It always seems like when it gets colder I start nesting. It’s so dreary outside now is the perfect time to clean out closets and do those tasks I don’t want to do when it’s gorgeous out.
There are great sales right now on clothing and home items, and the colors that are available are gorgeous. There were some deals that I couldn’t walk away from, but we have a rule in my family – if something comes in, more needs to go out.
There are lots of important non-profits that help women “dress for success” and give them the skills and clothes to be able to successfully interview and land a new job. We are also very involved in groups that help homeless families and abused women get back on their feet, including Shared Housing and Genesis Women’s Shelter. Knowing that I’m going to be helping others by cleaning out my closets helps me to dig a little deeper and let go of things I might have held on to than can have a better use with someone else.
Today was a great day – I got some great new looks in my closet and helped a lot of women in the process. Recycling at it’s finest!
