The Great Closet Cleanout! :: Monday, February 6, 2012

The other day I was looking in my closet... and was horrified by the fact that there really wasn't any room left... and there was a ridiculous amount of clothing that I no longer wore or even liked there!!! My closet was long over-due a makeover...
So, this morning I started the GREAT CLOSET CLEANOUT!

It took most of the day to go through it, but I finally got it done... there's still a lot of stuff that I'm keeping out of nostalgia (sometimes you just can't let go! even when you know you wont wear it again...), but there is now room!

Before and after!

Main closet(left) before and after.
It kills me to get rid of dresses... it was by far the hardest thing for me... but I managed to let 17 dresses go!

Main Closet(right)before and after.
Bye-bye some shirts and cardigans. I need more cardigans... yet don't at the same time.

Wardrobe before and after.
All of my work skirts except 5 are now GONE GONE GONE! And, the ones I kept are the only ones not horrendously giant on me now. A couple of my 'cute' skirts are gone (they weren't cute on me xD), and my 'work' t-shirts... man, some of them were ugly ugly ugly!

Now, I'm left with a huge pile of clothes for my ma to go through, donations, and a ton of clothes from Japan that I'm going to be selling!! YAY!

The picture really doesn't do justice to the pile!!

I also cleaned out some of my drawers... but that wasn't as impressive.

In other news, I've been cooking an absurd amount!
Since I've been home from Japan, my weight has buoyed up a bit because I can't STOP EATING! On my previous diet, that wouldn't be a problem because I was always eating good food. Lots of veggies, fruits, low cal. etc. So, I could pig out and still not worry...
Since I've gotten home I've been pigging out on things like... cookies, cake, french fries, Chinese food... It's not even like I WANT to eat those foods!
But, I eat when I'm emotional... and lots of family crap has been happening lately, SO, I've just been eating what is easy. Sadly, cookies, cake and the likes are EASY to make and eat... mostly because they are all made for me! (microwave... horrible invention!)

SOOOO, I have started cooking everything myself again! Here's some foods I've been making.

Tuna Steaks, rice pilaff, and apple salad

Poblano Peppers and feta cheese pasta

Poblano Peppers, mushrooms, onions, and garbanzo beans. (with tortilla)

Vegetable pasta, garbanzo beans, and salad.

Tofu steaks, Poblano Pepper and carrot saute, and salad.

(now I'm hungry again!)

and, a couple pictures of why I've put on some weight...

As well as cooking good meals... I've been baking cookies and cakes. Now, the cookies are all gone... so, I wont be as tempted. xD

And, me from the last couple of days. :)

Tuesday: working with the signs. (and playing with photoshop xD)

Friday: My brother brought my littlest nephew up from Texas to visit. He is the CUTEST THING EVER!

We played with blocks all night.... which he enjoyed knocking down like godzilla! Little monster. xD

Oh... last thing, I haven't been wearing my extentions much lately... not because I don't LOVE them still... but because I'm toying with the idea of cutting my hair short. Like... to my shoulders... to do a cute-ish bob.. but I don't know. xD

Woooow you did an awesome job with your wardrobe!! I also had to clean up mine when I moved about a week ago to a new apartment! In the new apartment wasn't that much closet space so I HAD TO throw away some of my clothes XDDD I'm satisfied now though, I got to learn how to be ruthless (since I'm emotionally attached to all of my clothes) and just coldly throw away stuff I hadn't used in ages. Looking forward for your sales post though XDDDD I'm hopeless......
The food looks SO GOOD ♥♥♥♥♥ Please come cook for me~~~ ♥♥

Good luck! It's liberating getting rid of all the junk you don't wear anymore!

 It was so yummy! I want to continue to cook! It's so much healthier than pre-made meals!
I think everyone can use a closet cleaning day. :)

 hahaha! You pay for my flight there and I'll come cook for you! LOL! Though I want to come visit Finland one day when I have money.

I'm planning on moving at some point in the future, when the time comes I'm going to get rid of SOOO much! I don't want to have anything unnecessary or keep a ton of clothes I don't wear.... so THAT closet cleaning is going to be massive.
It'll take a little while for my sale post. Most clothes are off-brand and dreamv things, so everything is going to be really cheap! I'll put a link up when I'm ready! :)
