2018 is not pulling its punches on big changes. This Friday is my last day at my office job. It’s time to put the dog-trainer plan into action. As of Sunday, I’m full time at the doggy daycare and I’ve got a Wag orientation on Tuesday (Uber for dog walkers). My other side hustles are Poshmark and Etsy (I make jewelry).
I need nice clothes of none of these. The daycare has a uniform t-shirt and I’ve found that athletic pants are optimal though I may do jeans on cold days. I have a couple of hoodies in the right shade of blue. I never expected to hit 30 and hoodies more than office wear.
This resulted in me doing another closet purge. I kept more than I should have but I wasn’t totally read to part with most of my dresses. I did part with several other pieces including several costume pieces. I realized my costumes were taking up a big part of my closet spaces and since I won’t be spending that much time at conventions, I should scale back a bit.
This is a stack of some of my costume pieces. I still had a drawer to go through.
I still need to go through my jewelry but part of my plan is to incorporate some pieces into what I’m hoping to sell on Etsy or use them as gifts. Jewelry just gets in the way when dealing dogs so I can and will cut back on that.
I kept more cute/nice clothes than I probably should have but I wasn’t ready to part with some of it. I’ve still got a big pile to list on Poshmark and will be going through my Poshmark page to see what is and isn’t selling. Whatever isn’t selling or I don’t want to list will go to thredUp. They want to expand their plus size collection and I’ve got more than enough to help with that.
