A clean sweep

Sense of achievement this afternoon is being obtained via a thorough clean-out of my wardrobe (translation for Americans: closet). Let me summarize the results...

CategoryPercentageFinal destination
Clean and in good condition25%Back in the wardrobe
Still loved but food stained, with holes in or overwashed20%Bin, sadly
Forgotten about and food stained, with holes in or overwashed10%Bin
Don't fit any more15%Oxfam
In perfectly good condition but that I never actually wear or have gone off10%Oxfam
In perfectly good condition, but which I had forgotten or lost under other things5%Back in wardrobe
Would be in perfectly good condition if I actually ironed them5%Into wardrobe with reservations - I hate ironing!
Cardigans10%Mostly back in the wardrobe, except one or two which I've gone off

I think I actually have more clothes I think I want to wear but significantly more space in my wardrobe. I am definitely calling this a victory :)

Other things I have done today: A wash of the stuff which I am keeping and was lying around on the wardrobe floor, downloaded latest Teen Wolf (not watched yet, so don't spoil me!), tidied up the pile of books on my side table and the stuff on my dressing table.

Next up: Take Oxfam bags to Oxfam, put away Alex's t-shirt mountain, hoover upstairs, put bin bag in bin, packing, games night, with a warm glow of satisfaction!
