Can You Live With 15 Things?

my closet

One of my favorite new blogs, Love and Trash, had a post up a couple weeks ago about cutting down to only 15 things of clothing. It’s a huge thing for some people, cutting down on the things that most of society assumes you need more of.

I assumed that this would be a no-brainer for me. After all, I had already cut out much of my clothing when we moved. And I’m still in that annoying mid-body shape where I can’t wear maternity cloths anymore, but none of my old stuff fits either. So really, cutting it down should be a piece of cake.

Heh, it was actually a bit tricky.

I was brutal at first, filling a shopping bag with shirts and jeans that I’m not going to hope on ever wearing again. Clothes were flying in a mad effort to purge, purge, purge. Once the initial thrill was over, I started counting.

  • 5 pair of jeans
  • 1 pair capris
  • 1 pair dress slacks
  • 1 long wool skirt
  • 1 long recycled pillowcase skirt
  • 10 warm weather tops
  • 6 cold weather tops
  • 3 pair of shoes

That’s a grand total of 28 things. OK, so maybe paring down to just 15 is harder than I thought.

Could you ever cut down your wardrobe to the bare minimum? If you only had room for 15 things in your closet, what would they be?

    I am trying to figure this out as we speak. It shoul be easy because I know that it should be easy because so little fits me now. Yet it is soooooo hard of letting go of the adorable clothes I could wear before babies 4 and 5 made their debute!
