I've come across several bloggers talking about a capsule wardrobe over the past year, and it's caught my interest. Since moving in the summer, I have been in the habit of sorting through my clothes every few months to see what I don't need. The idea of wearing 30-37 pieces per season definitely sounds like something I could want to do.
I've been reading the book Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider, and it's been putting some things in perspective that I have been challenged by this year so far.
While trying to save, and serve, and keep the house clean, stuff seems to consume my time more than anything else. Think about how much time would be saved tidying the house if you had less stuff!
I've decided to start with my closet, and pair down what I need for each season. Getting rid of those unworn items, and giving them to someone that I know will benefit from them more than me, has been a gratifying feeling. I want to make this year about others, and less about myself. Living with less stuff will hopefully open the doors to new opportunities, more time, and a clear mind.
