The weather is slowly changing here and so office talk turned to the seasonal wardrobe change. This led to the best shops to visit for a refresh.
Usually I would do my change over but try to identify gaps so I could purchase items. This time I brought all my learning together. Between now and October 5th I barely get a chance to breathe. I average one significant work event every 2 days.
So I emptied all my clothes and only grabbed the thingsthat gave me an immediate thrill (KonMarie). I then planned what I would wear every day between now and the beginning of October. I tried on the outcits, wrote a list and packed away the clothing in order.
I tried to keep to the Project 33 spirit:
9 tank tops
While Project 33 is supposed to incorporate all clothing worn outside of home I opted to keep it to my work wardrobe. I haven’t counted my off hours clothing but since it’s only taking up 2 of the 4 drawers I’m feeling good.
The surprise for me was that I had no desire to go shopping once I completed the activity.
I’ve found by switching my clothing regularly I spend less on clothes while weeding out things that don’t suit. Currently it appears I shop my closet every 2 months.
I’m happy with this change as it has given me a greater appreciation of what I own while being easy on my budget.
What tricks do you use to keep your clothing budget on check?
