For a US Woman, I have a very small wardrobe, probably not more than 50 pieces total, and it’s pretty unexciting wardrobe. I wear the same clothes in the same ways over and over. Recently, I discovered the website (http://www.puttingmetogether.com/p/one-item-many-ways.html), and I was intrigued. The first outfit she shows is a somewhat long t-shirt worn untucked over jeans. Hey! I do that! All the time! But look, then she’s showing the same shirt other ways. It was a revelation to me. I tried it; I looked good.
Then it occurred to me that imaging your wardrobe more functionally, with more potential matches, means that you can build a larger and more versatile wardrobe with fewer pieces of clothing. Check out this site and then look in your closet. There are surely items that you can and should declutter, and most of them probably don’t need to be replaced. Think about it: What can you wear in a new way?
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter excess bath towels and in future only replace them when they wear out ~ Judging from many of the linen closets I encounter, during visiting friends and relatives, I would say the people generally replace towels on a far too regular basis. Not because they are no longer capable of the task of drying but simply because they are considered decor items that are to be replaced when tired of.
Eco Tip For The Day
When cooking on an electric stove top, turn off the element at least one minute before you are finished cooking. The pan will retain enough heat to finish the cooking process while you save a minutes worth of electricity. Every little bit helps.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow
