Anyone want to sort this out?

My room that is. Today my Mum put her foot down and told me I have to sort out my clothes and get rid of the ones I don't want. This has got to be one of the most challenging things I have ever had to do. Okay so that was a bit dramatic, but seriously it was so hard.

I am one of these people that keep things 'just incase'. Only because in the past I have thought 'oh I'll wear that' and gone to get it and it's not there because I have thrown it out thinking I won't wear it again. To be fair I probably do have to sort out my clothes as now they're not fitting in my drawers or my wardrobe, and with having such a small room its really hard to keep it looking tidy at the best of times. Let alone with clothes pouring out here, there and everywhere!

This was only some of my clothes at the beginning of my clear out and may I add this photo doesn't do it justice. The piles were really high. I couldn't even find my floor once they were all out, was pretty funny finding things with the labels still on and clothes I had forgotten about. It was kind of stressful and with Mum going 'try it on it might not fit' every 5 minutes I was beginning to become resentful. I have thrown out 2 pairs of jeans and a top, not bad going I don't think!

I think my Mum probably would have liked me to throw out more, but what she doesn't know won't hurt surely? ;)



  1. I always have these clearouts 3 times a year. Sell the wearable and non worn items and shoes on ebay and send the rest to charity. I know what you mean about piles, lol.. I cant even fit any more clothes in my wardrobe right now, think a clear out is long over due for me! x

  2. thanks for the advice I could do with the extra pennies right now! I dread to think what my wardrobe is going to look like by the end of the year, I tend to double everything rather quickly! x
