33 Clothing items
Could you do it?
My experiment in minimalism continues. What started with Operation: Consolidation as a goal to de-clutter my life and my attic, has crept into my closet.
What originally started for me was reading an intriguing concept by Nina Yau, where she decided to push her limits and wear the same clothes to work for 7 weeks straight. Seems like a strange experiment to most, challenged her mentally. Best part, almost nobody noticed.
Then I found Project 333 by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less. A challenge to all people dabbling in the minimalist lifestyle to take a long, hard look at their wardrobe. For herself, she found that she would rely on a few staples in her wardrobe, just like most people.
Project 333 challenges anyone who is interested to take their wardrobe and pare it down to 33 items, and wear only those 33 items for 3 months, with a few notable exceptions:
- Wedding Ring
- Gym Clothes
- Around the house loungewear
So that means 33 items includes:
- Work Clothes
- Weekend Clothes (going out clothes)
While it might seem like a daunting task at first, I think it provides a worthwhile challenge.
