Love me some closet shopping
Over the weekend, I really noticed that the Mr seemed to have one of his thin outs up top where all of a sudden he looks completely different. I knew a closet clean out was inevitable. We went clothes shopping for Hawaii and knew all of our bottoms would need replaced from last years trip to San Fran and not many shirt wise because of the next ones we'd inherited from "keep bins" from years ago. I did the same and went through my closet getting rid of the last of the 3x's...hopefully never to be seen again. I tried on some 18/20's I bought at the end of last season hoping I'd be firmly in them by the time the trip rolled around. I'm pretty much there but we're washing all of our clothes to see how they fit after they've gone through the dryer. Nothing worse than getting new clothes, not washing them prior and getting to your destination and bein' all "uh say, wasn't this longer at home?"
I told him to start trying on every shirt in his closet. Man, some of my favorites were in there, namely a few Hawaii shirts from another lifetime. As he put them on and sulked that they were too big for him, I'd smile and perk up and say "oh! That's too bad!" as he threw them at my face knowing I'd just inherited some good ones. I do have to say when I bought his Life is Good shirt last year for our anniversary trip, I couldn't wait until I could fit into it. That time is now. :-) Looove me some closet shopping!
Do you keep clothes you've either outgrown or bought the next size down on sale in hopes that you'll be able to do some closet shopping as you lose weight?
