Closets, now with more breathing room!

So...I haven't fallen off of the 31 day series yet ;)

Last night I tackled my closet; just spent about 20 min, my goal is not to burn out, but to finish this project.

After 20 minutes I had two piles , one for the trash and one for a future garage sale*.

garage sale items to the left, trash to the right...clutter be gone!

As I am currently 8 months pregnant, I'm not wearing a good portion of my wardrobe.
Totally made getting rid of stuff that much easier.
Too small pre-pregnancy? Out.
Ripped, stained, needs mending? Out.
Shoes too tight/worn? Out.
That pair of boots I've been meaning to have repaired for 3 years? Out.

the random paint stick is in the trash pile! and yep, i buy all of my shoes at tj maxx ;)

I don't fix clothes, maybe I will in the future, but for now I don't.
I'm choosing to live in the now.

So I have more room for my stuff, and more free hangers.
I was totally going to buy more hangers...now I don't need to.

I also found a stack of books under my hanging shirts...that explains why all of my shirts have strange creases and they don't move along the closet rod very well.
Half the books are going. Yes!
The rest are finding a new home.

And tonight?
Tonight I vacuum the closet. Yes!

Hope you are having a great Tuesday!
Anyone else recently purge their closets?

*Garage sale...it's like a dirty word around here. I think I might have my post topic for tomorrow...

Boy, that paint stick is certainly one neat piece of wood. :)

I tried to purge my closet when my mom and sister were here is this weekend. They talked me out of everything except 2 shirts. I'm going to have to do it again. I thought they would be helpful....
