The Clothes in my Closet

I'm trying a new thing this year - I turned all the clothes in my closet backwards. As I wear them, I'll turn them forwards again. Whatever's not turned back around by June gets sent to Goodwill!!

I suppose you might not be able to do this if you have vastly differing weather during different parts of the year, but here in Oregon it stays roughly between 40 and 80 degrees all year round. It does occasionally get  hotter or colder, but generally speaking, the same wardrobe works in every season!

So anyway... here's a look at my closet (taken about two weeks ago when I started this). I'll take another photo when I clean things out in June!!
Maybe I should buy more than black, blue, and gray???
What about you? How do YOU determine what you do or don't keep? Are you a ruthless de-clutterer or do you keep things around longer?


  1. Oooh I'm doing the same thing! But by the end of the year rather than June, because there are definitely 4 seasons to dress for in Minnesota. That said, I did just got rid of 4 bags of old clothes. Feels good!!

    1. Definitely!! Purging always feels great. I'm working on purging my bookshelf next. ;P

  2. this is such a good idea! i'll definetly have to try it. i have a problem with getting rid of things, because i always tell myself that i'll wear it and never do. i need to work on letting things go!

  3. This is a great idea. I'm doing a "Living Glamorously" challenge ( I've given up tshirts for a year. It's been great because it allowed me to see what I have, what I don't, try different things together and invest in staple pieces. I'm curious to see how you go. All the best!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
