Yep, again. It should be a weekly thing until I get it under control but I wait until I can no longer close the door properly and stuff falls out when I try and cram the clean washing in. HoHum, I have too much stuff..
But! As of now I am down to only 6 pairs of black pull on pants. Trousers, slacks, longin's, call them what you will. Six! They all fit, I wear them...Mind you the 5 pairs that I have bagged up for the op-shop also fitted and have been worn this year but really, 11 pair of the same thing is really not right. Not good and not happening here any more. I now have *only* 10 pair of trousers in the cupboard.
6 black. My go to trousers for most days.
1 cream, Summer time.
1 brown. Warmer type
1 patterned. Summer wearing
1 jeans. Might go as I am not a jeans wearing type. But they fit! I am giving them a chance until the next cull.
I am wearing a pair...of black and I think there is a pair (black) in the wash.
And of course this is not counting what is in the basket of yard stuff under the bed. I know there is a pair of black trackies and a pair of black pants in there. Or should be, I can't seem to pull the too full basket out to cram 'em in. I will get to this basket sometime over the week as it is too full again.
Why is there so much? Because I hate throwing good stuff away and when Vinnies wants to get rid of it because they have enough already in the shop I feel sorry for it and bring it home where it will be loved. The 2 bags I have here to go will be taken to the other op-shop where I wont know what happens to it but I'm pretty sure they will put in in their shop and not waste it.
I did the shirt shelf last week but there might still be too many in there too and I now have 4 jumpers less than I did a week ago...Four less pairs of knickers than yesterday but still probably a dozen pair too many and way too many socks...HoHum...back into it.
How many is too many? How many is enough?
