My name is Kacey..... and I have a problem.

I have what some people would call a fetish...others an addiction. I LOVE jackets. No matter what time of year it is, I'll buy a jacket. In fact, I normally buy more during the summer than the winter since they are always on sale! I have bought so many jackets over the years that I have had to take over one of the hallway closets just to store them. So what happens when closet #2 gets too full for my latest purchase? Now why do I feel the need to purchase so many jackets in order to prepare myself for a season that only lasts for a couple months out of the year? I have no idea. BUT, after recently becoming a member of GWBTMJA (Girls Who Buy Too Many Jackets Anonymous), I have began the long journey of overcoming my addiction.
Step #1- Admitting I have a problem.
Step #2- It's time to let go of the past and start cleaning out my closet... literally.

Here is a before and after. I guess the picture doesn't do much justice... because I got rid of 18 of my 33 jackets!... I told you I have a problem...

I felt like a new woman after I sorted through all of that. haha And it even gave me space in my 2nd closet for all my skirts/dresses! So why stop there? Closet #1 has been pretty neglected lately as well....
Before and After

(Oh ignore the Raja Bell poster on the door... traitor.)

In the end... I was left with a giant pile of give-away clothes (which made some aunts/cousins pretty happy...) and a lot of empty hangers. Hopefully they'll stay empty for a while.

Kacey, I am so embarrassed. There are situations that are not to be shared with the general public. Now everyone is in on your ONE and ONLY problem! Why must you air your dirty little secrets to everyone??? Some things are just better left "in the closet":)

(Now come over and do Mommy's closet.)

P. S. I LOVE that jacket you bought on Wednesday!

So cute! Good job! I have a jacket fetish as well. My dad says he disowns me during the summer cause I will totally walk around in a hoodie while its 110 outside!
