One of the projects that I am trying to tackle this week, after being inspired by Parlo and Logi, is to clean out and organize my closet and dressers.  I do this occasionally  but only on a small scale.  This one will be a bit larger. I'm not sure if I'm also inspired by the fact that my husband and I are doing a food lifestyle change in hopes of fitting in all of our clothes again.

After having a baby 3 months ago, I have lost 30 pounds, but I am still 30 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, which is still about 40 pounds over where I'd like to be.  I'm still wearing my yoga pants and maternity shirts, and I don't want to be.  Cleaning out my closet is also forcing me not to wear all the old things that I resort to wearing.

Here is the pile so far, and an example of pj's that I am getting rid of.  I wear these all the time and they are falling apart.  I have others and there is no reason to be wearing these with the waistband exposed.

We are also bidding adieu to my favorite t-shirt that I wear to bed.  Don't worry, I don't wear this is public.  I can hear my husband cheering as he reads this.  I am getting rid of it.  I've had this t-shirt for 17 years, and I have never listened to the grateful dead.  When I was 11 I liked turquoise and purple together, and my parents bought this for me at a roadside stand on a roadtrip that we went on.  The back has a scene of outer space and it says "space your face".  I'm not sure where we were, but I loved this shirt.

Hopefully this project will be over by the time the weekend is over!
