The other day I was going through all of my things so that I could try my best to eliminate all of the unnecessary never-ending clutter that I have acquired. Mostly clothes but clutter nonetheless. This had to be the 10th time I’ve tried to do this.
I have not bought anything to add to the clutter so I’m not sure why it appears as if my efforts have gone unnoticed. It would appear as if I haven’t just donated 10 bags of clothing and household items within the past month. Though I have and it just never ends.
The problem that I’m finding is that somewhere along the line I have acquired a substantial amount of clothing with the tags on them. I do this because I tend to buy clothes and not wear them until the clothes I already have been completely destroyed.
Thus, the never-ending clutter.
Does anyone else buy new clothes only to never wear them until the clothes they have are goners? Or is it just me? It’s almost as if I’m preparing for the apocalypses clothing style.
I’m not sure when and where I acquired this horrible pattern of hoarding new clothing but the buck stops here. I’m turning over a new leaf and I refuse to buy any more clothes unless I absolutely need them. My closet is free and so am I. The less stuff the better.
Marie Kondo would be proud. Or at least I think she would. I imagine that anyone who is brave enough to get rid of most of their belongings would be on her list of people that she would want to engage with. That and people she can understand. Nonetheless, I did it. I got rid of most of the clothing that I bought and don’t wear and that’s all that matters.
