It’s been almost three weeks since my three months doing Project 333 ended.
The decluttering has to continue. Slowly bags of unneccessary clothes and other items are leaving the house. The pace has to speed up though.
My first three months of Project 333 ended on Canada Day. I immediately went through the boxed up extra clothes and accessories. What started as four bins ended up as two. One bin worth of crap was donated. Another bins worth of stuff was reincorporated into my wardrobe. The last two bins were packed up to live once again in the garage.
I still plan on donating more of my clothes. After trying on items that were stored, I realized I don’t like a lot of them. They don’t look good on me or reflect my style. I will have to find a few more casual clothes to replace them. No t-shirts or khaki capris.
My work clothes need to be supplemented soon. None of my clothes for work really suit or flatter me. I did learn through the challenge that I can’t survive on only 5 work items. I mean that I CAN…but I can’t. I had to do laundry almost everyday. That is NOT environmentally friendly. So more is better sometimes.
I will start appreciating my jewelry more and try hard to wear it occasionally. If I do the project for another three months I will not be including jewelry. That’s not my problem. It’s too many clothes. Too many unflattering clothes that end up on the floor instead of put away or in the hamper.
I only have one body. It doesn’t really need that much.
So participating in Project 333 has really opened my eyes to what I really need and want. Hopefully my wants won’t win out as much now.
