So the Canadian and I got busy last night (not in the biblical way, but in the closet cleaning way) and went through mounds of clothes. It's actually really difficult to get rid of clothing -- so much of it has less to do with how it looks but about its sentimental value. For example, I made the Canadian keep the awful orange shirt that he wore on our first date.
But, I'm quite proud of our accomplishments. Not only did we get rid of tons of clothes, we got rid of HUNDREDS of hangers (both plastic and dry cleaning -- it's really embarrassing how many there were). It's amazing how much room is now in our closet. I think I have one more round of purging to do before we move, but this has been a really good start.
I should also say, I promise we are not crazy hoarders -- the rest of our house is regularly purged...I think the closet sort of got away from us.
