We Did it Too (to get you started)

1. Throw out your ugliest, rattiest, outdated t-shirt. We’ll show you ours, if you show us yours.

Beth: So I found it a little difficult to find a really good example of a ratty shirt. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no minimalist (stay tuned for Cheryl’s note). I have a good sized wardrobe, I love to shop, but I LOVE to throw things out (See the pictures below of MY contribution).  A good tip – if you see pills or rips on a piece of clothing its time to get rid of it!

Cheryl: Unfortunately, due to my 10 year old rule of ritually forcing myself to toss 2 items (clothing/accessories) every time I purchase something new, I don’t have a ratty t-shirt to discard. But in keeping with the spirit of the challenge, I’ve helped Beth, the Shopping Queen, part with some of her stuff. No cats playing musical instruments, but we’ve met the challenge nonetheless.

Tip: Getting rid of an old t-shirt is a relatively easy toss away task. They tend to evoke little sentiment (even band t-shirts have a shelf life), and are easy and inexpensive to replace. If you’re looking for a second life for your old t-shirt, we suggest reicarnating it as a dust rag. Continuing to wear ratty, old, faded, pilled, ripped shirts prevents you from being the pulled together, polished person we expect you are. Why else would you be reading this blog?
