When the bar in my closet collapsed under the weight of all my clothes, I knew I had to do something.
I threw away a lot of stuff during this weekend’s fall cleaning project, and I put even more stuff into “to-donate” boxes.
I do stretch this rule quite a bit—workout clothes don’t count, a tote bag doesn’t count, the like-new Danskos I found at Crossroads ($22.50) didn’t count because, I don’t know, they’re waterproof? Maybe shoes shouldn’t count, period.
I want a tote bag that looks nice and professional, and I want to bring my lunch to work. I need these two options to co-exist, and I’m finding more and more that they don’t.
