Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted.
In any case, I’ve been running a new experiment and wanted to jot down a few thoughts.
This new experiment is inspired by the big Z, Mr. Mark Zuckerberg who implemented this a long time ago –> wearing the same outfit every day. I read Marie Kondo’s book The Magical Art of Tidying Up a few months ago and got a huge benefit from cleansing my wardrobe.
I’d been thinking about ways to simplify my life and take things away to add value, as most times I try to add more. I figured since I didn’t do much for my birthday, it was a perfect time to buy 10-15 of the same t-shirt and take closet simplification to the next level.
What would happen if I wore the same shirt every day?
Well, as it turns out, not very much, which is amazing. I almost forget that I’m doing this deliberately anymore. Easily the best part is that I always like what I’m wearing. If I like a shirt I like it. So everyday, I put on something I’m happy with.
Secondly, I don’t have to think. Some people enjoy putting together a sexy outfit everyday. I care far more about what I accomplish at work, if I get a workout in, if I eat right etc… So as Noah Kagan would say, I’m focusing on the essentials.
Third and last, I am going to save a TON of money. Each shirt cost me $9.90 at Uniqlo, and I bought 10 of them. With another 10, I think I could get rid of every other short sleeve I own. There’s no temptation to get anything else, it’s so easy and black and white. Well actually, the shirts are a dark blue.
Add any pants. Shoes. And I’m out the door!
If anyone else tries this, I’d be super curious to hear your thoughts.
