Switching the season's clothes, that is!
Since tomorrow is the first day of Spring, I decided to get rid of all those dark, heavy clothes and switch out to sandals and lighter weight clothes.
The above photo was the beginning of the process. It was an ugly scene with clothes EVERY WHERE before I was done. Oh, and this took four hours.........
Through it all, Velcro never moved from "her" spot on the end of the bed. Even when I was dropping large plastic bins from the cabinet above the closet. She's still there!
A woman with one closet is a frustrated woman. I've been relatively clever by having my bed higher then usual so I can store those lower bins under the bed. Taller ones are in the cabinet above the ONE closet. Hence the need to switch out clothes twice a year.
I didn't know twelve years ago when I downsized from well over 2000 sq. ft. to 1000 sq. ft and ONE closet that I was at the beginning of a trend - simplifying and downsizing. It does require ingenuity, I promise.
It also keeps me from acquiring a lot. Now, others would disagree with that statement, but, I do get rid of things semi-annually. If I didn't wear something in the previous season or its totally worn out after many, many years of wear, it goes. I have a huge pile on the stairwell to haul up to put in a bag and
give to Josefina, the maid tomorrow.
I'm NOW truly ready for Spring! I can feel all the men out there reading this just shaking their heads.
