As I regained the weight, I would just shove clothes toward the back of the closet. At one point I bought bit 33 gallon bins and emptied the closet of everything that I could not wear. I shoved those bins into the corners and along the wall of my walk in closet. I ignored them, but knew that my 'thin' clothes were in them. I decided to pull those bins out...sort out the clothes and repack them in a way that I can more readily access the clothes that I will need as I lose the weight. I decided that I would also not put the bins back into the closet...I would cart them to the library and sit them on the futon. Easy Access for me to dig out what I need as I lose! (and it's not like we use that futon anyway....it is a leftover from my husbands premarriage days and is slated to go to the dump this year). I started unloading the closet...the bins must have multiplied. I pulled out not one...not two...not three but seven bins shoved to the gills with clothes. I was ready to sort.
What did I find? I found that most of the tops were from my smaller size...as I had gained weight I had gone to leaving the shirts open and using it camisols or teeshirts under them to extend the wear. Furthermoer, I really never weeded out the smaller shirts in the mid sizes...so they are still in my drawers and in my closet. (project for another day???) I put all of those shirts/tops in boxes and carted them to the library. All the pants and skirts I laid in stacks according to size. I rebinned them small stuff going upward and stacked those crates in order of sizes so that the biggest sizes are on top. I started a bin of 'too big' clothes...and left out some clothes that I can wear right now that I didn't realize.
I AM READY!!! BRING IT ON!!!!!
