Go to your closet right now and count how, hats, handbags, wallets, belts, sunglasses, earrings, necklaces, scarves, watches, bracelets, rings...and other do you own?

Organizing my closet today and realized that I don't wear half or use the half of the items in my closet....time to donate. What is the right number for a woman to own? My Mother's influence must live in me, because I realized, for example, on handbags, that I may have lots of colors...I only use black anymore or the ones from my BIZ. I guess I am a walking ad for Jockey Person to Person. I never have to worry about what to wear. LOL

Is there a stopping point for you? Do you stop when your closet is full? I feel like that woman in that Goodwill commerical that throws items out of her closet (while the driver waits in the driveway for the donation) and utters things like, "back when I had a figure"....LOL.

  • this will take a few trips..
    shoes-28 pair, not counting the gardening clogs i keep on the side porch
    necklaces-25, not counting the pasta necklace my ds made in preK
    others-2 ponchos (one loose-knit crocheted, one wool)

    i tend to rotate the shoes/handbags/wallets..i clean out the closet twice/year, and donate or give to friends, if its something i know a gf wanted. most jewelry is gold/white gold/stones, and i keep it-about a 1/4 is costume and i donate it when i'm 'done'..if it hasn't broken because of cheap workmanship.

  • I have not counted my purses or belts, but a couple of months ago I organized my shoes and I counted them, I have 85 pairs of shoes, not counting flip-flops.

  • My obsession is shoes. Can't seem to get rid of any even the ones that are broken or I don't wear

  • That is easy - three pairs of shoes- one for work, one for everyday, and a pair of sandals
    one purse, which I hate using, and I do not wear jewelry of any kind or scarves, belts, etc.
    I guess you could call me a minamalist (sp?). LOL

  • Shoes? 4 or 5 pair

    Hats, wallets, belts, sunglasses, earrings, necklaces, scarves, watches, bracelets, rings? None... Besides my wedding ring and 1 pair of earings, I have no need for all the other stuff...

    Beyond that, I have 3 purses, and I only have those because 2 were free... Otherwise I would only have one.

  • Four pairs of shoes, steel toe work boots, sneekers, a pair of sandles and a pair of flip flops I got from the Red Cross.
    I still need a pair of dress shoes.
    Two handbags, one black and one brown.
    No hats.
    Two wallets, one of which is used for old ID's and other cards.
    One pair of sunglasses for when I wear my contacts.
    Ten pairs of earrings.
    Eight necklaces.
    No watches.
    Two bracelets, one silver and one gold.
    Four rings, including my wedding ring.
    No belts.
    One head scarf.

    If I use it regularly, like once every six months I keep it. Otherwise it gets tossed. If I can't fit it, nor does it look like I'll fit it in the next six months it gets tossed. Just don't ask how many shirts I have. I have far more shirts than I have bottoms. :)
