A Change of Clothes

October 15, 2012

in the generous life

From The Generous Wife archive:

As the seasons are changing, go through your clothes and get rid of items that don’t fit, look worn/old or just don’t look good on you any more.  Pack away any off season clothes.  Look at the clothes that remain and mend, hem, etc. 

Is there an item or two that will dress up what you have?  
Is there a color that your husband likes to see you wear?  
What do you need for the holidays?

Do you need any new seasonal wear (winter for some, summer for others)?  
Don’t forget to get some pretty undies or sleepwear/lingerie.

When you’re done with your clothes and accessories, offer to help your husband with his.

Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.  A. A. Milne

A generous wife asked if I would put all of the 13 Things I’ve Learned About Marriage on one page. Ask and ye shall receive.


Thankfully, Tom and Debi, of The Romantic Vineyard, did the same thing for their 13 Fall Date Night Ideas

Just last week I noticed my reflection in my church’s windows and realized how unflattering the jeans were that I was wearing. It was enlightening and frustrating all at the same time: those *were* my most comfortable jeans, but I knew they weren’t my husband’s favorites. So I passed them on.

BTW, the heart you made out of the two hangers is so creatively cute!

Thanks for your marriage tips & encouragement.

@Naomi I wish I could take credit for the picture, but it is a stock photo (if you roll your cursor over the picture you will see the copyright credit). There are some lovely creative people out there.
