Stepping into a Capsule Wardrobe (BONUS)

I’ve had some people request to see my list of what I kept in my closet. I made a list to adhere to on Evernote (a fantastic app that everyone should have on their phones, tablets, and computers if you don’t already). I’ll just copy and paste that list here. I didn’t keep track of undies, bras, socks, or pjs. Besides those things, I made sure to keep track of EVERYTHING in my closet.

I know what you’re going to say: HEY! That’s not 31 items per weather change total! Well I did mention that I was going to be using the 31 rule as a guide and in fact, my examples that I used were 15 items for warm weather and 16 for winter. The important part is that I have way less than I started with, yet kept the wardrobe mine. Please feel free to do the same!

Let us know what your final count is!
