considered living: wardrobe downsizing experiment

My closet is now reduced to 60% of what it once was, but there still remains clothes that I don’t wear because they are meant for special occasions, or a number of other reasons. It is frustrating to see them linger in my closet, taking up space, getting in the way of what I wear all the time.  So I’ve decided to do a little downsizing experiment.  I’m going to remove all the items that haven’t been worn in the past year and stow them away out of sight.  I want to know what it feels like to work with a closet that only contains my essentials and pretend for a while that this is my entire wardrobe.  After 3 months, I will re-assess what I’ve stowed away with the idea that the experience of having less will help me decide what really can be removed permanently.

Edit:  Just want to add that after I wrote this post, I found some other bloggers who are using this same technique.  People are so clever.  What a great community of people.
