    Well done Lori! We all have way more than 33 items, but interestingly I doubt any of us wear more than that excluding my husband’s work suits, school uniform and team sports clothing. There are other areas we need to work on first though. Books and toys spring to mind 😉

    (p.s. clothes, not cloths)

      did I mess up the spelling? I will see if I can fix that. Thanks :)

    Great job guys! I think that I would like to do this, mainly because I feel like the laundry is never ending. I’m sure I would still be doing a lot of laundry, but having fewer things to put away…that would be nice. I swear my husband has 100 pieces of clothing, and wears them all within two weeks of each other!

      it does work out to less laundry (I think). I do 3-4 loads a week. Usually 2 on Sundays and 1 or 2 during the week depending.

    Hi Lorilee. I find shirts for my tall husband at Old Navy and JCP. I get them during sales. We find shirts with and without collars.

      thanks! The stuff he does have is from Old Navy. The stuff he has I got him at Old Navy online last year I think. I will have to check them out again :)

    Nice job keeping pretty true to your interesting closet challenge! The few months you spent downsizing to number 33 probably ingrained a habit of reducing your wardrobe and you won’t have to consider numbers as much.

      Hi Lori, Could your daughter wear tights or leggings under her dresses? When I was growing up in Hawaii in the 60’s and mini skirts were in I always wore shorts under my dressses. They were short enough that you couldn’t see them unless you were looking where you shouldn’t be. The boys in high school used to sit on the stairs with mirrors on the steps to see up girls skirts. We hadn’t heard of sexual harassment back then!

        thanks :) I will go hunting. I had some longer ones for this purpose in the winter. I need to get out and find the short ones.

      Heather, that is what I figured. I like how numbers are tangible but I like using them to challenge me instead of lock me in. Either way, I thought the 33 items was pretty good for us. Not including work clothes or exercise clothes makes it more doable for other too.

      na, it only seems crazy when you start. After 3 months it doesn’t seem crazy or inspiring at all :)

    A tip for your immodest dress lover (I have one too!) leggings!!! Best thing ever for girls. They don’t pill or run like tights and summertime can be Capri style. Just an idea to bring peace between you two regarding wardrobe.

      Alisha, actually I have picked up a few pairs for her since the post and she loves them! I just need to find some in the right colors to match all her dresses and I am set :) Nice to meet you!
