The effect of seeing all those explorers yesterday pushed me into doing a bit of it myself. Yup, into the attic I went. Okay, I didn't make the actual trip but I did ask Fuchsia to find my winter clothes while she was up there.
It took some searching but she finally found 3 full containers (but alas, no Mr. Livingstone). She told me that was a sign I had way too many clothes but I told her it was just because sweaters are so bulky they take up a lot of room.
And I believed that line myself until I started washing them. Load after load. I filled all 3 of my clotheslines and had enough left that I had to stick some straight into the dryer.
Now I am trying to figure out just where I am going to put them. Fuchsia and I filled 2 garbage bags for goodwill, I rearranged (crammed) Bassman's clothes into one cubby (he doesn't need all that room. That's what suitcases are for, right?), and I still have overflow.
It may be time to go to the local department store and buy an(other) underbed storage box. Which I will fill, push under the bed, and promptly forget.
Until next spring when it is time to get the 3 boxes of summer clothes back out and the cycle will repeat itself once more.
Hey, I'm nothing if not predictable.
