For last few days I have been packing and packing only and still there is so much yet to pack. I tell you, you should not waste money after buying clothes. They are useless. They don't have any resale value and after few years, they lie abandoned, buried under piles of other clothes. If you are to shift houses or places, the big headache apart from furniture are the clothes. Just buy clothes as per your need and wear them out before spending money on new ones.
I was a bit shopaholic by nature, specially immediately after my marriage, the way I went into a shopping frenzy often, the money spent would have bought me another new car. Last time when we packed our stuff and shifted to Bangalore, I left behind at my home two big trunks full of clothes. I received tongue-lashing from my mother but since I have always been an unruly child, I hardly paid any heed to her years of wisdom. As they say few people learn by peeing on the electric fence, same goes for me. I don't take any lesson to my heart until I make mistakes and forcefully learn.
Now that am again shifting, packing clothes and segregating them - for use, for dumping at home and for donating to an NGO are a herculean task. I wish I would have known that shopping under the influence of madness entails a side effect of this measure :(
