Today I did something that was both frightening and liberating!

I went through my closet and got rid of all of the clothes that are too big.

I have always heard you should do this, but in the past, that has always been too scary!

My reasoning....clothes are expensive and what if I put the weight back on....I will NEED those!

Guess that is the point of getting rid of them right?  If your clothes don't quite fit, you have two options:

  1. spend a small fortune to buy more
  2. work hard until the clothes feel comfy again
After I cleaned out the closet and bagged it all up...I went RIGHT to the computer to list them.  I knew if I put it off, that it would never get done.

I had a reply within half an hour and at that point, there was no turning back and I was committed!

It's going to be nice to not have those items taking up space!


  1. Congrats! That is a great idea, I am going to have to bag clothes when I get to that point. I bet it was an awesome feeling. Keep up the great work!

  2. I'm a little behind on my blog-reading. I am so very happy for you!!! I have not yet gotten to this step, but have saved space by buying those vacuum bags for sweaters and quilts and stuff and using those for some of my big-girl clothes.

    I hope you keep on losing those inches!! So proud of you my friend!! :) :)
