    On the closet – A family member just moved and started new job. And she did a very smart thing. She organized by outfit. And she rounded out as she did it. So if she needed a white top to complete an outfit, she went and got one. Her first goal was to complete two weeks worth of work outfits. I think that was really smart.

    I “what not to wear-ed” myself many years ago. I took every single thing out of my closet. (That is key.)

    And then started trying on.

    I got rid of a lot. Many things went to alteration shop. Somethings went to dry cleaner. Etc.

    I also got a full length mirror. And that might be my suggestion for a first step. Taking pictures would be good idea too.

      Those are GREAT tips! I will definitely do that. I have stuff that is at least 10 years old. I mean, I was in maintenance mode for 10 years so I didn’t go up or down too much in sizes for a long time. I didn’t have to buy a lot of new stuff for until post-baby!

        Vickie that is a great idea to pull everything out – I think I’m going to do that!

    I need to purge my closet. I have some stuff that I like, but just don’t wear. It’s not practical for my day-to-day wardrobe. I try to purge when I purchase. For everything I buy, I have to get rid of one.

    You should get some clothes that fit now, even just a couple pieces. It will make you feel good about yourself, plus it’s fun shopping!

      Good suggestions. I need to do that. I’ve been feeling uncomfortable and frumpy. I am so in-between sizes! The stuff I wore right after having Logan is way too big but everything else is too small. SIGH

    Lisa – I would suggest maybe adding some new appliances to your dinner repertoire – we recently got an Instant Pot and an Air Fryer and having a lot of fun trying new recipes. SkinnyTaste has a ton of Instant Pot recipes and every one we’ve tried we’ve liked. And for Super Bowl I made egg rolls in the air fryer – yum! And tonight I’m trying out Tilapia. So it’s given us some new recipes to try and the Instant Pot especially it seems there are always a ton of leftovers so I’ve got the freezer stocked for lunches too.

      I love SkinnyTaste recipes! And I’ve been debating about whether or not to get an instant Pot for about a year now. I suppose I should just bite the bullet and do it!

        You’ll get a lot of mileage out of it! We tend to use it on Sundays when we have a bit more time – but especially at this time of the year when it’s so cold it’s nice to have those warm comfort foods
