1 Spring is Almost Here . . . Have You Made a Dent in your Closet?

Spring is still a month away, but looking ahead seems to make the winter go so much faster. January or February is the perfect time for companies to make improvements that will have a major impact on the current fiscal year.

She was tired of hearing me complain that I had absolutely NOTHING to wear, when she knew differently. So, even though I thought it was a waste of my time and money (the price a pair of designer shoes) I agreed. The activity for me was daunting but hiring a professional made it easy and even fun. What I discovered (I will stick with just black pants) was:
