Day 11: Cleaning out

I went through my closet today as promised.  The undertaking was not as big as I thought it would be.  Probably because I've been purging things ever since I read "7" some months ago.  So today I came up with 23 things to get rid of.

I know... it doesn't look like much.  It really isn't.  But when I counted all of my clothing including: nice shirts, t-shirts, pajamas, workout clothes, sweats, sweaters, shoes, boots, coats, scarves, dresses, jeans, tank tops, shorts, and swimsuits, I have about 85 items.  I still have a few coats I could give away, but I just couldn't do it today.  I'm a work in progress.

But I am making progress.  Last month I gave away 5 of my 6 purses.  Which means I'm a 1 purse lady now.  Boy does that make life easier.  Not having to dig through purses because I've put my wallet in one of the 6!  I've weaned my scarves from 6 down to just 2.  I went from 4 sweaters to 2.  

Slowly but surely I'm letting go.  My "stuff" will no longer own me... I will own my "stuff".


  1. "My stuff will no longer own me. I will own my stuff!" LOOOOOOOVE that!!

  2. I totally got that from "The Hole in Our Gospel" by Richard Stearns. He doesn't say it in exactly those words. Such a good word though!
