Closet Issues

My bedroom has a very small closet.

It also sits at a very strange angle making it impossible to add shelves and/or put in any decent type of closet organizer.

I envy all those nice modern homes with big, gigantic, closets.

Like most people, periodically, I attempt to get rid of old clothes, etc.

Except …?

It’s always a problem with my bum arm because I’m right handed.

So when I “say” I clean out my closet, that usually means I clean out one small portion of it using my left arm/hand.

I haven’t taken every single thing out of my closet and REALLY cleaned it out since before my car accident.


This week I’ve been home all week fighting my annual October allergy-induced sinus infection.

(I’m on antibiotics.  I’ve been assured I’m not contagious – but I’ve been taking it easy all week.)

Yesterday, I must have had a moment of pure madness because I took every single thing out of my closet at the same time.

You know, like normal two-armed people do.

First of all, clearly I have hoarder tendencies.

Second, I have terrible taste in clothes – how could I have ever bought some of those items?

Third, I ended up with bags upon bags of stuff to take to Goodwill.

I own NOTHING now.

I got rid of it all.


It’s amazing how much stuff you can cram into a small closet if you  try hard enough  are me.

Of course, if I need to go anywhere or do anything I will need to buy clothes.

Unlike most women, I hate to shop so that isn’t something to look forward to.

On the other hand, since every item of clothes I own was about ten years old – it’s probably about time.

I also texted Paul Newman as soon as I was done letting him know I need him.

So, guess who I’m spending my morning with?

    I bought new clothes for the first time in about 3 years a couple of weeks ago, and now I desperately need to clean out my closet – I apparently have hoarder tendencies too. And the same dislike of clothes shopping.

    Good luck!

    It’s such an issue being a non-girly female ….

    You are not alone. Although I have entered the closet and purge some I hadn’t done it in years. And I thought the same thing about some of the stuff I had. Who would have bought this stuff or even worn it?! I don’t wear dresses anymore so all of those are gone. I so wish jeans or yoga pants could be worn everywhere because I no longer can stand being uncomfortable in clothing. When I think of my teenage years where my clothing was so tight it looked like it was painted on I cringe! It’s all about comfort now.

      I pretty much do wear jeans and yoga pants everywhere …
