This afternoon The Duke and I decluttered our wardrobes. I did not have a lot to go as I had gone through my clothes when I decided to join in Project 333. However, there were a couple of things which had survived the previous cull.
The Duke sorted through shirts which had seen better days as well as a few other things.
Here is the bag to go to the op shop.
I also sorted out the hangers. We now have everything on the same type of hangers (plastic-coated) except for The Duke’s trousers which are on special trouser hangers that we bought from Howard’s Storage World some time ago and clip hangers for my skirts. We have a lot of excess hangers (we must have had more clothes at some time) so this pile are going to the op shop.
I have kept the spare plastic and trouser hangers that match the ones in use.
We have also made a list of the clothes we need to buy. The Duke will need 4 more business shirts and 2 pairs of trousers. I would like 1 or 2 pairs of trousers for work. I also need to buy an outfit for a wedding we will be going to next year. None of these are necessary right now as we have enough to get by so we will look until we find the right clothes at a good price. We are considering waiting until we are in the US later in the year.
It was useful to regularly review exactly what clothes we have and consider what else we want to buy.
