My closet’s quest for its authentic self?

October 3, 2007

According to Tim Gunn, my closet is having an identity crisis.    He suggests a thorough analysis and pruning of its contents.   I have dreaded this task and this blog is one way for me to be accountable to do it.

I promised in an earlier post, that I would provide a snapshot of how big my closet really is.    Keep in mind that I have only one side!   My husband gets (some) of the opposite wall.   Part of that side is shelves for my crap that should also be thrown away:   hair curlers, my 4 curling irons, bits & pieces of old/extra cosmetics, TP, sunscreens, soap, and, etc etc etc ad naseum.

Give Away/Throw Away

I will be ruthless and non-sentimental.    I promise to NOT get bogged down in the process of HOW to do this and veer off-stream by attempting to photo or write down lists of what I’m tossing into any pile.   I will JUST DO IT.
