A New Dresser

My husband and I picked up my new dresser on Sunday from the local furniture store. My old one was falling apart (which I didn’t realize until we moved). I got a great deal on it. $157.00. I saved over $300.

I don’t have a lot of clothes. I am a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. I keep t-shirts hung in my closet. My jeans are folded and put in my dresser as well as bras, panties, and socks. And pjs. Can’t forget my pjs. Everything is folded in my dresser. Even my socks is are matched and folded. Yes I am anal.

In winter I keep my summer clothes in a bin in the basement and vice versa in the summer. I am ditching the bin and putting my clothes in my hope chest at the end of our bed. In the past I have always used my hope chest to store some of my writing in but now since I have my office I can use my hope chest for clothes.

The bin is in the middle of my living room. I don’t want to deal with it because I am overwhelmed. I am overwhelmed because I have to decide what to keep and what to let go. We just had a garage sale two weeks ago but I didn’t have time to go through it and get rid of clothes.

Some of the reason why I am overwhelmed has to do with my weight. Do I keep the clothes that I might fit into one day? Or do let them go? Usually I would keep them for the next garage sale but I’m thinking of not doing that. Why do I want to hang onto those items for the next year and have it take up space in my new home? I don’t think so.

I want to start with a clean slate. I want to have only things I love in our new house. Items that fulfill me and show the world who I am. Saving clothes because I might some day fit into them isn’t part of the plan. It only brings anxiety because I don’t fit into them.

I often think about how much space our stuff takes up not only in our homes but our psyches as well. Are we clogging the flow of good that might be wanting to come into our lives because we are hanging into stuff. Maybe

I’m going to bed now. When I get up I will deal with rearranging my dresser and the bin. Maybe…..

  1. I’ve got to get off my ass and started dealing with my wardrobe situation, too. Get off-season stuff moved into the new house, organize, and purge. Which is why I’m sitting here reading people’s blogs and commenting about how I need to do the same thing. And how I’ll do it later🤗

  2. It’s up to you, but I like to keep a few things around that are a little too small as an incentive to get in better shape. Your dresser is way more organized than mine, so you’re way ahead of me. Chip away at this stuff, and it won’t seem so overwhelming. It will all get done eventually. 🙂

  3. If you have clothes that you absolutely adore, keep them. Even if they are too small/big now. But the rest…you can always buy new clothes. Second hand stores, Kohls…wherever your heart wanders. I love the dresser handles, by the way…

    1. I know. They are so cool. I don’t really have anything I really adore. I have items that I like. My wardrobe is something I really need to think about. This move and the 2nd floor has helped me lose a couple of pounds and my clothes are looser. And I’m happier. I love Kohl’s!
