Letter to a Teenage Girl

All those shoes!!

Why do you have so many shoes?

Oh my gosh! How many shoes can one person have? I mean really! Are you Imelda Marcos? You have so many shoes that I cannot walk in the house without stepping on your shoes!

Where do you get all those shoes? Do you buy them in the stores, or do you go shopping at online shoe stores? I guess I don’t really have room to talk. After all, I sure have a lion’s share of shoes in my house, but they at least fit into 2 little shoe trees with a couple pairs of boots.

OK, don’t get on me about my boots. I love to wear boots and I have about eight pair last time I checked. I should have more but some pairs disappeared without a trace. Kids, you know? They borrow your thinks and forget to bring them back. I’ve lost quite a few things that way, but I’ve also acquired things in the same manner. After all, if they can wear mine, I can wear theirs!

On to other things; do you even know how many tops you have, or how many skirts that you don’t even wear? Why do you keep wearing those blue jeans that I can clearly see the color of your panties through! It’s funny how you think that style means half the skin in your body has to show through holes in your pants.

One thing is for sure, between all those shoes, boots, and clothes, you would make a killing at a local garage sale. You should consider that. You probably could pay for a semester of college with all that stuff. Do you really need it?

Furthermore, if you got rid of some of that stuff can you imagine how much fun it would be to get online and shop for an entire new collection of shoes, boots and wardrobe items? There is so much that someone can do if they just put their mind to it, and you have a pretty good mind. Get rid of some of that stuff and pocket the money, save it for school or Christmas, or pay off a long overdue bill.

I’m not telling you that you HAVE to sell your clothes but it is a reasonable request, don’t you think? After all, you’re only 14. You have a great deal of growing left to do and a great deal of new fashions to buy. This week’s shoes will be next week’s basket case. If you just go through that closet once every six months and get rid of anything you have not worn in that time, you will have exactly enough to put together a garage sale that will give you more stuff in the future! It’s so easy. Get your girlfriends to come and give you a hand. Then they can help me with my wardrobe and shoes, too! You know that I could add to that garage sale, too!
