~I don't even know where to start~

We had a yard sale (side note: I hate yard sales, both going to them and having them. Never.again.). I went through my clothes that I have stored in the basement. Three bins full of clothes, mostly full because they represented a variety of sizes from when I was losing weight. So I went through them and pulled a LOT of stuff to put in the yard sale (side side note: I sold one dress in the yard sale, everything else went to the thrift store. Next time I'll start with a trip to the thrift store. It's easier.).

Because I was in the middle of losing weight last year, nothing fits me this year. Well, that's not entirely true. I have a bin with these six things in it:

I don't even like three of the six things in there. True story.

I honestly don't know where to start. I literally need everything this winter (outerwear, coats, church clothes, every day clothes, pajamas, etc.)! It's overwhelming to me to even think about it! I found this wardrobe planner, which looks helpful. I just need to print it and start planning!

Any helpful hints?

If some of your garments are quality, you could just alter them to fit the new you. I've done that with many things that I love and have grown too small for. As a matter of fact, I have a lovely LL Bean coat that I have had for 15 years. It has been taken in and let out many times over the years, due to pregnancy and weight fluctuations.

Just a thought!

Oh what fun!!! I'd probably go to several Goodwills. I have purchased beautiful clothes, designer ones that I normally would not be able to afford at Goodwill. I'd start there. I'd get some things at Kohls and if you have a credit card, you can often wait for the 30% off coupons. Congratulations on the weight loss!
