wardrobe experiment...




Today I tackled a new project for the new year.  I have been inspired to cut down drastically on the amount of clothes I own.  I only wear 3/4ths of my clothes anyway, so it's just a matter of clearing the rest out.  It's hard to bring myself to get rid of clothes sometimes, so I am trying a different approach.  I took out all the clothes from my closet, and sorted the ones I'd really like to wear for the next few months, trying to keep the amount at a minimum.  I put those back into my closet in somewhat of an organized order. (Note: Landon's tshirts are on the bottom shelf of the closet, I only took up half the hang up space and the top shelf!)  Then, I got rid of a couple things I knew for sure I won't wear again, and the rest went into a big pile.  I put those into a bin and will keep them, but after 2 or 3 months, I'll open it up again and then get rid of as much as I can.

After this round, I am really wanting to try the Project 333 to get an even better perspective on my wardrobe and it's impact on my life.  For now, I'm getting a little more strict with myself, but allowing for learning room.  I will try to keep clothes buying down to a minimum, but also keep an eye out for high quality pieces my wardrobe could use.

And you know what?  It feels so great to look at my cleaned up closet!

I love it! I've been doing something similar. I desperately need to get rid of a TON of clothes I don't wear anymore, and I've gotten super picky about what I buy. It's a great feeling!
