We quote lines from our favorite episodes of Peep and the Big Wide World often. This one has "It's the least a duck can do" and "You can't; you're a fish!" and "If this is a museum, you've gotta have an acorn". It's a sweet episode with a hidden little lesson on life possibilities (a fish *can* wear sneakers), but there are plenty of museums that don't have acorns.

I was reminded of this while reading Anchie's recent post, in which she considers that black essentials might not be essential for her anymore...maybe she doesn't need them at all. Cindysmith commiserated, saying "I used to think I had to have certain things, too. Then I realized that I never wore those things. Basic black pencil skirt, trench coat, white button-up shirt, red lipstick, basic black flats... "

That got me thinking if there is anything in my wardrobe that "has to be there" that really doesn't need to be there at all, because I never wear it. I think jeans come closer than anything, even though I wear them occasionally.

What about you? Is there anything you've thought you "had to have" in your closet that actually didn't need to be there at all?
