My spring 2017 Project 333 collection

12 April 2017 | Comments [0] »

When I decided to try out Project 333 in July of last year, I decided it would be a year-long experiment in trying to dress with less. This is my fourth quarter, so the year is almost up. I’m still loving it!

Curious about Project 333? Ask Courtney Carver!

17 March 2017 | Comments [0] »

On July 1 last year I started Project 333 the experiment in which I dress from a collection of only 33 articles of clothing, accessories and shoes for three months. Ever since, I can’t stop talking about the freedom it has brought me.

My third Project 333 collection!

2 January 2017 | Comments [2] »

In July, I started what I think will be a year-long experiment with Project 333, the challenge created by Courtney Carver of the Be More with Less blog, in which participants dress from a 33-item wardrobe collection for 3 months at a time. I heard Courtney speak here in St. Louis in June and was intrigued.

Yesterday, I spent a little time picking out my clothing for the first quarter of 2017. Here’s the thing that struck me: The longer I do this, the easier it gets. The first two times, I narrowed options down to 40 or so and then had to whittle that away. Yesterday, there was no whittling. My first pass at a collection was less than 33, then I added a couple of things. The whole process took me fifteen minutes or less.

Worth repeating: Packing light is worth the effort

8 December 2016 | Comments [0] »

I’m in the midst of my annual December trip to visit family in Washington state. I wrote this post in January 2016, after circumstances required me to travel light on this trip two years ago. I realized in looking at it this morning that I didn’t think twice about packing just a carry-on-sized bag for my nine-day trip. Since I’m in the midst of Project 333 and have only about 33 items of clothing from which to choose, it was a no brainer. Traveling is a great time to experiment with getting by with fewer clothes.

Time for a new Project 333 collection!

3 October 2016 | Comments [2] »

September 30 was the end my first Project 333 season. From July 3 to yesterday October 2, I had only 33 wardrobe items from which to choose when getting dressed each day. In a nutshell, the 33 items included clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories. It did not include underwear, sleepwear, loungewear, or exercise clothes. It also did not include dog-walking clothes. Please read my August 1 explanation of Project 333 for complete details.

My adventure with Project 333

1 August 2016 | Comments [2] »

Maybe you’ve heard of Project 333 It’s the brainchild of Courtney Carver of Be More with Less. She designed this challenge for herself in 2010 and encouraged her blog readers to follow suit. It swept the nation and is going strong. It dovetails nicely with the current interest in minimalism.
