this quote has been absolutely true so many times, much to James’ frustration. I’ll have spent all this time making our bedroom presentable, and then in less than 5 minutes of trying to decide what to wear, it’ll look like a tornado just ran right through it. as funny as this quote is, I’ve been on a bit of a downsizing tear lately, and I’ve focused a lot of attention on my closet. over the past few months, I’d say that I’ve cleaned out at least 4 IKEA bags of clothes/shoes/random things from our closet/apartment. this past weekend I filled up another one, and by the time I’m done tonight, I’m sure another one will have been filled. I’m a little embarrassed by how much stuff there is, but seeing the growing pile just makes me more ruthless with what stays. my goal is to get my closet down to something like 100 pieces of clothing, counting all seasons. my summer clothes are at a healthy 45 pieces. the winter clothing has been a little harder to pare down because there’s just so much more of it, but I’m determined to get it done. wish me luck!
