Clothing update

November 22, 2010

Journal, Lauren

So, I said I’d keep you posted about the clothing chart, and I have three words for you: I. love. it.

There are a couple of things in storage I'll add when it snows.

Basically, I have about 17 short-sleeved shirts, 11 long(er) sleeved shirts, 6 sweaters, 3 pairs of jeans and 7 pairs of school pants. (Also a handful of no-sew split-shirt jacket things which I still think are stylish but I realize that they’re not.) Having a chart shows me what hasn’t been worn in a while, so I look for a shirt with few wearings and put that on in the morning. It also helped me weed out a couple of shirts that I never wore at all.

I realize that I need to replace a couple of pairs of pants since they have shrunk and are too short, and I really should buy a dedicated ‘nice’ shirt to wear to church.

What’s your favorite outfit? Mine is my second-best pair of jeans and my green shirt that I spilled cooking oil all over and can never wear again. R.I.P., green shirt. You never made the list.

    Dunk the whole shirt in cooking oil, then wash. You’ll have a new favorite shirt in a different shade.

    Your chart reminds me that I always forget to get extra summer shirts for winter. I like to wear short or 3/4 sleeves year round at work so I really end up wearing the same stuff too often. Stupid forced hot air.

    You have way to much time on your hands. Can I send you some of my chores? 🙂

      Sure, if those chores take five seconds in the morning. (You have to read that with a Napoleon Dynamite voice for it to be the most amusing.) 🙂
