Keep or throw?
Muse #399 - the sign of the "wait and see" times
A lot on the Thomas Oppong’s list that I shared yesterday made me smile. I talked about #23 yesterday. Today I am going to wonder about another one from that list…
37. Get rid of clothes you haven’t worn in more than a year. It’s a start to decluttering your wardrobe. If you haven’t worn it in more than six months, chances are you will never wear it.
The pandemic has changed everything in the last two years. At this time, I have several shirts I haven’t worn or even touched, Blazers that I have not worn, and trousers that I did not get to. The virtual meetings mean that most time I am in my jeans or recently in winter months have been wearing snow pants inside the house. For the layered warmth.
But the question that I keep coming around to is whether I would be back at work in person at all. And if so, how many days a week. And even if so, what would I wear to work? A mask may be?
I have slimmed down my wardrobe a lot with a process of when I use something which I don’t like much when I wear it, I wash it and put it in the donate pile. It does not go back into my wardrobe.
I am making an exception to the garments rule to see what happens in 2022. If at the end of this year I don’t go back to potential patterns of what I usually wear to work - then perhaps more than half my shirts, trousers and blazers will go into the donation bin.
This is the time of wait and see. Wait and see what new patterns of life emerge. Until then, my clothes are going to hang in there with me. Literally.
