Here is the before pictures.
The first step in this project was to move everything out of the closet and get rid of unused items. Both Andy and I have gained weight since we got married. There's a part of us that previously had a hard time parting with our old clothes because we always think we'll fit back into that stuff some day. During our garage clean up, I went through boxes of my smaller clothes and realized that even if I were that size again, it is unlikely that I would wear much of that stuff anymore, so I got rid of most of it. Yes, I still held on to some "just in case things, but mostly I got rid of my smaller clothes last month, and this week was Andy's turn to do the same. I am thrilled that he was extremely willing to part with this stuff. We're both just so over hanging on to stuff. I have a couple of teenaged nephews, so I bagged up Andy's old clothes and shoes and we will let them see if they want any of the stuff, otherwise it'll find a new home at Goodwill. We ended up bagging up seven garbage bags full of stuff. I could do a dance - that's how excited I am that we are getting rid of this unused stuff - plus, laundry day is going to be a breeze now that I won't be trying to stuff clothes into overfull dressers/closet!
Here are the pictures of the stuff that we have gotten rid of from our closet (and also a box from our bedroom).
Clothes: 102 items
Shoes: 18 pairs
I actually wrote this post last week and have since donated an additional 10 items of clothing/shoes, which are not pictured.
