Working on 30% reduction goal

If you remember one of our 2009 goals was to Reduce our material possessions by 30%. I'm not taking that goal laying down. This weekend Matt and I went through our closets.

We were able to purchase a ton of nice wooden hangers when Steve & Barry's went out of business for $.03 a piece ($.50 cheaper than in the stores). I love our new hangers because they don't cause your clothes to bunch up and they take up more room in our closets which means we were forced to get rid of stuff.

It always amazes me that when you take the time to look for opportunity it always seems to find you. I've been wanting to update to wooden hangers for years now, but even when I was a shopaholic I wasn't going to spend $.50 a piece to upgrade. Yet, even now as a thrifter I can't pass up $.03 to go all wooden.

So yes even though I did technically bring in "new" hangers, we are getting rid of the plastic hangers shown above and we reduce our clothes collections. (pictures to come)

Great find on the hangers! I wish I could find a deal like that around here - I'd love to change out my hangers, too.
