My Own Happiness Project

A long time ago I read a book called the Happiness Project which I’m sure I’ve mentioned on here. I started re-reading it again and want to start taking some of the steps that are mentioned in there.

I’m going to be doing a series of posts which although won’t be in any sort of order or format, will be linked. They are going to cover things like exercise, eating, attitude, cleanliness etc.

I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed with the amount of things I have that I really don’t need and how I justify keeping things that I have no intention of using. Especially clothes. There are those items that I love but somehow never wear because I can’t manage to find that magical top/pants/skirt/shoes/jacket that will instantly make that piece work. And I know logically that I will never find those items. But I keep them anyway. There’s no sentimental value to them. It’s simply that I spent alot of money and I can’t bear to donate them when they cost me so much. I know. It sounds really terrible to say that but it’s exactly how I feel. Generally when I clean my wardrobe out I give everything to a friend, who will in turn take what she wants then drop the rest off at various op shops. I don’t want to do that anymore.

I used to also donate work clothes to a woman who would donate them to disadvantage kids who are going for their first job interviews and didn’t have the appropriate attire. I’ve learnt that she has since past away and no one is taking over the work she was doing which makes me sad because I think it’s such a great idea.

Anyway, so Monday and Tuesday night I took about 1.5 hours to clean out my wardrobe.

Here are a few photos, I’ll post some more in tomorrow’s post.

It’s a hard slog so far but I think it’ll be worth it in the end!

    I heard about that lady too! She died? That’s so sad, it was a genius initiative. Maybe you could be the new clothes lady…

      Perhaps. I don’t think I could handle all the clutter though. She must have gotten so much stuff that was completely useless like op shops get. Don’t people realise that stuff still has to be decent quality??? Silly people!
