GO! Challenge #8: Jeans, Pants & Shorts

Jeans, Pants and Shorts. Today we will take the next step and sort through the clothing for the bottom half.

Sometimes it is easier to break projects into smaller tasks. A couple of days ago, the challenge involved de-cluttering your shirts and tops. Today we will take the next step and sort through the clothing for the bottom half. Our challenge is intensifying a bit each day, as we’ve been increasing the number of items to shed. The challenge is to find eight items from any or all of the following:

  • Pants
  • Jeans
  • Shorts
  • Capri Pants
  • Sweatpants
  • Skirts
  • Leggings
  • Jeggings
  • Tights
  • Athletic Pants

The approach today is similar to what we’ve already discussed. Look for pieces that you no longer enjoy wearing, either because they are ripped, torn, stained, damaged, ill-fitting, or simply no longer to your taste. Many people tend to hold onto pants that are one size too small or large for normal weight fluctuations; this is fine, but keep it to just a couple of pairs.

If the idea of trying on pants seems dreary, here is a funny story that might help you get rid of that pair that is just too tight!

Think you can find eight? Let us know…

    1. I definitely remember trying to lie down on the bed to get my jeans zipped up! I think that was thing for awhile. Needless to say, those days are over for me:)

  1. I admit I held onto my pre-pregnancy jeans for ages. Even after I had gone down to my normal weight, I somehow thought my hips would somehow go away? No. Never.
    Finally I took the plunge last year and junked most of them. Sob. Now I have about four pairs of jeans I truly love.

    1. I probably have about four as well. AND… you have all that space you freed up by taking that plunge and letting go. Funny how we think we will somehow shrink completely back to pre-pregnancy frame. It isn’t even the weight as much as the shape!

  2. I did this last week. I had at least 10 pairs of pants that were too small, out of season, or just made me look terrible. Bonus tip: Ziplock makes those squishy storage bags now for cheap. I bought several sets of them and scrunched down all my out of season clothes to take like half the room.
