Do you look into your closet and feel overwhelmed? I used to feel that way, too. Perhaps it is time to simplify your choices. For the past couple of years, I have participated in Project 333, started by Courtney Carver. Basically, every three months I pick out 33 items of my clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, and jewelry to include in my wardrobe for that season. The rest of my clothes are tucked away in my dresser drawers for the next round. If you’re telling yourself that is great for you, but I could never do it, don’t be so quick. If 33 items doesn’t seem like enough for you, change the number. If you don’t want to count shoes, don’t (I didn’t count jewelry this time). If you are serious about giving it a try, though, I suggest checking out Courtney’s starter course. More people are growing tired of excess and desiring simplicity in their lives. This desire to minimize one’s possessions and distractions is catching on.
The Denver Post interviewed me recently for an article about simplifying your wardrobe: http://www.denverpost.com/smart/ci_25959708/minimalist-clothing-challenge-spurs-closet-clean-outs
