Last month, I started my 96 in 1096 list. I won’t go into details, but you can check it out here.
After a weekend of shopping, I realized that I have way too many clothes. I had ZERO hangers available in my closet. I searched Kyle’s closet and he didn’t have any either. Dammit. Cue my 96 in 1096 list!
One of my things to do was to organize and clean out my closet. I don’t know how long it will last since I love clothes, but I did it! Here’s a before picture:
I didn’t even have room to hang my work clothes up. The shoe boxes are storage, not shoes, and that big green case is my gun safe. (Yeah, yeah, I know, hillbilly FTW.) The shelving unit in the middle had a mix of shorts and junk. Basically, it was a mess. It even leaked out onto the back of my door because my sweaters didn’t fit in the closet:
Basically, the story is: What I moved in with Kyle I left my giant walk-in closet behind but brought my walk-in closet sized wardrobe. That was a problem, so on Monday I tried to tidy up my closet a bit. I tossed out anything I hadn’t worn in more than 6 months (not including my dresses and summer stuff). I now have a huge garbage bag full of clothes to take to charity.
Here’s my closet now:
Not too shabby, right? And the great thing? I have SOOO many free hangers! I even donated some to Kyle’s closet. I rolled up my shorts to make more space and threw out a bunch of the junk. I designated the top left section for my work clothes and the bottom left section for after work/weekend clothes. The right side is for my sweaters and more jeans. I just wish that cleaning out my closet was as fun as Carrie and the girls make it look in the original SITC movie.

Looks good! I really need to clean out my closet … I figure if I give everything to Goodwill, Nathan will HAVE to let me go shopping :D
