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.
