OK, Christmas shopping doesn’t count because you’re shopping for other people. But apart from that one playsuit I bought from Club Monaco back in August, I haven’t hit the stores for clothes for at least 5 months – until now.
It was difficult at first, of course. And to prevent myself from spending any unnecessary money, I did the best thing possible. I stayed home as far as I could to keep myself from getting tempted by any opportunity that could have presented itself. Thanks to my lucky stars, the papers ran stories on Japanese minimalistic living at around the same time and capsule wardrobes started getting popular everywhere. Till now, that has really helped! Finally, not only is it OK to not have that much clothes, it is also cool.
