If you have been following my blog, you would have read about my shopping spree at Vegas Outlet. I bought seven dresses, a pair of shoes for work, two pairs of sneakers, a pair of running shoes, two pairs of jeans, nine casual tops, two sports tops and a backpack.
After all the shopping, it’s time to give away the old and replace with the new. The first area that I worked on was my shoe cabinet as that’s the easiest area to start tidying.
I removed four pairs of worn-out shoes and replaced them with my newly bought shoes. After cleaning and rearranging my shoes, I am ready to tidy my wardrobe.
First, I took out all my clothes from my chest of drawers, went through my t-shirts, jeans and sportswear. Then, I took out my work clothes out of the wardrobe. Follow by all my autumn and winter clothing like coats, jackets, pullovers, scarves, hats, etc from my wardrobe. Finally, my handbags.
I took the KonMari approach, picked the stuff that I want to keep or spark joy instead of going by the elimination process.
Besides the KonMari approach, another approach I adopt to simplify is for every new item I bought, I need to give away at least one existing item. At this revamping of wardrobe exercise, I gave away more than what I bought in Vegas. For instance, I gave away four pairs of jeans, replacing with two. I also gave away more dresses than I bought in Vegas.
I am surprised by the number of clothes I have. The last I tidied my wardrobe was just a few months ago where I packed three bags of clothing and shoes for giving away. And now another three bags of clothing, shoes and bag for giving away.
No more shopping for the next twelve months after this shopping spree in Vegas.
Last but not least, I need to watch my diet and exercise regularly that I may not gain weight and continue to fit into my clothing especially the dresses I bought. 🙂
Happy Simplifying! Less is More!
