  1. Very creative way to “try out” downsizing. This could be applied to so many areas of one’s life.

  2. I am going to pack later today for a 5 day trip and having my Project 333 wardrobe will make it much easier even though we are headed to a slightly warmer place!

    I have heard about Project 333 and have been interested in participating. I might jump on the bandwagon! I lost about 20 lbs over the last year, so I had to buy new clothes. I’m not planning on purchasing more, other than a couple of dresses for church. I don’t have a lot of clothes, but I love wearing what I have. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, but I have a lot of it. That is one area where I really need to pare down to what I truly love. Great tips and thanks for sharing!

  4. We have a room in our house, that we call “purgatory,” where all the items we’re considering eliminating go, until we are able to make a run to Goodwill. It’s really helped us to pare down, and very few things that are put into that room ever come back into use. The trick, though, seems to be making regular runs to Goodwill. Otherwise, the room just fills up!

  5. I loved this the best: “Over the next two days, pack a suitcase as if you were going on a seven-day trip. The destination: YOUR LIFE.”

    I am thinking this will help de-cluttering every single area in my life!

    Hugs. Always inspiring, Courtney!

    By the way, the link to signing up for the Project 333 in the newsletter does not work :-)and here in this post, it leads to a 404-error page.

  6. After following your blog for a while now (and also other “minimalism” blogs) I have reduced my wardrobe by at least 70 % – something I never thought was possible. And I should add – I feel like I have much nicer clothes now, because I’ve only kept the absolue best pieces of clothing. The best thing, now – I think I’d be able to pack that suitcase and fit pretty much everything I have… except for my 3 winter coats… Still have not been able to get rid of any of them – but we do have a long winter over here. :-)
    Anyway – thanks for inspiring people like me!

    I was motivated to build a wardrobe when I got a job promotion. I went on several shopping trips to “upgrade” my clothes and found that I still did not have anything to wear! I am so glad I found your site! The first 25 items were easy – these we’re my favorite things. I spent the weekend boxing the rest and trying to make compromises. I settled on 33 articles of clothing, not including 3 pairs of shoes and a few accessories, since I really don’t wear much. I am so happy with my new wardrobe! I can see ways to create outfits since I stuck with a color scheme. Thanks for the wonderful advice. I can’t wait to apply this paring down to the rest of my life!
