Are you a fan of the simplicity/minimalism movement?
Are you successful in all your minimalist habits? I know I still struggle to know what’s worth adding to my closet or home, and what’s not worth purchasing. But I’m working on keeping my wardrobe to a small, but effective, size. I’ve been trying to do so for the past few years. Right now, I believe I have around 35 items in my work wardrobe.
As we celebrate Halloween and don our costumes that we probably won’t wear again, I think this is the perfect time to address the clothing that I have in my normal closet. Wouldn’t it be great to wear everything I own before re-wearing anything? This would make my closet an equal opportunity employer.
So my idea is to document each day, starting tomorrow, what I wear and keep track in my closet of what I haven’t worn yet. As I wear each item, I can make a note of what I think works and what doesn’t anymore, and brainstorm ideas for future item purchases that might be versatile and work with many of the items I already own.
Do you have a capsule wardrobe? Or do you struggle to find something to wear even though your closet is overflowing? Maybe a simplified closet would help you to keep only your best clothing and get rid of the rest!
