Well here you have it!! The results of my first PURGE PARTY on Thursday. I invited a bunch of local ladies to come and peruse my givings away and had a blast doing it.
I struggle with letting go and doing it this way really helped me. Knowing it is going to someone who will get enjoyment out of it and actually use it even for just a minute felt great. Plus I loved watching everyone rave about things and fill up their bags.
I served a delicious girly drink that was really fun to make and spent a lot of time socalizing and seeing people I have not seen in awhile! It was really a great evening and I am so happy with the results. Are you curious to know how much I got rid of? I am excited to tell you either way! Because YES I counted so here it goes:
Sweaters (65 to start) - 28 gone!!!!
Other Clothing (277 to start) - 148 gone!!!!
Accessories (48 to start) - 29 gone!!!!
Shoes (12 to start) - 8 gone!!!!
Also I got rid of a bunch of books but I forgot to count them!!! NOW all this stuff heads off to my LOCAL thrift store (not goodwill, actually it will go to where I used to work) to help support my local peeps.
NOW - What I got really really excited about was seeing the ladies I invited posting themselves in their new digs on facebook. They let me upload a few photos to this post to share with you guys!
Here is heather rocking her new hat, bag, shoes and jacket all from the PURGE! Isn't she looking freaking fantastic!
And Tiffanie is wearing her new vintage dress and hat from the purge as well!
In my opinion I would say the ladies were definitely satisfied as well as myself with the results of the purge. I feel lighter and like I can now really get into my closet space and start organizing. I am planning on doing more purge like things as I progress but It is a slow process for sure!!!
And a special thanks to my parents for letting me take over their house for the PURGE my stuff is still sitting in the living room (in bags now) but I am heading out to hand it over and hopefully someone else will get more use out of these things!!!!
