{Day 30} Dresser - 31 Days of De-Hoarding

Welcome to day 30 of 31 Days of De-Hoarding!

{Day 30} Dresser - 31 Days of De-Hoarding #write31days #dehoarding

I know you guys were feeling sorry for me the other day when you saw how few shirts I have hanging in my closet.

Let's check out my dresser shall we?

We seem to have a problem in this house with drawers.  Many of them seem to have some sort of closing malfunction.

Every one of those t-shirts is precious to me and I couldn't possibly part with any of them!!

{Day 29} Chest of Drawers - 31 Days of De-Hoarding

Welcome to Day 29 of 31 Days of De-Hoarding!

{Day 29} Chest of Drawers - 31 Days of De-Hoarding #write31days #dehoarding

Oh, my goodness.  We are so close to the end.  So very close.  Like you probably wouldn't even notice if I just procrastinated the day away and never even worked on today's project.  Right?




The Chest of Drawers, or Lingerie Chest, or whatever you call that tall thingy in my room with a bunch of drawers.

Whatever you call it, I just love it.  So many little drawers to fill with stuff!

But again, I told myself this was not really going to be that big a project.  I have been pretty good about de-hoarding these drawers recently.  Not that much stuff in them.

Oh, you noticed the sock drawer up there on top.  Not shut is it?

Maybe I could let go of a few socks.

{Day 28} Closet - 31 Days of De-Hoarding

Welcome to day 28 of 31 Days of De-Hoarding!

{Day 28} Closet - 31 Days of De-Hoarding #write31days #dehoarding

I have actually been pretty good lately about de-hoarding my wardrobe.

Or so I told myself as I headed to my closet.

I have recently lost weight and have found it much easier to de-hoard clothing that is too big than it was for me to de-hoard clothing that is too small.

See, with clothing that is too small, I always tell myself that one day I will wear it again.  I don't want to give myself that safety net with the too big clothing!

Interestingly enough, the only time in my life that my hoarding has actually paid off has been in my "too small" clothes.

I am now actually wearing the clothes I have hoarded away for years.  Does it justify all those years of storing them, of moving them from place to place?  Probably not.

Luckily, I had forced myself to go through them over and over again and get rid of everything that wasn't an absolute favorite.

Which means once I fit into those clothes again I was left with an unintentional "capsule wardrobe" of only my favorite things.

Which was a good thing because I was still losing weight and really didn't want to go out and buy a new wardrobe to wear for a short time until I shrunk out of it.

And I can finally understand the concept of a capsule wardrobe.

{Day 27} Nightstand - 31 Days of De-Hoarding

Welcome to Day 27 of 31 Days of De-Hoarding!

{Day 27} Nightstand - 31 Days of De-Hoarding #write31days #dehoarding

When I started this project, several people, including my husband, asked me if I was just moving things from space to space and if they would just end up back where they started in the end.

They obviously know me pretty well.

That is exactly why I chose de-hoarding rather than cleaning.

Because, for me, cleaning is exactly that process.  Moving things from here to there to another place and then back again.  The constant game of musical stuff.

Because there is always something that doesn't really belong anywhere.  I put it here for now and then there when I need to clean this space.  And on and on.

Welcome to the end of the line.

The master bedroom.

It's the room no one ever has to see.  I can shut the door and hide it all.  So, I never really need to do anything about it.

Eventually all the excess stuff finds it's way into the master bedroom where it sits taking up space.

I know.  I'm a genius mastermind.

Without further ado.
