Before I get to my middle and after photos for the project, I found a MAJOR perk to cleaning out my closet. You see, I hope to have nothing but white hangers in my closet. By getting rid of some of my clothes, I'm able to have all white hangers on my side of the closet! I was also able to throw out all the "store" hangers that we were using. HOORAY!!!
My before pictures of the closet are posted here, but without further ado, I present you my closet:
Here's my closet with all the clothes pulled out. I only got rid of one pair of shoes, because in all honesty, when I'm not pregnant, I wear all these shoes throughout the course of a month.
How is it that I find myself saying "I have nothing to wear"?
This is how my closet will look when I'm done being pregnant. I turned all the hangers backwards, so that within the 6-9 months following my delivery, I can see what clothes I really do wear, and which ones I think I wear, but don't! I also realized that I could pretty much pare down to just the bottom half of the closet if I didn't have to work for a living! Drats!

This is the "before" shot of my pajama & workout clothes drawer.
After picture: the right side are (top) workout pants, (bottom) workout shirts, middle (top) sleep t-shirts, (bottom) pj pants, left (top) my nursing friendly pajamas, so those will evenutally go the way of the dodo, (bottom) more pj pants. I love comfy pj pants, so cleaning out this drawer was a toughy!
Two bags ready to be donated!
What to do with all these hangers???
Little man figured it out:
Toss them off the bed and create your own fishing game!!! This kept him occupied for a good 20 minutes (and he's two, so that is like three hours for an adult!)
I have to say, I always feel such a great sense of accomplishment after a project like this! And I learned something... I'm a creature of repetition. I own 6 pairs of jeans, 5 of which are the same brand & cut, just in varying shades of blue. And MOST of my shirts have a fraternal twin (or triplet) hanging in my closet. I guess I find what I like and stick with it!
(sorry about the wonky spacing... I can't get blogspot to cooperate with me!)
