Brenda's Get Organized Journal: Week 3

I have found that this project has been very difficult, I am bad enough about holding on to the past but my husband is worse. He doesn't want to get rid of anything. I am doing my stuff and by Sunday I will have it done. If my husband doesn't go through his stuff, I will do it myself. I have tried to get him to do it but I am tired of being a broken record. I won't get rid of some of it but I will be going through his gazillion dress shoes and dress coats that he doesn't wear. Only saving the best few for him to wear on the rare dressy occaision. My size 9 clothes are boxed up to go to Good Will and my too big clothes will go to my sister. I've also boxed up all my clothes that are pastel. They are gifts that don't go with my olive skin. People think that because I am very light complected that I should look good in pinks and baby blue. I am going to get clothes in colors that look good on me, yellow,brown,purple and deep red.

I am really looking forward to that shopping spree, & I will have room for it too. As soon as the closets are decluttered my husband is going to build a his and a her closet in our master bedroom so I will have to wait on the extras for the closet till I see what will be best for the new closets.
