I have now completed three and a half weeks of the 6 items or less challenge…BUT… I’m sorry to say I had a melt-down last Wednesday.
I’d just had a brand new haircut which I thought would give me a boost…but then I walked home up Brooklyn hill, arrived home with 3 of my items now sweaty, found one dress crumpled in the corner and other dress damp on the line, friends on their way over for dinner and I couldn’t stand it one second more. I went and put on a whole new outfit and…it felt sooo good!
Having strayed from my goal it was of course all too easy to stray further, and so the next day I wore a different dress to work.
But on Friday I strengthened my resolve and I’ve been back on track since then.
So – yes this challenge is difficult and getting more than a little boring, but, I’ve filled up three bags with clothes I am now ready to give away. And I’m that much closer to a simple, pared down wardrobe that will pack itself nicely into my backpack and move with me to Canada.
PS. No one at all has noticed I keep wearing the same things! Or are they too polite to say?
