Closet Cleanse

by Meghann on February 3, 2011

Along with cleaning out the freezer, moving means cleaning out my closet.

That’s three bags worth of old jeans, shirts, and shoes that no longer have a place in my closet.

Oy vey.

This was really hard for me. I tend to hold on to certain items for memory sake (like old cheerleading shorts or fraternity formal shirts). These are pieces of clothing I haven’t worn in years and are well pass their prime, but I could technically still put on if I wanted to. It’s hard to give up things that are so much a part of your past.

Except now those cheerleading shorts have been replaced with real running shorts and those fraternity tees have been replaced with race tees. Also, those jean shorts I once loved so much are now two sizes too big and I’m sure will get more wear in another person’s closet.

I’m dropping the clothes off at Plato’s Closet first this afternoon to see if I can even get a little $$ from then and then the rest is going straight to a battered woman’s shelter.

I hope they all find good homes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lunch was…. interesting.

It started off as a stir fry of veggies (broccoli, carrots, onion, garlic, mushrooms, and purple potatoes) with sesame oil and soy sauce. Then I changed my mind and added two eggs to make an omelet scramble of sorts.

The tortilla was a last minute add in for the egg burrito effect. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Meals like these are why i love cooking. You can start out making one thing and then end up with something complete different if the mood so chooses. Cooking isn’t an exact science. It’s about experimenting and using your instincts to figure out what works.

Baking, however, is completely opposite. That’s why baking and I don’t get along as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰
