Thanksgiving week  was an interesting one to say the least. It had been a week full of letting go of the old and making room for the new. Tuesday afternoon, a friend who is a stylist, recently took me on as a client and conducted a clothing inventory of my closet. This was just the first phase of the process. We examined every piece of clothing that I had. We discussed each item, the look that I am trying to achieve and the variations that my garments could be worn in. Afterwards, each item was placed in one of four categories:

  1. Give away- i.e. Goodwill
  2. Resale- Consignment shop
  3. Maybe-could possibly keep but it was up for discussion
  4. Winner- I could keep

HEAR ME when I say that this process was more painful than I thought it would be. We all have some items that we know have to go, and for the most part, we are okay with that. But others we keep for various reasons such as the cost factor or it is one of your favorite pieces. If we were honest, a few of the items you just plain forgot they exist.
