In preparation for next years main Blog Challenge I have signed up for this.
Project 333 is the brainchild of Courtney Carver, you can read all about it HERE on her brilliant Blog. It seems very similar to something Gok Wan did a year or so ago on TV when he went through ladies wardrobes virtually jettisoning all their clothes and then built them a basic wardrobe of about 30 items.
The basics for Project 333 are very simple.
*** *** ***
■When: Every three months (It’s never too late to start so join in anytime!)
■What: 33 items including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes.
■What not: these items are not counted as part of the 33 items – wedding ring or another sentimental piece of jewelry that you never take off, underwear, sleep wear, in-home lounge wear, and workout clothing (you can only wear your workout clothing to workout)
■How: Choose your 33 items, box up the remainder of your fashion statement, seal it with tape and put it out of site.
■What else: consider that you are creating a wardrobe that you can live, work and play in for three months. Remember that this is not a project in suffering. If your clothes don’t fit or are in poor condition, replace them.

The first step is to assess ALL your clothes and go through them picking out the ones you love, the ones that are 'maybes' and the ones that you simply know can go straight away.
It sounds very do-able, and of course I'll let you know. I honestly didn't think I had as much as I do have, how did all this stuff creep back into my life, I only sorted out at the start of last year and already it would seem I am almost back to square one.
At the moment ALL my clothes , shoes and accessories are out on my bed, so I have to keep this brief and get back to sorting otherwise we'll have nowhere to sleep tonight!!
