Week 51

I feel like I should I stop commenting on the fact that I'm late again. Especially since it's my own game, and I'm setting the rules, but I can't help it, I hate being late. Luckily I am close to the end, and I'm going to make it!

The items, backstory, and method of expulsion: Last week's item was a full bag of clothes that Miss J had outgrown -- it was passed on to her cousin.

Week 50

Hey! Late again! But once again completed on time.

The items, backstory, and method of expulsion: I loved this past week, it was so easy. Do you decorate for a holiday, any holiday? Christmas, Hanukkah, St. Patrick's Day -- whatever. If you're anything like me, there are certain items that stay in the box, because you don't like them enough to put them out. So you look at them every year, and every year leave them in the bottom of the box. Ridiculous. So this year there was an armful of reject Christmas items that were promptly donated.

Sunday Stuff

I shared a picture of myself in a corset. I expect to break the internet any minute now.

(Seriously though, it's really a piece about cookies and my grandparents, and it's very near and dear to my heart.)

I also wrote about radicchio (that's rah-dee-key-oh) and bok choy.

Week 49

The items, backstory, and method of expulsion: What's this? More clothes? Yes -- but this was a more productive week than it appears. As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I had a tub of "work clothes" in the attic, and I decided that it was silly to keep storing clothes best suited for a job I might never have again (and don't actually want). I decided that items needed to work into my closet/life as it is now, or they needed to go.

A number of items went back into my closet, some of which I know will be easy to work into my wardrobe, others I'll need to give some time to see if they actually get into rotation, but thanks to this project, it will always be in my mind to consciously cull the unworn ones. Other items went into the bag for the annual clothes swap, and a couple items were shared with my mom. (If you're keeping track of bag status, I have one full bag for the clothing swap, one partial bag for donation, and one full bag of my daughter's clothes for my niece.)
