Prefacing the Whys and Wherefores

I am really excited to be getting this blog off the ground. For a long time I've mused on the idea that I should be writing about the things I am passionate about...so here I am, finally. Writing about... simplifying what's in your closet. Now, those who know me well are probably wondering why I didn't choose to write about my adventures in theatre (I have had many) or my thoughts on education (yes, I am opinionated). So over the course of the next few days, I plan to write about just exactly WHY I find this topic so fascinating...why this fairly petite, theatrical, teacher-type would choose to step out as a wardrobe guru. I can tell...you're just itching to know! What I hope you'll see is that my journey towards my own "very small closet" is one that anyone and everyone can take...and how this journey can improve nearly every facet of your life. If you enjoy what you read here, you may also want to check out more information on wardrobe planning . Until next time....

oh Jennifer, this is GREAT.

I love your topic already.

hmm, with the WLS surgery I had a year ago, I have gone thru so many sizes and it is a constant effort both to have clothes that fit me NOW and that will fit again in a few months without breaking the bank.

I am constantly dropping off BAGS of clothes over the Goodwill here in Silicon Valley.

your image consulting ideas will continue to be SO helpful as April Braswell - Online Personals, Online Dating, Human Sexuality, Romantic Relationships Expert for my clients and their work on their images both in person and in their Online Dating and Online Personals profile.

Wow, what a great topic. Please address how to get rid of those pants I no longer fit into but can't bring myself to get rid of yet. Hope springs eternal I guess.

Jennifer, cleaning out a closet is filled with so many issues you can touch upon. Think about it, our closets are filled with memories, hopes and failed dreams & endeavors. Plus, talk about dealing with procrastination.


Good Luck,

My closet over flowth! Letting go isn't a natural thing to do. Ask any two year old "Mine!"
Larry Winget took a run at this in his book about "Stop Whining..."
My wife was a model before she married me. Talk about inventory!
My problem is Steve's problem. Sizes shift around. Or maybe I just became rounder?
Change is the name of the game. Note simple and easy are not the same!

Jennifer,

I'm in the same boat as the other folks here. It seems like so much stuff gets accumulated. And I don't even think of myself as much of a clothes person! I look forward to learning how to part with the past in the form of accumulated stuff. I'd love be able to get everything into a very small closet.
