Clothing Purge

I just recently received a $300. gift certificate for Winners.  Yahoo!!  Even so I have been procrastinating about the seasonal purge and the annual changeover of the summer clothes to more fall like moving into winter.  I figure I really need to practice what I preach.    Why is it so hard to let things go?  Clothing in particular.   A whole season has gone by and I have many cute tops that I have not worn.  Most of them have good memories of days gone by.   So, you look at it and think, oh yeah, I remember when I wore that.  That was a fun day….and then I put the article of clothing back in the drawer.   Ugh!!  One of the things we talk in the support group that I run is “do I love this”, “does it fit properly“, “how does it make me feel”, etc.   If it doesn’t make me feel wonderful, can I let it go?  Once I kinda got on a roll, I ended up filling up a small garbage bag to donate to some lucky person and it felt so good.  I really feel that it is time for a change and that new things will come into my life. (and I don’t just mean materially)   I just have to make sure I don’t look in that bag. 
Next Step:  Work on downsizing some fabric…ugh!!
