One thing I love most about travelling is getting my possessions down to the basics. I’ve come to stay with family for a few weeks and only have a handful of clothes with me. How simple it is to pick what to wear! I have a casual outfit (jeans), a fun social outfit, a sophisticated outfit, and two professional outfits. All I need to do is put on the outfit that suits the occasion. No rummaging through my wardrobe, no spending hours choosing what to wear, no panic in front of a pile of clothes, and no doubt about whether I made the right choice.
I read an article recently that said that women spend nearly one year of their lives deciding what to wear. According to this article, “on average women will try on two outfits each morning before coming to a final decision. And one in two women spend 15 minutes the night before work working out what to wear.”
We spend so much time figuring out what to wear because we either have too much to wear or unsuitable clothes to wear. Imagine how much time we could save by reducing the amount of clothes we own and by refining them to what is essential for our lifestyle. In doing so, we would reduce the hesitation, uncertainty and confusion of choosing an outfit from endless unsuitable options. So how about it? Let’s save time by decluttering, organizing and prioritizing!
