Double 7 – Wednesday!

We are at day 3Β of my 7 day thing.

Since I started my blog, I have been slowly downsizing my closet. (it seems to be the thing we women do πŸ˜‰ )

I’ve probably gotten rid of about 50% or so, since I started my declutter thing on this blog in 2014.

Since I left the workforce (soon to be two years ago – my how times fly), I don’t have to dress up for meetings or change from work stuff to everyday wear everyday. These days, I pretty much live in the same type of outfits all the time – jeans, t-shirt and a sweater (weather depending).

Since I changed my diet (for health reasons) last year, I lost about 15 kilos or so. It took quite a while before my weight stabilized, and since it was fluctuating quite a bit there for a while, I only got new pieces of clothing when I absolutely needed something new that fit me (it’s not that fun walking around in clothing that is way, way to big).

I’ve stabilized now.

It’s hard though, to downsize, as I have clothing that are good quality for those special occasion like party’s, Christmas and other meet ups. Even though I only use about 30-40% of my closet on my daily outfits (remember – jeans and t-shirt kinda girl). I still need to keep the other type of outfits around.

Since I happen to be kinda picky about what I wear (even when it’s only jeans and t-shirts), I’m having a hard time finding suitable replacements that fit my current size. Which unfortunately means, I’m still hanging on to a few items to many of my old stuff.

I have not given up hope that I one day will have this beautifully curated minimalist wardrobe… and the only way I’m going to get there is to forever chipΒ away at it.

Which brings me to today’s declutter write-up!

I have found a few more closet items, to say good buy to πŸ˜‰

8 t-shirts
2 workout tops
3 fleeze
2 pars of thick socks
2 sleepwear
2 caps
1 wool jacket
1 sweather
1 pair of flipflops
1 pair of boots
26 items out-the-door!

7 Day tally = 282

Grand total for 2017 = 1299

Guess that is it for today, see ya tomorrow πŸ™‚

    1. It takes time, doesn’t it? I know that compared to most of my friends, my closet is positively empty, it’s just to me there is still a little too much. I’m sure I’ll get there eventually – but then again.. I have no idea what I will do with all the empty space in my closet if I downsize even more πŸ˜‰

        1. Thank you! It’s wasn’t really all that intentional, the first 5 was (had to fit back into the bikini πŸ˜‰ But the rest I had no control over as it all came about when I changed what I ate… actually there was a moment we were all starting to get worried as I lost to much weight, way to fast. Thankfully I’ve added a few pounds and have now stabilized on a very (to me) comfortable weight – my step mum still think I’m to skinny.. but.. I’m liking it πŸ˜‰
