In her quest to live more minimally, Verena Erin from My Green Closet, decided to chuck some stuff and reform her shopping habits.
In this video, she shares the five category of things she no longer buys. Two that I can relate to are impulse buys and special event clothes.
For weddings and other special events, I might still pick up something new but I now put more thought into whether and how I will wear them again:
- Separates are versatile.
- I might buy a cute maxi dress or skirt because they can be dressed up or down and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them after.
- Shopping friends’ closet is a hit or miss, but if I can find something to borrow, that’s a “new-to-me” outfit.
Turns out, in going green, Erin is helping us save some green. Noted!
