Project 333: Week 13 Update (Final Week)


I’ve reached the end of my Project 333 experiment and I barely noticed.



My takeaways:

  • I learned that 33 items of clothing (31 to be exact) are more than enough for me to live a happy life.
  • Actually, it can be lesser if not for my day job which requires me to wear 5 sets of outfits every week.
  • Even less if I discard my corporate jacket, black leather shoes, watch, and my rarely-used cream slacks. (Would have had only 19 things.)
  • My happiness isn’t directly proportional to the size of my wardrobe.
  • No one notices what I wear week after week after week. (Or maybe, I just don’t care what they think.)
  • Clothes don’t make me a better person.
  • Choosing which clothes to wear in the morning shouldn’t be on top of my decision-making priorities.
  • I now wear all my clothes and I like all my clothes. Unlike before where a few items here and there are just occupying precious closet space. 
Overall, it has been a wonderful experience.

Matter of fact, I think I’ll go on with it. Not as an experiment anymore, but a lifestyle.
