This clutter definitely makes MY butt look fat...aka August declutter challenge - day 15

I've had these grey pants for probably 10 years. I know we shouldn't wear anything with pleats but I camouflaged them for a good few years by wearing bum-length jerseys over the pants.

There is a particular jersey (pale-blue) that I LOVE wearing with these pants - they go SO well together.

They really started looking awful on me and I STILL couldn't get rid of them (like an old friend) so I put them aside for a year. This year I am SO OVER them and it was easy to now get rid of them.

Bye-bye, pants. It's been good :)

What are you decluttering today?

It's time to link up for week 2 of the challenge. You have until Saturday 16th 12pm EST and just like last week, I'll post the winners on Sunday.

Please link to your specific Declutter Challenge post and not to your general blog. Thanks :)

I missed week one, but I am making up for it! I've really enjoyed this. Thanks!

Very motivating challenge!

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who wears the same clothes for years. Once I find something I'm comfortable in, it's hard to let go.

I just recently got rid of a pair of pants that looked a LOT like those. Not only were they old friends and quite comfortable, but my grandmother had bought them for me. Talk about sentimental hoarding. Marcia, when you write the caption for next week's post, could you, um...think of one that's not quite so...uh, provocative? The link on my blog says "This clutter really makes my butt"! LOL

Marcia, in my post here, I talk about some philosophical aspects to organizing. Within that post, is the link to the things I actually decluttered. Hope this is not too confusing. It's under Tackle it Tuesday, but I hope it's OK to use the post twice.
