A good article to read...  
I came across this article in Reader's Digest today and it reminded me of a lot of people I know and have known. I thought some of y'all might want to read it. It's about our tendencies to clutter. And for those of you who just like quiz/meme content, they also have a quiz.

I hope the article helps someone. No one specific, but that's my goal.

I would say that you could go through your closet and of it is not flattering, getting old, or too big/small you should get rid of it..

I could probably get rid of a few less flattering things, but it's hard since I can layer a lot of them. As for things too big, I LOVE wearing things too big. I tend to occasionally buy things specifically because they ARE too big.

Yeah, I'm really bad and avoidant about the clothes thing. I also do the whole "I can't give it away because _________ gave it to me" thing, too. The only thing that really helps me get rid of things is when I stain them. If there's even a tiny stain I se it and feel it every time I wear it. I suppose I should be more sloppy in my eating.

It's funny to look back on those paragraphs and see my avoidance excuses.

And yeah, I've got the "it's too cool to get rid of" thing, too. I need to clean out the spare closets so I can move my less day to day stuff out.

I really like having one closet for my just washed and often worn stuff....plus this gives me some place to put the clean clothes instead of leaving them hanging on the iron rack in the laundry room and blocking the door....I used to have to rearrange my whole closet just to put the clean stuff away.....

But one time this was kind of cool. Because the door in that room did not used to seal very well, and one day I needed a shirt so I was flipping through the clothes and on one of the shirts clinging to the fabric nice and warm (beginning of winter) was a copper colored baby aligator lizard.... I was raising baby anloes at the time, so I put him in an old aquarium and put some tiny crickets in it and he ate them....so I raized him too through the winter then let him go....I just love babies!
