this could be a post about chopping off my locks. or culling the geese that have taken up residence across the street. however, it is not.
this is about trying to take control of (our) bedroom. because, it’s overflowing. rachel is generally fairly organized, so i peaked around her blog a bit for tips on organization before tackling the room. namely, what i was tackling was my dresser and the closet. specifically, the mountains of clothing that have piled up.
four piles: keeping, keeping-but-not-in-season*, consignment, garbage.
most of it went into keeping or consignment. there was a lot of trying on.
a girl i went to high school with, she claimed to collect underwear. 365 pair, she claimed to have had. my t-shirt collection was getting awfully close. i had about forty. now, i have fifteen.
it feels much more sane, organized and generally reasonable in this room.
i’m not contending with forty different t-shirts in the morning, for one thing.
*i’m not convinced about this season business, given that it was 70F/21C all last week.
