    How much do you wear?

    I noticed something today about my husband and I.... We really don't wear a whole lot of different things despite owning two closets and two dressers filled with clothing. I tend to wear the same 10 tops all the time as well as the same 5 pairs of paints. My husband is the same way.


    If I got rid of everything I don't wear or hardly ever wear, I could fit everything in a suitcase. I am planning on going through everything at the start of 2020 and donating a lot of clothes. I just don't need it all. I even have some tops and pants I never even wore.

    Do you wear the same few favorite things all the time or do you like to have a big selection and change things up a lot?

    It's usually very similar. T-shirt and trousers. I'd say my favourite shirt colour is navy blue. Around a decade ago there was plenty of variety in how I dressed and I spent a lot more. I'm just not that bothered.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    KORINKITTY!!! Right this second (or in the near and upcoming seconds...), I think you should absolutely grab all of them non-essentials and bag them up immediately. Bag them up, throw them in the corner of your closet, and go ahead and make it to the start of 2020 without them. Then you'll know for sure those are clothes are the ones you can do without and give them away without hesitation.

    Sometimes, I feel like the best way to do that to myself is to go as long as possible without doing laundry, and after I've exhausted my second-string and third-string options, I'm finally down to the selection of clothes I can really do without entirely. And then they are given to my brothers and nephews!

    And as far as my clothing goes: mainly workout clothes. Both running tank tops and shorts or pants are my favorite things to wear. They're fun to wear around the house, out to do errands or occasionally to work out in. Next to that, I've got a serious addiction with lululemon slacks and polos. Those are what I love to wear when trying to look and feel like the adult I should be at this point in life. ((which reminds me of Episode 13 of OLS last night when Gene puts on a suit to try and get so... I mean, look more like the adult he pretends to be))

    Becoming a minimalist is one of the best ways to improve your life. Like most people, there was a time where I held on to a bunch of needless garbage for no reason at all. However, one day I sat down and asked myself, "why am I keeping things I don't care about?". Giving up personal possessions is difficult at first, but once you actually do it, the process becomes almost intoxicating -- you begin WANTING to throw things away. I have very few belongings now, and frankly I'm all the happier for it. A couple articles of clothing that are clean and comfortable, one or two outfits for special occasions, a few odds and ends to amuse you, perhaps a little box of keepsakes and memorabilia... that's about all you need in this world. The old adage "a clean home is a clear mind" is one of life's greatest truths. When you first begin to throw things away, the materialistic part of yourself (that is present in nearly every human alive) will send a little impulse signal to your brain telling you to feel bad about what you're doing, but if you ignore this signal and simply throw it away, you will never think about those worthless objects ever again. Just consider it for a moment: do you really think that if you throw away an old shirt you bought 5 years ago, you're suddenly going to wake up one day and say "wow I wish I had that shirt again"? Probably not. The reality is, you don't own your things; they own you. The more you throw away, the simpler and more efficient life will be. Keep only that which is most important to you and ditch the rest. You will be much better off.

    And this is why StarDood64 and I share 3 pairs of underwear between us!

    The reason I am waiting is primarily that I tend to get clothes for Christmas and my birthday which is at the start of the year. That and I am working on eating better to lose the weight I gained over the last several years. I am giving myself enough time to lose the weight (realistically speaking) and deciding what I want/need after that. I know there are a number of items I love now that I wouldn't like if I was to lose weight because they would be too loose-fitting.

    I have also a lot of stuff inside of my closet. Those are about 4 Tops for summer and winter each and about 14 shirts.
    It is good for me to have anouph replacement at hand once other things get dirty. Thats about it.
    I wouldnt call me a minimalist in this case but Im also not a collector myself.

    And that is very sensible of you. Sober me isn't quite as drastic, but my close to a decade spent in the military and lifestyle of carrying everything with me when I moved always had me cutting down to only what was required and then spending a couple of years slowly adding things to that here.
    At this point, I definitely understand the need of keeping the bottom of each drawer lined with the clothes that fit during weight and/or size fluctuations! I try to let the clothes that I favor be my weight goal when deciding how much I should work out. I know food is the faster/smarter way to lose and maintain weight, but all the tasty stuff is the stuff you shouldn't eat so much

    My problem isn't overeating so much as it is just eating junk and then sitting at my computer all day. lol Couple that in with hormone issues, my weight has gone up and down since my early teens so I have learned to hold onto clothes that is too small or too big just in case but that has made me become a bit of a clothes hoarder. I at one point had over 20 pairs of shoes alone when I really was only wearing 3. I cut way down on that and have cut way down on my clothes over the years but I have to still keep things more simple. I can always buy new clothes but I hate clothes shopping. I find things I really like and then because of silly fashion trends, they go out of style and I can't find them for years.

    2 pairs of black cargo pants, 4 or 5 light flannel button ups, 1 pair of black Vans, approx. 8-10 T-shirts and a pair of boxers/socks for every day is my full rotation. When I go to conferences/speak in front of sizable crowds or coworkers I don't see often I'll wear my tailored suit and pretty myself up for the big boss man, but since I'm a database admin it doesn't really matter what I look like most days.



    When new staff members join us or when new student workers show up I'll wear a dress shirt and tie.
