I am so excited. I mean, really. You know when you have those moments where you wonder if anyone actually reads your blog…or cares? Well, maybe you don’t. But I definitely do. Anyway, I was having one of those moments when I checked my email and Da-dah-da! – email from one of my readers whom I just adore.
This lady has been very active and has participated in many elements/competitions/giveaways. It feels fantastic when people participate!
Imagine my joy when I realized that she heard me when I was talking about ‘minimalism’ – basically cleaning it up, making things easier, and organizing like a crazed person. She took my suggestions to heart and actually put them into practice!
She told me that I could publish this letter that she sent to me. And it is a pleasure to do so!
I was highly impacted from the beginning of your articles on minimalism. I just couldn’t get around to following through with the motions of working on my own closet! I actually have 2 closets that are equally cram packed and when I took this picture there was a full load of my clothes in the washing machine!
Can you imagine the trouble I had getting an outfit together in this mess!
I was so impressed by your putting your outfits in an easy to grab fashion!
Also I had things hanging there that I had NOT worn in years but just couldn’t let go of them.
There were things I had been looking for all summer that I found when I cleaned this out. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Below I took a picture of all the empty hangers that were left over once I trudged through the ridiculous amount of clothes I never use!
It was amazing!
This past weekend I packed for a full trip in minutes because everything was in outfits and nothing was lost under the piles of clothes I had I am embarrassed to say just thrown up in my closet
Can you see how much I took out?
This was before I had put it in order.
Every time I look in my closet which is obviously at least once daily; I am thankful for you!
I have my things orderly, in outfits , where I can easily :
Pack for a weekend,
Grab an outfit for whatever weather happens to be coming along, and feel good about what I have picked out.
Pocket books are some accessories are in the boxes; scarves are tucked into the tops.
THANK YOU MLIAE!!
I am so happy about this letter, I have been smiling for days! I have to thank her (THANK YOU!) for letting me know about all of this, and thank her for reading, participating and just being a super cool person!
