Can I live with only 33 clothing items for 3 months? Well I’m going to try. It seems like a very natural thing to do and inline with the de-cluttering. I’m very into having specific numbers to work with so having 33 as the number makes me happy. On April 1st (no it’s not a joke) I will be living on only 33 apparel, shoes and accessories. In preparation clothes have started to be packed up. I even gave away a sweater I won’t need.
- When: Every three months (It’s never too late to start so join in anytime!)
- What:33 items including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes.
- What not: these items are not counted as part of the 33 items – wedding ring or another sentimental piece of jewelry that you never take off, underwear, sleep wear, in-home lounge wear, and workout clothing (you can only wear your workout clothing to workout)
I have to factor in completely separate work clothing. I have allotted 5 items for work including a pair of shoes. It might not be enough. Really it is like I have only 28 items to choose. Luckily I am not that into jewelry. Other than my wedding ring (those don’t count) I only chose two other accessories (necklaces) to keep. There are already two Rubbermaid-type containers full of clothes I think I can live without ready to be ignored in my garage for 3 months. The final 33 items will finalized closer to the 1st but have been loosely decided already.
I will post the final list and pictures before the 1st. Wish me luck!
Any tips from those of you that have done the project?
