50 days to go: A Milestone

There are just 50 days to go before my self-imposed shopping ban ends which is a timely opportunity to reveal the contents of my closet.
Sole Mate asked to see inside so before I had time to tidy it up here it is.
Or rather, here they are (below).
I have two wardrobes.
The first is one in my eldest son's bedroom.
The bags overhead are stuffed with holiday gear that only comes out once a year.
The second wardrobe is in my bedroom and I share it with my husband.
There is a selection of shoes in the bottom but my boots and several other pairs are stored in the garage.
And I haven't even mentioned the chest of drawers of four storage boxes full of clothes.

Once my 50 days are up I will be reviewing this blog and if I haven't worn anything for the past year it will go unless there is a very good reason.
As an aside, the lovely Mervat's Meme made me laugh so I decided to take up her invitation to join in.
You need to answer the questions using the first initial of your name.
You can only use the same answer once.
They must be true.
And, if you follow someone with the same initial then all your answers must be different.
If you want to - join in the fun.
It's not as easy as it looks but you do discover some rarely used storage shelf in your memory bank.
I mean - Jilted John!!!

Hi there-thanks for sharing the contents of your closets my dear! I don't have as many clothes (even though if feels like I do have loads) this is mainly because I have to wear a uniform for work. It doesn't stop me buying though, LOL!

see you there! said...

You certainly aren't short of clothes are you? There you are in another cute summer dress. We are having very cool weather for this time of year so no summer dresses for me.

Right that's it, I'm off to Matalan tomorrow; the dress looks fab. Don't forget, we may be supporting you in your quest not to buy an item of clothing for a full 12 months, but we don't have to join in!

It's amazing that your Year of No New Clothes is almost up! I can remember when you started & it sounded such a slog, particularly if you count the days as you did. But you kept to it! I'm sure you can get a book out of this whole adventure, Jane.
