I gave away quite a lot and put some up in the upstairs closet (just in case I really can't live with this pared down selection). I am a big Money Saving Mom fan and she is a MINIMALIST in all aspects. I am not, but I try not too keep things we don't use/need or love. She recently posted a few blog posts about her TINY wardrobe. I found this one to be particularly inspiring. In fact I printed it off and my daughter and I have talked a lot about it and how we could implement this into our own clothing.
A couple of weeks ago I did a closet purge and then today I really dove in and pulled out another half. My wardrobe is a little more complicated than some.... I need:
- *work* clothes.... ya know the kind you wear in the barn, garden, butchering animals and to doing home remodel projects.
- I also need clothes to wear on the job site ( I work part time for (and with) my husband in our Ceramic Tile business... thus I have to have work shirts with our company logo and jeans
- I also have my "home days" clothes
- and clothes for volunteering at the school, going to church, bible study, date nights and the few extra nice things for weddings and funerals.
I am excited to live with a small wardrobe again..... I grew up with MINIMALIST wardrobe and home and don't ever remember feeling deprived. Now I need to go through my kid's clothes and pare down with them, too. Keep what we LOVE and use and get rid of the rest!
What about you?? Are you a minimalist or fashion queen?? I want to look *cute* sometimes, but I have to admit that comfort is my main thing.
Have a BLESSED day,
BE a BLESSING!
