Only So Many Hours In The Day

I have off work this week due to my move, but I have just been going non-stop. There is so much to do and only so much time to do it. I am so excited for Thursday morning when I am scheduled to move up to Philly, but I have lots to do before then!

I have been packing forever it feels like, it just never ends. I don’t have much left to pack, but I don’t want to forget anything, its very stressful. Mich came over yesterday to say goodbye, since she is going to be away until Thursday. She was a MAJOR help. Since I already had all my ‘must bring’ stuff up in Philly, she helped me go through the rest of the stuff I have here, and decide what to keep, what to trash and what to donate. It was like Clean Sweep! Have you seen that show?

I haven’t really lived at home since before college. From college I lived up in Philly, and moved all my college crap there. I have always kept stuff and home. I keep my winter wardrobe in Va in the summer, and swap it out with my summer wardrobe in the fall. It works out nicely, but I have never really gone through my stuff before. I have tons of crap from high school, and lots of my clothes don’t fit me anymore since my 16 pound weight loss. That totally cut me down 2 clothing sizes so everything from that era had to go! It is good to get rid of all that, and I just never have taken the time to go through it all before.

Its so fun how a piece of clothing can take you back to a certain place of time, and bring back memories from when you wore it. It was nice to go through that all yesterday with Mich. She was amazing. Look at how much I am donating to goodwill. Here is one pile of jeans and shirts and some shoes:

I seriously have a shoe addiction. It’s a sin.  All of these shoes have been worn tons and totally loved, but its time to say goodbye. I can only have so many flip flips in my closet and half of these are way worn out. Goodbye fabulous shoes!moving 155

Not the most organized picture here, but there are pants, shirts, 2 jackets, a few dresses and other stuff in this pile. Stuff from YEARS ago, I know I will never wear again. Stuff that may be too young for a 25 year old. You know how that goes. We grow older and mature, and you hope your wardrobe does the same. Some of this stuff is totally still wearable, and I hope it goes in to some good hands

Off to continue my packing journey for a while and then I am heading to TopGolf with my dad and brother. It was part of my Father’s Day present to my pops and we are just getting around to go now. Its so hard to get everyone together these days!

Happy Monday!

    There is this moment when you release posessions that you also release part of your past self, making way for the new you to be. Moving is one of the most stressful experiences we can experience, so I wish you a lot of good thoughts and peace. And When you are feeling anxious, a nice walk around the block to clear the air!

    i love that about clothing (and many other things), when they instantly bring back memories. there's something about a material object that stores memories so well.

    moving is so much work! sounds like you're doing well though!

    Congrats to you and the WL!
    Getting new clothing is the BEST part!

    🙂 glad you're passing on your clothes, many people will benefit from it!

    I know it's hard to give stuff up sometimes, but just think of all the new stuff you'll get!
