Etsy Love: Halloween Costumes

The question on my mind as October approaches:  Lily's Halloween costume, to make or to buy?   
After seeing these creative costumes on Etsy, I might be leaning towards buy.

Simplifying Your Closet

I love love love organizing and de-cluttering.  I think it's fun to clean out old items to make room for the new.  I am not the type of person who gets attached to things like clothes or shoes, so when I feel like it's time to get rid of something, I toss it in a bag for goodwill and move on.  And I enjoy it, too.  I came upon this list at Young House Love and think it's a good rule of thumb to keep in mind when organizing your closet.  I definitely need to work on a few of these:

  • If you’re unsure about a big ticket item, put it on hold for 24 hours and think it over.
  • Don’t buy anything that doesn’t flatter you or isn’t comfortable, no matter how of-the-moment it is.
  • If you have to talk yourself into a purchase in the dressing room, pass on it.
  • If there’s nothing in your closet to wear with it, skip it.
  • Never purchase something just because it looks good on someone else.
  • Don’t save a pair of jeans for that anticipated five-pound weight loss. Owning them is bad for your psyche. If the time comes when you drop a size, chances are you won’t hesitate to run out and buy a new pair.
  • If a stain didn’t come out at the cleaners or when you toiled over it in the sink it’s permanent. Time to let it go.
  • Don't buy anything on sale that you wouldn't consider at full price. 
  • If we kept every item of clothing with a memory attached, we’d be buried in clothes.
  • Ask yourself if each item of clothing in your closet: 1) flatters your shape, 2) fits perfectly or is fixable, 3) is the right color for you, 4) has been worn in the last two years – only things that get four yesses should stay.
