So summer is here (somedays!) and I'm moving so I was going through my clothes deciding what I can stretch/what will fit..
I tried on these shorts I thought would still fit since they did last year.
They did not.

Anyone cleaning out their closet for summer yet?
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.

We are still having winter weather, so not cleaning out just yet! I did wash a bunch of spring and summer maternity this week and I'm going to have to find room for it. I know spring is coming soon (I HOPE!!!) but I can't put away my long sleeves and sweatshirts yet! DH is going to go nuts with all of the clothes in our room over the next month or so, but I wanted the stuff washed and prepared, because you just never know

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!

We still have snow on the ground, but I am planning on cleaning out my closet this weekend. I am going to put away non-maternity pants that I know won't fit me until after birth, and give away pants and shirts that haven't fit me for the past year anyway and I know I'll never wear again.

Yep, I've been cleaning out the kids' closets and trying to figure out what I can wear. Sears had a deal buy 1 get 1 50% off, so I got a new bathing suit since my maternity one I've had since being pregnant with #1 11 years ago! I bought a pair of shorts and a few tops for work. I don't have many casual tops though but I hate paying much for those.

I pulled out spring/summer stuff for the kids but I haven't even thought about it for me yet.

All my stuff is mixed in since here we get weird warm/cold days in weird seasons. I've had 2 other summer babies (July, September) and never bought maternity shorts... but I'm thinking this year I will. Other than that I'm looking forward to wearing some nice knit or cotton skirts.

I WANT to clean that thing out! It's full of my husband's crap. I fold all of my clothes into my dresser, and I go through them regularly. I should get a space saver or something and take the winter stuff out just to make it a little more organized.

I desperately need to do it because we are transitioning from summer to winter here. It's a big job though, so I keep putting it off!

I was just looking at my dresser drawers and thinking I need to clean these out! It's still pretty cold here, but hopefully in another two weeks or so it'll be beautiful.

I just did it tonight - I did the whole bedroom, in fact, in one big overhaul.

My winter and summer clothes aren't that different, so it's not a huge deal for me really. I just use jackets in the winter and omit them in the summer. Gotta love California.

I realized I have a lot of decent clothes and accessories that I have just been too lazy to use - I guess I have a thing for the look of heels - I have like 20 pair which I scarcely wear because they hurt, and I like to walk in place of using a car where possible.

Sometimes I think I should just have an auction and unload the stuff.

I just took 3 Big storage containers containing myclothes took them out, then washed, sorted, and folded all sizes (from 2T-7) boys' clothes to put in them. It's awesome, I won't have to buy much boy's clothes until my youngest is like 8! It was also very depressing because I found about 10 pairs of jeans ranging in size from 1-11. I used to be a size 1. ugh. I'll be happy with a size 7 after this pregnancy, but my metabolism has gone to **** since turning 30.

I did the big closet cleaning this week. Packed all the cute summer clothes away that will not fit until next year and made a little list of a few items I will need for the heat. Lots of room in the closet now!

im depressed in that I have no tee shirts, I need maternity shirts... I hate the thought of spending money of them though when I will never use them again.
