Every now and then, I count each item in my total wardrobe. I pull open my dresser drawers, scan the closet, and check the laundry hamper. This tally includes clothing, shoes, scarves, outerwear, sunglasses, hats, gloves, and purses/bags, (you get the picture). I do count underwear and socks as 1 grouped item. I’m not aiming for some magical number, but I like to see that the overall sum isn’t increasing. Practicing Project 333 helps and I try to follow the one in one out rule throughout the year, but I’m not meticulous about it. My number as of today stands at 109. I was surprised to see that I’ve actually accumulated two more items since my last count. In that time, I realize I added a slip and a pair of shoes. It looks like I could find two more things to clear out. I’m glad I counted, because those purchases could go easily unchecked and add up over the months and years. When was the last time you did a wardrobe tally? I find that it is a helpful simplicity exercise and a good reality check. Decide what number works for you, whether that is 50 items or 300.
