I know that materialism in excess breeds discontentment and fosters ingratitude. I also live in a small home with 4 children. So why on earth is it I cannot seem to get the girls clothing under control?! They have a large closet and 2 dressers bursting at the seams. Creating chaos when it's time to get dressed. These are just the clothes my 5 and 6 year old fit into right now. I also have several large storage bins full of clothes for them to grow into, not to mention the bins of clothing they have grown out of. I really struggle with this and I promise within the last month alone I gave away several bags of their clothing. It's like their clothes are rabbits and multiply. My problem lies in the fact so many of the clothes are wonderful. There aren't any clothes they can't wear whenever they want. I don't believe in special occasion dresses, every day is special. Maybe because they totally dress and pick out their own clothing it ends up they wear only a handful of their favorites. Then there are my favorites I keep in the mix hoping they might chose. Anyway bottom line is something had to be done. So we did it. I set out all their tops and bottoms. (first pic) There were over 120 tops alone! The last photo is what we got it down to. Amazing! I have to tell you it panics me and I want to go out to the garage and bring just a "few" things back in. The fact I haven't actually gotten rid of them is a security-but I know I have to. SOON! I also show a photo of the bin I packed to store away for Dotty and the pile to give away. In the give away pile alone are 6 swimsuits, 2 dresses, 23 pairs of pants, 13 pairs of pajama's and 45 tops. Next up the shoes and closet. Baby steps.
