Seems I never have enough room for everything even after donating what I no longer wear.
Which closet?

so her survival wardrobe, without counting, i estimate she has 25-30 shirts or sweaters in the closet and 15-20 pants, one suit, 10-15 dresses, 10-15 shoes. then a dresser is full of t-shirts, shorts, pj's, socks and underwear. for comparison i have about 2/3rds that.
Oh, my god. A woman after my own heart!

I am a sahm.... and my career wear from teaching almost 7 years ago is a tad out dated... so that is on its way to the curb if it hasn't already made its way there.... I have had two kids so I have fluctuated sizes in the past six years.... finally back down to a six but my style is nothing to exciting at the moment............ and I don't like a lot of what is out there right now.... I have already been a member of the 80s so don't really feel like reliving that one.... and I am too young to be thrown full throttle into the MOM department in my opinion... even though I am a mom...... sitting at 31 I don't want to look like I need to be driving a minivan....Ya know? So, too much and not enough...... Ya know? LOL.........

Way too much or was it not enough???

I have about 10 pairs of jeans and at least 15-20 other kinds of pants.
I also love dresses so I have some of those, too.
Nearly all of my clothes fit into one closet but I have to get rid of some of the older things soon.
When summer/winter comes I put the clothes I don't need way up in the closet and take the ones I need down for the time being. This also makes me review them once a year and decide whether they get back in the closet in one of the lower places or not.

But it's always the same when we go out I never have the right thing to wear. I guess it's the problem most women have.

I use most of the closets in the house because I have my regular work wardrobe, a casual wardrobe, a party and special occasion wardrobe and my ballroom wardrobe. Each gown takes up the space of what would ordinarily be three items, so they have their own closet. Then shoes ... aye yay yay!

Wish I had that much space for ward robes. Everything would be more orderly and look much better. And not to forget - much more space to buy even more clothes

I actually prefer to store my clothes carefully in containers. If they sit in a closet, they may collect dust or get moth holes.

I have an 8x10 walk-in closet that's filled to overflowing. If you want to take an inventory of the clothes, be my guest.

In all fairness, 80% of my clothes are too small since I quit smoking in 2006. I've just begun my newest New Year resolution to lose the weight I gained back then so hopefully I'll be able wear that 80% and toss the 20% I'm wearing now.

I also have a nice collection of vintage clothing that I love to wear. The trick is to mix vintage pieces with current ones so you don't look like you just stepped out of a Nick at Night sitcom.
