Will spring cleaning bring spring???

February 9th, 2011 at 09:50 pm

At home sick again today. My cough and nose are still annoying, but overall feeling better, and my attitude has definitely improved.. Smile
So I decided to actually get out of bed and be a little productive today. I put away all of my 2010 papers that were in my file, took them all out, stapled everything together and put it in my long term file. Also stapled together all of the 2010 tax papers and put them in the long term file too.
Then I tackled my bedroom which was a total disaster. I had clothes everywhere. I am NOT good at putting away my laundry. Frown So I spent a good 3 hours folding clothes and organizing my closet. I will admit, I am a clothes horder. I find all kinds of reasons to keep clothes that don't fit me, or that I haven't worn in years. I could probably purge 50% of my closet and not notice. Well I couldn't bring myself to do that, but I did get some things pulled out.
I threw away a cardigan that was my favorite cardigan for work when I worked at JCP (in 1999!), it had a hole in the shoulder seam, my favorite jeans from highschool that I have had patched at least 3 times and have a hole in the crotch again...and a belt, also from when I worked at JCP and it was cheapy and the backing was completely unglued.
I found several things to put in the rummage sale, 2 pairs of sweatpants, 7 shirts, 2 tanktops, 2 bras, 1 book, and 1 carabiner (which I found in my bra drawer...have no idea where that came from??).
Being productive definitely helps me feel better when I am feeling sick. When you lay around all day then you just feel worthless and that makes me feel worse. So I am glad I got something done today!

    I'm feeling pretty sick as well, but clearly I am not as motivated as you are. I'll take lying around, thank you very much!

    I do understand the clothes thing. I spent years building a lovely wardrobe only to have it wrecked by childbirth (kids are 2 and 1 now). I finally admitted I would never again be shaped the same and took everything to consignment. It was hard to let it go, but it's much less depressing than looking in my closet at a bunch I am no longer long and lean enough to wear.

    I am currently building my strategy for a wardrobe for the next phase of my life, by reading Style on a Shoestring, How to be a Budget Fashionista, and One Hundred Pieces by Nina Garcia. All very helpful!
