If you looked in our closets you would never guess that we have just removed 125 lbs of clothing from them. Yikes, I just didn't remember I had so much stuff. Of course it doesn't help to have "fat" clothes and "skinny" clothes--the ones I'm in and the ones I hope to be in when we get back--you know what I mean. I always admire those who really do live simply and keep only a bit more than necessity. Alan does that and has a much easier time packing; he puts in the important things first--like any tools he thinks he might need --and fills in around them with a few clothes that will turn out to be just the right amount. Whether we have too much or too little is moot now. We've packed and closed the lids and hope it'll be just right.
