Minimalist Series: What’s in My Closet

The closet was one of the easier places for me to minimize. This was a problem I solved long before becoming a Minimalist. It all started back in College.

I owned far too many clothes when I was in College. I chose the word ‘owned’ because I never touched many of the items that hung in the closet. Even though these items were never worn, the sneaky bastards always seemed to find their way into the dirty laundry pile. I could never decipher was was clean and what was dirty. So I had to wash everything… (Sound Familiar?) I hated doing this laundry, so I started donating the things I wasn’t wearing.

Below are the items I currently own:
