Project 333

Here’s my 33 so far… but I need help!

Here is a picture of my 33 items so far. The problem is I need at least one more tank top. Hopefully June will be nicer in BC this year and I will need more summerier clothing. What can I get rid of?

  1. I love the dresses!!! Luuurve them!!!

    I’ll try to help you cut it down but first can you tell me what 3 things you could live without for a couple of weeks??? (reason I ask is because remember we can rotate 3 items in as long as we rotate another 3 out)

    Hope that helps, I’m joining project 333 on April 1st too but haven’t even included shoes yet… Oh dear ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh, I forgot about the extra three! Well I think when it warms up I won’t need my rainbow sweater, my grey v-neck sweater and either my green cords or military jacket.

      • Perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

        Sounds like you’re pretty sorted! I’m trying to decide if for the first 3 months I just won’t include shoes or if that feels too much like a cop out ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Ha ha ha! I have been finding odds and ends all over the house and wonder whether I’ll have them all packed up in time.

  2. I am going to do this – but I dont think I have 33 items in total in my rucksack – especially not id=f some of them turn out to be lounge wear.

    • You’ll like it. For me it has improved how I dress (outside of the house, that is). Only the best items I had survived the cut. Now I just have to decide my approach for the next three months.

    • Well I’m sure anything less than 33 is even better ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’ve loved doing the project and I’m going to carry it on. It’s easier at the moment because in England the weather is so rubbish but consistently rubbish so I’m going to keep the same 33 items I’ve had for the last 3 months ๐Ÿ™‚
