My friend and I were talking about laundry today and she commented that she, with her big, non-33 wardrobe unlike mine, could go about 2 weeks between washing days, at which point she would divide everything between a few different washes (dark colors, lights, etc). I didn’t think about it at the time but I realized as I was putting laundry away tonight that even though I don’t usually, I could also go about 2 weeks without doing laundry most of the time too.
You know what the big difference is though?
At the end of 2 weeks my closet would be almost empty. I would have worn almost all of my clothes.
The average person will probably still have a closet full… Full of stuff they don’t like, that doesn’t fit very well, is out of season, or inappropriate to their “season of life” right now (business clothes in a SAHM’s closet, or painting clothes in a busy professional’s closet).
The stuff that’s left over in your closet after 1-3 weeks of wearing your favorites is the stuff you can pack away…
Just a thought.
