Sabbitcal Updates and Such

From my original post on the sabbatical:
  1. I need to save money. - Done, with the help of also joining a vanpool for work.
  2. I have way too many clothes. - I still have way too many clothes, but I have weeded some of them out and plan on doing so again this weekend.
  3. I only wear about  30% of said clothes. - I'd say it's closer to 60% now.
  4. I need to bite the bullet and get some items altered.- I just sent 2 dresses and one pair of pants to my aunt to alter...yay!
  5. I hope this will inspire me to lose some weight. - Meh.  Not so much.  I think I've lost 4 lbs over the past 2 months.  This is a constant battle as I can never seem to stop reading, watching, thinking about food.
  6. I adore Corrin. - True story.  I do feel like I've probably let her down on this journey...especially after my slip up last month.

Step 1: Organize my closet.
Step 2: Take inventory.
Step 3: Donate things I no longer want.
Step 4: Alter items that don't fit correctly.
Step 5: Start wearing everything!
Step 6: Photograph everything hanging in my closet.  Use pictures to put together outfits.  (Damn you, Polyvore.)
Step 7: Use my savings account as a Dress Addiction account.  Do not spend beyond my means. (And my "means", I refer to my smallish state-goverment-once-a-month paycheck.)

I think we're doing well (in comparison to what we used to spend)@ :-)

I slipped up the first month, then did well for about three weeks, but last weekend I bought two shirts from Old Navy and a maxi skirt from the Gap outlet. $50 misteake. :-(

I'm glad to hear you're being bad, too. But, yeah, I guess we are being better than we were. It's just so hard. Stupid, adorable, irresistible clothes.
