Six Word Saturday

I need a whole new wardrobe

I'm pretty sure that calling all those clothes in my closet a "wardrobe" is a bit of a stretch, but whatever I call them I wish I could just pitch them and start from scratch. Every morning I look at a closet full of clothes and have nothing to wear.

Since getting rid of everything doesn't jibe too well with reality I guess I need a better plan. Creativity is not my strong suit so I will probably just start with the tried and true-if I haven't worn it for two years out it will go, to a good cause, of course.  At least maybe then I will at least have fewer things that I don't want to wear.

To participate in 6WS visit Cate here


  1. I keep everything. My closet is so crowded. Sometimes, though, I go shopping in my closet and find things I hadn't worn in years or forgot that I had. Much less expensive than the alternative.

  2. I just got a new small summer wardrobe...I had a need though. But I know that feeling when your closet is full and there is still nothing to wear!

  3. You're speaking for thousands of women everywhere!

    Great post & great blog!
    Happy 6WS - and look forward to *seeing* you again next time!
    Mine’s HERE!


  4. When I was working, my older daughter helped me pick clothes and find new innovative ways to put clothes together I couldn't see. She would have me try on an outfit and then she would dig through all my clothes and come up with other tops or jackets or accessories and I would have many more outfits than the way I would do it. I got to where I could see very different ways to use things and get a pretty cool look.

  5. Hi,

    I see you needed a recipe for Bienenstich. Check out this site, they have a lot of good Mennonite recipes:

  6. I just did that last week with my winter clothes. After being in a closet for 8 months, there was only a few items I wanted to wear. So instead of keeping them for another year, I brought them to the second hand.
    I know the feeling well, of standing in front of the FULL closet, and having NOTHING to wear! :)
    Luckily, for work we have to wear a uniform...

  7. I'm the same way. I wish I can go buy a whole new wardrobe too. I just get a new piece here and there. At that rate, it'll take forever. Good luck!

    Happy SWS and have a great weekend!

  8. I so know that feeling! Happy 6WS!

  9. I hate the clothes that fit me and love what's in my closet that's too little but I'm working on it!!

  10. with six kids and always providing for them I could use a whole new wardrobe myself

  11. Yes, I know the feeling well! But I like your last line...having fewer things we don't want to wear is probably an improvement on the present situation!

  12. Jeanie, I think most women have that problem. I know two for sure, you and Mrs. Jim, :) Of course you need winter clothes where you live.
    Happy 6WS! My train has stopped on 6SW.

  13. loved your 6-word Saturday entry today, Jeanie. I need to update my wardrobe too. Sad thing is I have lots of things I like to wear but can't fit into these days (but I'm trying to work on that). My problem is I don't work outside of the house, but at home in jeans or whatever, so I don't have any nice business casual or whatever you call it since I tend to live in jeans and tee-shirts or sweatshirts

    have fun going through your closet :)


  14. Hi Jeanie,

    I'm in the process of cleaning out my room. Its a real challenge is it not? I mean, I've gained weight and I wonder if I will eventually loose it? And I already know the answer to that question.LOL. Good luck with the project. Passing by from 6 WS. Thanks for sharing.


  15. I just come home from Academic All State Award Ceremony, My older son wins the award among 100 students around the state, it is $1000 in cash.
    I am so very tickled by your lovely comment.

    Thank you for the encouragement.


  16. I can certainly relate to looking in my closet and having nothing to wear.

    Do you have girlfriends who are your size? You could all do a clothing swap and get some 'new to you' stuff for free. Then you could donate the unclaimed stuff to charity.

  17. I know what you mean. I also have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. It seems I wear the same 4 things over and over. I bet I could get rid of 3/4 of my clothes and not ever miss them.
