So, it's been almost 3 weeks since I started my project to wear only 33 items of clothing/shoes/accessories for 3 months. It is fun. Weirdly, I actually mean that. It leaves me space to think about interesting things rather than, well, laundry or ironing or mending things. I HAVE to iron things and wash them and mend them, or I run out of things to wear. It is good for me.

The one thing that I'm finding difficult is jewellery. I love the things I chose (two necklaces and two pairs of earrings), but I have some other things that I also love that I would like to be able to wear. I am going to stick to it for this three months, but I might vary the rule for the next three-month period so I can have maybe 30 items excluding jewellery, and wear whatever necklaces/earrings/bracelets I like.

I'm still pensive about the rest of my minimalism project. The idea (via [livejournal.com profile] xugglybug and [livejournal.com profile] dennyd) of cataloguing my books really appeals to me, because anything where I can't be bothered to scan the isbn in is probably not something I should keep. It will be a long project though. And I don't want to get rid of books as such, I just want to get rid of the ones I don't like or use. (Weirdly, yes, there are some.)

Jewellery is a hard one, I do tend to not wear much on a day to day basis but especially in summer it is nice to wear different things because it is just a bit more personal than clothes, I think. Also, you have some amazing jewellery - I'm sure I remember this amazing necklace with a typewriter key in it.

I also like your minimalisation project. Which is in no way related to the fact that I am sitting on the sofa at home wearing a mask...

Yup, I had to keep that in my 33 items! It was a present from my sister and I love it!
But there are other things I love too...

And glad the mask found a good home! You are so sweet (or mad...) to wear it while browsing LJ!

I'm still putting off project 333 for now as a lot will depend on what happens next week. However, I will definitely not be including shoes, jewellry or bags. I think I've downloaded to 33 bags (but I wouldn't swear to it) and I'd like to aim for less than 33 shoes and I doubt I'll get down to 33 items of jewellery. So I won't be counting scarves, gloves or hats. At the moment I can fit my clothes into the wardrobes I have and for now that will do. I'm still aiming to de-junk the rest of my room tomorrow, but clothing will come later.

Ha, I haven't really dejunked at all, in that everything that's not in the 33 items is under my bed. So I still OWN way more than 33 things. Couldn't face actually getting rid of them. That'll be the next stage...
