i'd like to think that i am a very proactive person when it comes to cleaning out my closets and organizing my dresser drawers, but to be honest, usually the only reason i clean them out is either because i can't close a dresser drawer, or i get so frustrated with hangers fighting with other hangers for lack of room in the closet. i get so upset that i just start cleaning house like a mad woman.

this is how i came to clean out my dresser drawers this weekend. i couldn't close either of the two drawers dedicated to t-shirts. it's great to have a ton of t-shirts to choose from if need be, but the fact of the matter is that if you can't see them all because the drawers are too full, what's the point of having so many. so i either had to get rid of some, or buy a bigger house. the first choice seemed the easiest.

as i was cleaning (recklessly, mind you) the drawers out, it came to my attention that i own an inordinate amount of grey t-shirts. i love a nice grey t-shirt. they just seem more cozy and cute to me than any other color. but honestly, i don't need as many as i had.

i won't even tell you how many i owned, and i won't tell you how many i got rid of. frankly, it's a little embarrassing. i will tell you this, though ~ the amount of just grey t-shirts that i got rid of was over five....if that means anything. and i've said too much (because the amount i kept is more than the amount i got rid of). now i have really said too much.

happy monday!
