2015 Minimalist Challenge: Fiance’s Clothes

I’m back with another segment in my 2015 minimalist challenge. Last time, I did the dishes, but there is no video because my footage got deleted before I had a chance to edit. But, here is a fresh video on clothing.

I can’t tell you how relived I am that this task is done. His clothes were so overwhelming that it was invading places where clothing didn’t belong. I begged him to give in and go through it. I think he finally caved when a big pile of clothes on the floor was in his way, and I told him it has to stay because there is absolutely no where else I can put them.

He had 46 t-shirts on top of 20-something nice shirts/polos. And, I knew he had two the same peach colored shirt, but I promise, I almost lost it when I found a third one. A third peach colored shirt. The exact brand, the exact size, and exact everything. Three.

He left for a week to go visit his family, and I took that time to take out all his clothes and categorized them on the floor. The numbers where too high. When he came home, he had a big visual. I’ve learned that he is a visual guy. You have to illustrate and demonstrate your point to him in order for him to see the picture. So, we went through them  one by one. He got rid of a lot, and it feels fantastic. I’m actually quite impressed with the volume he gave up.

One thing we didn’t do was go through his summer box. Which we still need to do. But, for right now it’s fine. Everything fits into his closet. And, that’s all I ever wanted.
