One of the main reasons to start this clothing ban is to simplify my life. I have embraced minimalism fully and I’ve radically decluttered and sold a lot of my stuff.
I’ve realized that I don’t need to buy new things to be happy, which is a great feeling of freedom.
When you’re starting something like a clothing ban, you are forced to break your old habits and create new ones.
When you’re committing to something like a clothing ban or a no-buy challenge, you become ‘immune’ to advertising.
If you’re eliminating the non-essential shopping, you free up a LOT of time for things that give you joy.
What I currently have in my closet is everything I need. Limiting myself in not buying new things, makes me grateful for every item of clothing I do have in my closet.
