    So many old sweaters to get rid of. It helps when i have only one that's the coziest. My goal: to be able to fit all my everyday clothes that i own in one suitcase. ALL of them.

      already live in one. When my husband moved in with me he came with one dresser, one bookshelf and one dufflebag. I on the other hand have part of a storage unit plus everything that was already in my room...time to clear out :)
