Closet Cure Assignment # 1

Today I received my first email assignment for The closet Cure. I was so excited when I saw it in my inbox. Let's do this!

I have chosen to use plastic grocery bags for my sorting. I don't have boxes handy and garbage bags are too large. I do very small sortings every couple of months and swap my clothes at Plato's Closet so I know personally my piles are not going to be that large(and if they are I'll just get more bags from the kitchen). OR perhaps I'm in denial.

So if you didn't read the article,  our first week assignment is to collect 9 bags, boxes, crates or whatever. One for each:
  • a "maybe" bag/box
  • a "dry cleaning" bag/box
  • an "alterations/repairs" bag/box
  • a "shoe repair" bag/box
  • a "sell/swap" bag/box
  • a "donate" bag/box 
  • a laundry basket
  • a trash bag
Pretty simple. I am going to tweak this a bit for myself. I will not be having repair bags because anything that's broken I'm just going to toss out. Also going to cut out the dry cleaning. I don't do dry cleaning (what? I know) I don't want to pay extra for someone else to clean my clothes, I don't have anything worth that much. If it's stained beyond repair it goes in the trash.

I love that the first assignment is a no-stress approach to purging the closet. It can be overwhelming for some and a little sad for people (like me). I am sad for the outfits that could have been, but I just keep thinking about the outfits that CAN be.

I can't wait for tomorrows assignment, who else is with me?

  1. Dry cleaning? LOL...what is that?!
    I've only got 3 bags: keep, donate, don't fit right now but might fit later :)

    1. "Don't fit now but might fit later" is one of the worst closet hoarder phrases haha
