Week Notes Vol 143

January 30, 2022

I’ve been thinking that perhaps 2022 is a year of trying another experiment for me. After spending 6 weeks with a limited set of clothes - and let’s be honest, I did not even wear all of them - that perhaps one of the goals of 2022 would be to reduce mindless consumption. So here’s what I think I’m going to try to do - only add clothing items that either are made by me, gifted to me or are purchased from REI. Why REI? Because I go through so many outdoor clothes I almost live in them plus I get a pretty sweet deal as an employee. I like this idea on two fronts. Mainly I hate the mindless consumption and fast fashion but it’s straight in your face all the time. Setting myself an imaginary line helps. Secondly I’m not fully ready to commit to a capsule wardrobe kind of idea and this still allows me the freedom to add something should I need to.

Crazy idea? Perhaps. We’ll see how it works out.
