Well, lately I’ve been in a small living space with my whole family. We are 6 people big. 🙂
My husband loves to collect t-shirts. Apparently he isn’t the only one either. (Maybe it’s a guy thing.) My oldest daughter loves dresses, so many frilly dresses! Not to mention that my oldest son gets so many clothes donated to him!
How do we do it? Well, we have a closet. A closet that has hangers. And you know what, those hangers are great. We pack that closet in the neatest way possible.
Next, we downsized. We went from 6 dressers to 3. That also means we downsized with our clothes. Right now our living space size is temporary so our need to downsize in clothes is temporary. But we needed as much clutter free space as possible.
We packed up clothes and sent them to the storage unit. We each only have nine, yes nine outfits each. Every one has two drawers, except the little one. The little one has one drawer. It works out nicely.
There isn’t as much laundry to do either!! This is a win friends!
Instead of worrying about where to put everything, trying to keep up with all the laundry in a smaller space than the norm, and getting overwhelmed, we are living a basic clothes lifestyle.
Guess what else!? No one has noticed, or at least said anything about seeing repeat outfits. Plus with nine outfits you can get a jillion different matches, so like a jillion new outfits!
My kids are still adorable in their 9 repeat outfits. Yours can be to!
My husband still has his favorite t-shirts out plus a few dress shirts, all in a limited number. He’s still as handsome as ever. Yours can be too!
Now I said this is a temporary situation, but it could become permanent. No clothes stress is the best! 🙂
