Because our daughter played soccer in college, my husband and I bought hoodie sweatshirts with the school logo to wear at the soccer matches. We had great fun going on road trips and cheering on the team! She graduated in 2014, however, and all those sweatshirts are still hanging in the bedroom closet.
We wouldn’t want to get rid of them because they have such good memories, and it’s possible we might wear them to alumni soccer games. Still, they don’t need to occupy a preferred location in the closet, which I suspect has been giving me subconscious feelings of not having anywhere to put new clothes. Better to fold up those sweatshirts, put them neatly on a shelf where they don’t take up much space, and leave myself a nice welcoming open spot for new fashions!
About Clutter Comedy: Every Sunday (which I envision as a day of rest after a productive week of de-cluttering) I post a Clutter Comedy article describing my most memorable clutter discovery of the week. Other bloggers who wish to join in are welcome—just post a link in the comments! There’s no need to publish any “before” photos of your clutter, if they are too embarrassing. The idea is simply to get motivated to clean it up, while having a bit of fun too!
