NSV Link-Up - Cleaning out the Closet

buttonWell heck!  It is 5:47 and I just realized I hadn't written today.  I am joining in with KTJ again on Non-Scale Victories Link-Up.  Why it took me so long to get here is because I was cleaning my closet... again.

You know what is great about losing weight and toning up?  You "under-grow" out of your clothes. 

You know what sucks about losing weight and toning up?  You "under-grow" out of your clothes!

Every month so far this year, I have had to go through my closet and shift out the stuff that no longer fits (in a good way).  I am getting to a place though, that I have little left that does fit.  I know, I know, it just means I get to go shopping.  Anyone tried clothes shopping with 2 small children?  Does everyone remember my failed Target attempt a few weeks back?  Yeah - well, that means internet and returns for me.

Today's clean machine began because a package arrived from Kohl's.  Woot!  I am in desperate need of jackets, plain t-shirts and other basics.  Some of it worked, and naturally some did not.  So my NSV today is that I did manage to get a few new things that fit.  My failed NSV is that once again, I have to make a trek to the store and make returns.  Whomp! Whomp!

Happy Thursday, all!


  1. I don't have kids so I can't completely sympathize, but I have to think that it's at least a little worth it to shop for smaller clothes :)

    Great NSV!

  2. Such an awesome problem to have! Enjoy! And I totally feel your pain on shopping with 2 kids in tow. Before I had kids I swore I'd never be the mother in the target with the kid running up and down the aisles. Now that I'm her, I totally understand that at least I can hear the pitter patter of feet and know exactly where that kid is while I attempt to find the stuff that I need.

  3. Thanks so much for linking up this week! Having to buy more clothes is a great NSV! May not be the best on your wallet, but that is so awesome that you are going down sizes! Go you!

  4. Love buying clothes because everything is too big-I only have the one small child and we DO NOT shop-can't even imagine trying it with two! I stick with Old Navy and American Eagle for basic T's and tanks because I have worn them at all of my sizes and know how they fit.

  5. Shopping with 2 small kids is difficult. I understand because I have two very active kids. They have a hard enough time following directions, paying attention and controlling their shopping excitement. Great to know about your nsv this week.


  6. Thats awesome that things are too big! I am hoping to have that problem soon! :)

  7. Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
    quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting
    provider at a honest price? Kudos, I appreciate it!
