Great ideas: 1#



What do you think of this great idea (thanks Bets) — since reading this, I have made a real effort to wear things I don't usually wear and its been like wearing new clothes with some items!!!  It has a very trendy name — its called "Shopping your wardrobe/closet" and I did a little of it last year and it was fun!!! I wore combinations I wouldn't usually wear or added accessories to make the outfit look different. 


Would love to hear any great ideas from you that I can share with others.

  1. This is a great idea. I know because I've been doing it for a few years, now.
    It works!

    1. I sometimes more things I am not sure about to another location and if they sit in the drawer for 6 months and I don't even remember them, they are gone as its quite clear I will never wear these items!!

  2. It is funny how we tend to favour things in our wardrobe and then when it is suggested that we don't' use this in that, we cling to them. I know I am guilty of having some things in my wardrobe that I don't' wear much. But I keep them, just in case! =)
    love,

    1. Today I went through all our DVDs and now have a huge pile for the charity store. I have done the wardrobe and drawers and taken things to the bins and have started to wear things I wouldn't usually do!!! I am feeling quite liberated !!!! :)))) I use to "cling" to things, now I am much more ruthless !

    1. This has made me think about every thing I don't wear and as a result have decided to start wearing!!

  4. I find it really hard to discard things out of my wardrobe because every piece of clothing represents money spent and I HATE wastage when finances are tight! Even the clothes that I've been given second-hand (free) still represent money spent & savings! One thing I have been doing is giving my daughter some of my clothes - she loves them and is very pleased to wear them! It's lovely having a daughter who wears the same clothes as me!!!

    1. It's great you are both the same size and she likes your clothes. I don't remember wearing many thing from my mum, she use to be much heavier back when I was a girl.
