To tell the truth, it’s not like I usually purchase a lot of clothes throughout the year anyway. A couple years ago, I tried on EVERYTHING in my closet and only kept the items that I truly loved to wear and had a spectacular fit. It was hard letting go of certain items because I knew how much I spent on them or because I felt like I got such a great deal, but in the end it was TOTALLY worth the pain. I may have fewer clothes, but I never have a time when “I have nothing to wear.” My closet now only has things I love to wear. And when I go shopping now, if the fit isn’t 100% right, I don’t buy it. So, the end result is that I buy fewer items, but they get worn a lot more.Furthermore, I am adding a couple of additional limitations to my RTW Fast.
1. I will complete at least one “NEW” wearable garment per month.
2. I will complete at least one “UFO” wearable garment per month (unless I have none remaining – haha!)
3. I will not spend more than $1000 in total during 2014 to compete the garments. (This does not include anything already in my “stash”, but does include anything I purchase to complete UFO projects as well as new ones.)
Don’t forget to check out some of the other 2014 RTW Fasters as well!
