Having a party this year motivated me to get my butt in gear so that I could go through my closet before the event. My awesome mother came over and helped me stay focused. (Otherwise I'm like a brand new puppy...cute, but in a pathetic way cause I keep running around in circles and accomplishing nothing.)

The normal state girls had spring start per calendar year around end of March. They did awesome re-orgs of their closets, and then started wearing shorts and skirts and sundresses and culottes. (So, yeah, I wore culottes when I was like 10 and would never wear them again. But my point is there is sun and warmth somewhere on this earth. I want it.)
I know there is still stuff to go through on top of my new dresser, but hey. We made a TON of progress. I'm getting rid of my old (pretty) dresser because it had three very big drawers...and they made it hard for me to keep things tidy. I got one of those assemble yourself things from Target instead:

After we were finished, I realized I had really, REALLY wanted to do before and after shots. I suggested to my mom that we could dump everything out again so I could fake a "before" shot.
Seriously, you would think the woman who gave birth to me would be more supportive of my blogging career.
Notwithstanding my crushed dreams of becoming a super-blogger, I managed to survive and brought two big boxes of clothes to the swap party. Well, maybe like a big bag and a laundry bin. But basically boxes of stuff.
The only tough part was not taking home more than I brought. Cause doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose? I promise to try and post some photos of the good stuff I walked out with.
