Oh, and then there’s the clothes! I toted probably 20 full big garbage bags stuffed with clothes, shoes and accessories to my favorite charity thrift stores. Some of that stuff had been with me for decades, literally – mostly because I’d say to myself, “I haven’t worn that in ages, but I’m going to keep it just in case!” (Do you know what I’m talking about? Are you one of the men or women who do this? Let me know here
But this time, instead of hauling my past around in boxes of memorabilia and clothes, I decided on a deep purge… a lot of the stuff spanned different stages of my life, which even makes less sense to keep them because they’re not my style anymore… I haven’t worn evening gowns, fancy purses and shoes for more than 2 decades. The same with earrings – dozens of pairs (about time, I let my piercings close-up long ago). Oh, and jumpsuits? Yikes.
