I've created a monster and that monster is ME!!!

Okay so this "cLEaN CLoSeT EvenT" is really taking on a life of it's own... I sent out an email and a facebook message this morning to tell people about what I was doing(honestly it is still making me giggle that I am actually doing this)... but already in a matter of a couple hours I have had ton of response....a few people are going to be away on the day that I am holding it, so they have asked me if I could get some stuff together for them that I think they might like...hehe this is just so fun.........I feel like a personal shopper...yet it is in the comfort of my own closet....but this seems to be where the problem lies.....

......I am starting to find myself heading back into my closest, thinking oh I think so and so might like this...hmmm maybe I will put that in the bag for her to try....or well I don't actually really wear this and I think it would look so great with this, that is already in the pile of stuff to go........THIS MUST STOP.....as my husband calmly said to me last night...."this is all really really great Michelle but remember you do still need some clothes to wear yourself"...hmmm he does really have a point here doesn't he.......
......but you see what he does not get(or at least I hope he hasn't figured this out yet) is that this mind of mine works in a very mysterious way....every time I take another top or pair of not so loved capris out of the line-up...I think hmmm this is great....now so much more room for something new....it is like my subconscious mind is working overtime here...planning the next huge shopping trip...hehe
...the other problem lies in the fact that I just can't do things simply...."T" did asked me on the phone yesterday as I was giving him all my details in a very high-pitched excited voice, "now Michelle this whole thing isn't going to cost you money right.. this "event" (said with a bit of sarcasm) is not going to cost $100 right"???

Oh no, no not at all......YIKES......It is like I am hosting a huge event or something....I have called a rental company for some coat racks so I can display things properly...I ran out of my price tags last night so I ran out to get some more....I could have made do with just some scrap paper and safety pins...but no that wouldn't have been good enough for me, now would it....it has to match, all go together......HELLO MICHELLE you are having a glorified yard sale...honestly get a grip......

I even caught myself in the shower this morning thinking about a cool playlist I could put together for some fun "shopping music"......oh and maybe I should have something to drink for everyone..........seriously....what the heck is wrong with me????

So as I sit here and type I am trying to get a grip.......I do actually like most of my clothes in my closets and well clearly my social calendar is not busting at the seams, but I do still need some fun clothes.......I do need to go to work everyday....so I think I will officially stop the search....my closets are off limits.....what is on our guest bed, and floor and hanging of the doors and drawers.........(this is obscene) but that is it....no more.....hmmmm but what about that basket with some fun hats and scarves....maybe I should just take a quick peak......lol

cheers...and happy shopping.......

I totally understand. Whenever I am planning something, my mind goes berserk coming up with new ideas to tack on to make things interesting, pretty or fun.

I actually think your idea to have drinks is AWESOME! It will certainly make people stay longer and hang out, so that means that they might buy more clothes.

I am the same way...and I have to stop myself, too. It's so easy for me to go overboard and drive myself (and everyone around me) nuts. LOL You are right: it's just a glorified yard sale. And every penny you spend is money you could have put towards new clothes. :) You could just as easily hang your awesome coats on a broom handle between a couple of ladders as fancy coat racks. Just keep it simple. You don't want to stress yourself out. It's so easy to find yourself up at midnight the night before pressing one last shirt....A playlist is a GREAT idea, though. We always play music and it really seems to keep people in a good mood; and people in a good mood spend more. :) Can't wait to hear how it goes.
