Spring Cleaning!

everything organized by color, sleeve length and style

ahhh - there's nothing like a clean closet!

the stuff I'm getting rid of

Doug's side

Everyone who knows me knows that I have a little shopping problem. One of the main reasons that I bought my house was because of the enourmous master closet. I thought to myself, "Now that's the closet for me!" Since I love clothes and shoes so much, I go through my stuff every 3 months or so and sell it on ebay or give it to Goodwill. As I write this, the back corner of my office has been taken over with clothes that I need to sell on ebay that have been there since before Christmas.

Well, about three weeks ago, I noticed that our master bedroom was starting to feel a bit cluttered and discovered that it was because I didn't have any more room in my drawers or closet for all my stinkin' clothes! So I decided to go through everything and get rid of some more stuff. Anyway, I ended up with about 6 piles of clothes to get rid of and several purses, shoes and other crap. I've decided that for every pair of new shoes that I buy, I have to get rid of a pair and the same for jeans. Hopefully, that will help me keep everything in check!

At least for now, my closet is back to normal and fabulously organized!! Now, I just have to work on Doug's side :)

I am so glad to hear that someone else has the same shopping disease that I do. I can't seem to let go of the old clothes though and my closet is no where near as large as yours. You should see the tiny little corner I allow Matt to use.

I like how Doug's "side" consists of part of one side!!
You have taken over. Tell Keegan Hi from us!

oh my goodness that closet is the size of my bedroom. The first step to fixing a problem is acknowledging you have one Mieke. ha. Feel free to send the goodwill purses to Rhode Island Gooch foundation!!

Dude all I can say is, I want a phone call the next time you're getting rid of jeans.

I am so glad to read that I am not the only women out there that sorts by length, color, style and more. Eric always laughs at me.

Wish I would have known about your sale. I need a new purse or two.
