When putting away my winter sweaters and finer knit/wool tops in storage containers for the spring swap of summer wear, I was reminded of how much clothes I have and what I would actually wear this coming season. I also realized that I didn't really need to 'shop' more as I have enough variety to choose from. I certainly have more than six 'office wear' tops. But I do like to shop. Sometimes it serves as retail therapy. Angela has made a number of important points when considering future purchases:
- assess what you want first
- invest in what you need
- get creative with what you want
- invest in staple items before spending significant change on the trendier pieces which has a short lifespan
I know I won't commit to wearing only six items for a month but I do need to think about the purchases I am considering to buy and whether these are impulse purchases or investments in staple items that will compliment clothes already in my closet.
