I love talking to people who are just starting minimalist fashion challenge Project 333 and then hearing back from them at the end of 3 months. It always seems to be a transformative experience.
Even though there are seasonal start dates, you can start anytime. This is a personal challenge. No one will be grading your closet or tracking your progress and this won’t go on your permanent record or credit report.
If you are considering a simpler wardrobe, but aren’t sure if this is the right time, here are …
10 Reasons to start Project 333 Right Now
1. Prove yourself wrong.
You think you could never do this, but there is only one way to find out. This is not a project in suffering and there are more blessings than sacrifices.
2. Save money.
You won’t be buying anything new for your closet for 3 months. You can take the challenge for free and if you decide to participate in the Microcourse, what you spend will be a fraction of the cost of your next impulse clothing purchase.
3. Create time.
Getting ready for work or an evening out takes no time at all when you are working with a tiny wardrobe. You’ll have extra time immediately to do something more important than trying to find a scarf that matches your shoes.
4. Meet awesome people.
The best part of Project 333 is the people who participate. The Project 333 community is connecting and sharing their challenges and lessons in really meaningful ways.
5. Shake things up.
If you are bored, frustrated, tired, overwhelmed, exhausted, unmotivated, scattered or distracted, it’s time for a change. Do something new, fun and challenging and discover clarity and inspiration.
6. Gain perspective.
If you have nothing to wear, even though your closet doors are about to explode, it’s time to put things in perspective. One more dress or pair of shoes is not going to make you happy or stylish.
7. Harness the power of simplicity.
If your closet isn’t the only cluttered area of your home and you’ve been wanting to live more simply. Start somewhere and use the momentum to tackle your whole life.
8. Inspire others.
Instead of telling friends and family how to live, show them. Demonstrate the benefits of simplicity by walking the walk.
9. Discover your personal style.
After 3 months of dressing with 33 items, you’ll know how to put an outfit together and what clothes best fit your body, personality and lifestyle.
10. The right time is right now.
A year from now, you’ll wonder why you didn’t get started sooner. Shut down your fear and excuses and get started.
