As a nice compliment to my growing interest in minimalism, I just found this article posted on Jezebel.com (actually, I found it while once again scrolling through Lifehacker, but the original post is on Jezebel).
It briefly summarizes the clothing challenge called “Six Items or Less”, the main concept of which is committing yourself to wearing only six items of clothing for an entire month (certain necessities like undergarments excluded, of course).
It’s funny that I’m stumbling upon this little article now, because I think it would be a good way to experiment with a minimalist approach to wardrobe, which would in turn give me an introduction to the broader minimalist lifestyle that currently fascinates me. It would also help me discover which items in my closet are the most versatile, and therefore most worthy to survive my closet-purge (which I’m beginning tomorrow, by the way).
I’m in. Consider this my official commitment to “Six Items or Less”, beginning, let’s say, Sunday the 16th and lasting until February 16th – or beyond. Who knows?
