Goodbye Old Friends, Updated second time


Yes, I am home and one of the things I set as a goal for Jan 2010 is to "muck out" my bedroom which has become a catch all space for whatever.
Part of the problem is all the clothes that I never wear or so seldom wear that I forget I have them. LOL I am betting many of you have the same thing happen in your closet! Today I started the process of discarding many of the things that no longer work for me.
I have been loosing weight...slowly but steady since May of 09 and the old faithfuls that have been hanging around are not only looking old but also no longer fit very well. Thankfully they are too big now.
There are many things great about loosing weight. You feel better, people say you look better (and I have to agree) and other things. but kind of a sad part is where you have to get rid of some of your old faithful outfits that you love. Of course much of my clothing is the flexible kind LOL You know they manage to fit when I am larger and smaller with the miracle of spandex and knits but eventually they just look not so good.
Here is the first result of some sorting with more to come. I will miss several of the things in that pile but can't wait to get some new stuff to replace them LOL...I wonder what is on QVC today?

UPDATE:
I now have two piles of clothes and still sorting LOL Even Mr Creative thinks it is time to get rid of his stuff and he NEVER wants to do that!

UPDATE 2: the piles are huge and before I give them away I have decided to weigh them. I think most of the oldies are out and I will weigh and donate next week!

Congrats on the weight loss! Time to celebrate---out with the old and in with the new. You mentioned QVC....love it! Did you know you can buy the same stuff you see on QVC on eBay for less? Check out www.cheaperthanonair.com; I think you will like it.
Have a super day & happy cleaning-out!

Yeah! That might even encourage me to get busy on my own set of old faithfuls. Unfortunately I haven't lost the weight just need to clean out! Good luck to you!
