We did have a decent size closet. We shared the hanging space and still had plenty clothing items, despite downsizing a few times. (Sometimes it is a process.) Our new closet is about 1 foot wide. We brought all of our hanger clothes over to the new space and went through them on the tailgate. We gave some items to a friend and donated the rest to the local Free Store.
I also got rid of the rest of my small appliances. The only items I kept were my immersion blender and my toaster. We even took our microwave to the Free Store after finding out that someone took the community microwave from there. I wish we'd taken them our coffee maker, too. Alas, we donated the other appliances to Goodwill. I also accidentally donated some coffee mugs that held some sentimental value. I don't have a single cup for drinking hot tea. I'm working on that.
Back to the closet, though... our jeans are folded / rolled at the bottom of a lower cabinet. Elmo has 1 week worth of work shirts folded at the bottom of the closet seen above. Otherwise, those are all of our shirts (and my dress and skirts). That isn't for a particular season, that is everything (other than what we were wearing at the time). You can see the divide, half of it is his and half mine. There are a couple of items for the babies in the middle.
We have done some amazingly hard core minimizing! If we get an apartment in a few months, it will surely feel quite empty! How many clothing items do you think you need? I've seen other minimizing challenges for closets.
Let me know if you have a Monday Minimalist post and I'll share it on my blog.
