Spring Cleaning, 2018 Edition March 25, 2018

Posted by Jim Berkin in General.

Took some time around the NCAAs today to put together two big bags of clothes to bring to Goodwill.

Not MY clothes. I broke into my neighbor’s house and took theirs. I’ll clean out my closets another day.

But seriously folks… unloaded maybe a half dozen knits, a few dress shirts, a bunch of T-shirts I’ve gathered over the years and have NEVER work, some still sealed in bags, some pants, and an old blacker-than-black sport jacket with some too-big ’90s era shoulder pads.

Some stuff was too beat up to donate, so into the trash it went.

Some other stuff in the backs & bottoms of some dresser drawers might be worth salvaging, with some laundering and freshening up.  I’m a creature of habit, and once I got into a particular pattern of clothes, I stopped wearing a lot of stuff I had that’s pretty nice. Made myself a promise to work them into the routine more often. So far, so good. Finding them in the drawers & closet was kinda like buying a bunch of swell new clothes but not spending any money. I recommend the sensation. I usually only experience it when I rediscover some great book I bought, shelved to read later, and then forgot about for months or even years.

Which reminds me,  I ought to go through all the books and do the exact same thing I just did with the wardrobe.

And for the same exact reason – to create room for all the new crap I will surely go out and get next.

It’s not easy being me.
