Project 333

Project 333 – Wearing just 33 items over 3 months. 

The Basics (from the Project 333 website):

    • When: Every three months (It’s never too late to start so join in anytime!)
    • What: 33 items including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes.
    • What not: these items are not counted as part of the 33 items – wedding ring or another sentimental piece of jewelry that you never take off, underwear, sleep wear, in-home lounge wear,  and workout clothing (you can only wear your workout clothing to workout)
    • How: Choose your 33 items, box up the remainder of your fashion statement, seal it with tape and put it out of sight.
    • What else: consider that you are creating a wardrobe that you can live, work and play in for three months. Remember that this is not a project in suffering. If your clothes don’t fit or are in poor condition, replace them.

I came across Project 333 a little over a month ago and was quite intrigued by just wearing 33 items.

Since I already had a small fall and winter wardrobe, I didn’t think it would be too difficult to pare down to just 33 items. However, factoring in shoes, accessories and outerwear into that figure of 33 quickly made it a bit of a challenge.

I ended up taking everything out of my closet (shoes, outerwear, clothing and accessories) and laid it all out on my bed and then began picking out my favorite items and the pieces I wear with my favorites. After 30 minutes of ‘shopping’ my own things, I had a 33 piece wardrobe hanging in my closet.

While I haven’t exactly completed Project 333 since 3 months have not passed yet, it’s changing my ideas about my wardrobe. I really think a 30-35 piece wardrobe is more than enough for me. (This mindset will save me a lot of money when it comes to purchasing spring/summer clothing!)

Over these past weeks, I’ve been completely content with everything in my closet, never worrying about what I’m going to wear.
