When you go to college especially when you first start off you feel like you need everything
You want to be the most prepared and you also do not want to spend your own money for things that your parents could of bought you
However, as you go into your sophomore and junior year of college you will realize that all the things you brought you did not need
For example, you bring 20 shirts but wear the same three shirts everyday because why not? so why do you need the other 17…..and don’t feel attack because this is exactly what I do but then I learned that minimizing would help we organize my things better and be able to pack less stuff
My suggestion to you is out of those 20 shirts for example pick ten that you really like and these should include long sleeve, short sleeve, summer and winter shirts and going out shirts. Pick pants that you would wear in the next month.
If you are like me and you do not go home often packing your winter clothes is essential! My mindset whenever I pack for college is would I wear this in the next month and if the answer is yes I take it and if its no I throw it out or I donate it.
I also believe that if you buy an item of clothing then one in your closet has to go and this helps you minimize and eliminate any clothing that you will not wear. One in One out
You can have this same mindset with shoes and other articles of clothing that you might not wear or needs to be changed.
Minimizing can help get rid of the junk but can also help you see what you need for school. Overall it’ll help you know your comfy clothes from your going out clothes. So if you contemplating on minimizing DO IT!
