fit.
I’d been promising myself to throw out more clothing I wasn’t wearing on a regular basis, last year I did this in a big way as I sought to replace my entire wardrobe with new styles and brands (and smaller sizes!).
Set to task this morning, after buying yet again, I finally attacked the walk-in-robe. To my amazement there were still a few of my former sized garments in there, somehow I’d missed these in last year’s cull. Then I looked at those shirts and jackets I’d bought in the past year that I just rarely wore or no longer liked, you’re off to St Vinnies.
Next, I decided I’d organise by colour. I thought I had more frankly than I did. For a guy whose wardrobe used to consist of black, white and dark shades I’m doing great nowadays, but old habits die hard. It’s mostly the tees I’ve got in colours, it’s nice to see everything arranged. I’m yet to tackle my pants, heaven help me, I need so much more space 😭 I need a Joanna Gaines home makeover 😄 a guy can dare to dream, can’t he?
