Purge pile

This is this week's purge pile. I say this week's because last week there was another one.

My little family is moving... again. But, but, but you just got here!

I know. But we are looking for another house to fit our needs in the same area.

Bottom line, Mama isn't moving all this stuff again. So I am implementing my love it or lose it policy. If I don't absolutely love something in my closet I am getting rid of it.

If I don't like the way it looks, feels or hangs on me I am getting rid of it. If it is too big, it goes. If it is too small - it goes. If it makes me look like a shlumdinka, it's out of here.

I recently read this post from one of my favorite blogs, Simple Organized Living. She goes in to detail about what should NOT be in your closet. And guess what? I had all of those things in mine. So, I've implemented some of these things in my life. If I bring stuff in to my home, that means I have to get rid of some things.

For me, I have decided that I can't hang on to clothes that no longer fit because I am sentimental. The bonus is, I can also bless someone else with my clothes I no longer wear. 

I am a plus size girl. Plus size clothes are costly and if I can give my good outfits, I no longer wear, to someone who can benefit from them and feel fabulous when she slips on a pair of super cute trouse jeans then I am blessed too.

But at the same time I recognize that I hand onto things other people might not, like my 7 black cardigan sweaters. Why do I have so many of them? Because I love them and I wear them. If I didn't wear all of them there would be no point in getting rid of them.

So I challenge you all this week to grab a garbage bag and get to purging. It will make you feel so much better.
