Cleaning Out My Closet

For the millionth time, I’ve run into a slight dilemma with the closet situation: I have my pre-partum clothes (25 lbs less my current weight and could wear whatever I wanted – this includes fancy clothes and office clothes and a few casual pieces). And I have my post-partum clothes (office wear since I started…
