After my day of shopping I decided to start the New Year with a fresh 33.
I find that every time it gets easier and quicker to pick my 33. Maybe it is because I’m learning what pieces I have and how they go together, and maybe a little because I only fit into half my clothes now.
I am pretty happy with what I have to work with this season. My best friend bought me maternity jeans for Christmas, I must say they are the best thing I never would have spent money on. They are so worth it. I want to live in them, and they are much more flattering than jeans that cut into my belly.
It is funny, this time when I was putting everything else back into boxes I thought to myself, “Why do I have so many clothes, do I actually wear all of these?” The more that I minimize the “stuff” in my life, the more I see clutter for what it is. On the other hand, it is almost like having a mini shopping spree for free when I open the boxes. It is refreshing without breaking the bank or adding more to pile of junk.
I did get rid of 3 items to the “give away” pile. I bought 8 the other day, so it doesn’t completely even out… But this is still a process.
New Year is a time when people think about goals and fresh starts. What are some ways you are going to simplify your life and “stuff” this year?
Have a Happy New Year and enjoy your 33!
