30 items of clothing, 8 pairs of shoes, 2 bags
Yes, you heard me right. There is a sense of relief in not purchasing new things for your wardrobe. Perhaps you can relate, if you’ve experienced it before.
I have been minimising my belongings since last January, and though I have considerably slowed my spending, I still consume actively. What I mean by that, is that I’m still considering purchasing things a lot of the time, even when I don’t physically buy things.
That is not necessarily a bad thing. I consider my purchases because I want to make sure I’m getting the most appropriate items, to reduce clutter and waste in the future. This has been how I have managed to build a small wardrobe that suits my needs. The analysis and evaluation can get draining though.
My wardrobe shopping fast has given me a break from that. In setting boundaries for what I can and cannot buy, I have given myself a sense of freedom. I feel a sense of relief because I am not thinking about what might be out there and which is the best product to suit my needs. I feel a sense of relief because I don’t have to worry about it, I have no choice but to simply enjoy what I have.
