doing the deed

So my bedroom currently looks like a Merchandising floor as I'm Spring cleaning and making piles and piles of clothes that I no longer wear.. One of the things I dislike the most is getting rid of clothes.

At one point I invested my money in that purchase, was so excited about it and envisioned myself wearing it.. and wham bag, wuddddyaknow it's three years later and the piece is sitting unworn in the back of my closet.

So maybe that doesn't happen to everything I own, but I always feel bad about cleaning out my closet thinking to myself.. oh maybe when I lose 20 pounds I'll wear it! Or this would be so cute if I only had this belt/cardigan. But there comes a time when my closet is about to burst and I have to do the deed..

Now, I donate my fair share of pieces to Goodwill.. don't get me wrong, but more than half of the things in my wardrobe have been worn only once or twice and are in brand spankin' new condition. And when it's a Free People dress or a pair of True Religions, I just don't feel right about donating it to charity.


Is that so wrong of me? Ha, these pieces still have a lottttta wearing to do.. So I figure, why not put my closet up for sale?

I've started a blog page for my closet

and i'm slowly adding things to

I can so relate, I have the same dilemma all the time. I always seem to buy pieces that I never end up wearing and then it's such a waste of money, but atleast you're doing something about it. Good luck with your e-shop :)
