This spring I’ve been reflecting on all that I have learned from my capsule wardrobe so far.
1. Taking intentional, purposeful breaks from shopping has made me more mindful.
Now I only buy items that I feel are missing from my wardrobe and I shop smarter. I feel much more present in my life and more in charge of my choices. I listen to less of the advertisements and marketing that we are constantly bombarded with and I listen to myself- its so freeing!
2. I buy better things.
The clothing items I buy now are of better quality because I am buying fewer, better things. Not all of my items are more expensive but I think so much more about what I am buying and where I am buying it from.
3. When I used to encounter stress or problems in my life I would try to fix it with stuff. If I was bored? I’d shop. Feeling unorganized? Buy storage containers. Overwhelmed? Organize my clutter.
