Day 15: Project: What Not To Wear

I had so much fun with this Project. My husband didn't know it, but he actually helped me with this one. He stayed home sick, so he was able to watch our son while I went shopping.

This project requires you to get rid of one piece of clothing that your husband doesn't like - even if it's a favorite!

This was a no-brainer for me! I've got 4 pairs of pj's that are OLD! Not to mention slightly less age-appropriate, and certainly not sexy in any way, not that that is my goal. . . . I also have a few t-shirts that aren't exactly flattering and some shirts whose collars have certainly seen better days - so . . . out they go!

Now for the fix. A local store is having a clearance sale - 70% off the LOWEST price! I really was shopping for myself, but ended up getting more for my husband and son (who seems to grow more quickly these days). I did replace 2 of the 4 pj's with cute little pink knee length pjs with cute buttons and some girly touches. what fun! I also picked up two slightly more flattering shirts and a nice pair of black slacks so I can occasionally go out without wearing jeans!

Ok - then I got some 2T, 3T AND 4T basics for our son, and a few shirts and a sweatshirt (a very nice one) for my hubby.

In all a great day - got rid of a few less than complimentary items from my closet (underwear drawer too!), and purchased over $550 in clothing for $197 including tax (which is a whopping 9%).
