...and counting.  
I have been cleaning my wardrobe out and I would say that I am about halfway through. I've done most of the tops and all the underthings save the brassieres; all the skirts and pants and dresses remain.

In the process, I have discovered a few things.
For one, it is best to clean items out at the end of the season. For example, now is the ideal time to clean out sweaters, jackets/coats, and long-sleeved tops. I merely ask myself a few strategic questions:
a. Did I wear this in the past six months, during optimum weather conditions?
b. Is this really stylish or am I merely wearing it because I have it?
c. If I took it out of my closet, would I miss it next winter?
d. Do I really want to still have this in one year?
e. Does this even look good on me?

I really like my tops tight and fitted, so many things that were baggy or loose are going BAI BAI right now. To put this into numbers:
I have tossed out over one hundred individual garments, ranging from underwear with a hole in it to t-shirts and sweaters, and you cannot tell from looking in my drawers or closet that there are less clothes. Remember, I am only halfway through, and that is being generous.
I AM AMAZINGLY OVERSTOCKED. But it is getting better.

Haha I just need to toss anything that's orange in my wardrobe--should be enough for a decent-sized purge =D

Also--when did you sent the Lugaluga bottle? I haven't gotten anything yet and am wondering whether I should yell at USPS....<.<;

Something's wrong with my PMs on BPAL's forums...they're arriving several days after they're sent. It's weird, but I've had the problem before. I think it might be a firewall thing.

The last time I went to the post office was last Wednesday, so I *think* that is when I sent your bottles. If it wasn't then than it was last Monday, but I think it was the later date.

That sucks =( (and explains a lot!!) The lugaluga still hasn't arrived, which worries me, as it's been like...9 days? Because I'm leaving campus tomorrow, I won't know if it were lost or not until a week or two (leaving time for the college to forward it to my home addy), but I'll keep you updated!

Eep, it's still not there? That's worrisome. :( I hope it shows up soon!

Keep an eye out just in case it bounces back to you for some reason? XD ^_^;

Re: bai bai clothes
They're in that massive Goodwill pile in Ma's room. Haven't you noticed that it's mushrooming out of control?
I also tossed a bunch of stuffed animals in there, you might want to check and make sure I'm not throwing out a valuable childhood memory.

when i got back from college, i needed to get rid of clothes because i didn't have room for them all. and it was stuff i had from as back as the 9th grade. but luckily, i have a cousin who is basically the same size as me so i give them all to her.

I've decided to launch an extensive matha-gramataic campaign to figure this out. You might be on to something here.

Why didn't someone else pick up on that?
Why did it have to be you? :-p

Now I'll have to leave my imperfection up there...wait, no. Screw it. I'll fix it.

Aw, you sound so dissapointed it was me. Why do you have to fix it? All that's going to do is make me look crazy.
I am not Crazy.

I'm still not getting the "6" by the way.

Re: Furthermore
5 is an unlucky number for livejournals, just like 13 is an unlucky number for hotels, so it was skipped.
