Project 333: New Season

It’s that time of year again. And while I’m actually excited for it – and just itching to get to my husband’s side of the closet, which I won’t – I’m also not looking forward to the extra time involved. The planning bit seems to take the longest.

Using again the guidelines for Project 333, but tailored to my kids, here’s the list for them for the Fall/Winter:

  1. Winter Coat
  2. Fall Coat
  3. Winter Hat & Gloves*
  4. Snow Pants
  5. Snow Boots*
  6. Shoes – casual
  7. Shoes – dress*
  8. Jeans/Bibs
  9. Jeans/Bibs
  10. Leggings-pants (you know what I mean)
  11. Leggings-pants
  12. Skirt
  13. Skirt
  14. Socks (7 pairs each)
  15. Dress – Nice
  16. Dress – Casual
  17. Dress – Casual
  18. Long-sleeved shirt – “design”
  19. Long-sleeved shirt – “design”
  20. Long-sleeved shirt – “design”
  21. Long-sleeved shirt for layering*
  22. Long-sleeved shirt for layering*
  23. T-shirt
  24. T-shirt
  25. T-shirt
  26. Sweater
  27. Sweatshirt
  28. Leg warmers/Tights (Will be culling some of these. Just don’t wear the baby legs as much as we did).
  29. Hair bows (Will be culling some of these as well)
I’m looking at this list and thinking that this is still way too much stuff. AND rule-wise, I still have some spots left to fill.  The * denotes items that I know I need to pick up for either 1 or both girls.  I’m having a really hard time finding PLAIN long-sleeved shirts to use for layering. Everything has a design of some kind.
And My List:
  1. Winter Coat
  2. Winter Hat & Gloves
  3. Fall Coat
  4. Snow Boots*
  5. Shoes – Casual
  6. Shoes – Work
  7. Shoes – Dress
  8. Boots – Dress*
  9. Socks/Pantyhose/Tights* (I know. I lumped these together. Maybe it’s something to do with the fact that I have a hard enough time finding the MATE to the single sock that comes out of the laundry…)
  10. Jeans
  11. Jeans
  12. Dress Pants*
  13. Dress – Casual
  14. Dress – Work
  15. Dress – Nice
  16. Skirt – Casual*

  22. Shirt – Work
  23. Shirt – Casual
  24. Shirt – Casual
  25. Blazer/Jacket – Work
  26. Blazer/Jacket – Casual
  27. Watch (I know! Most people use their phone. But I like my watch. Needs a new band & battery*)
  28. Necklace
  29. Necklace
  30. Necklace
  31. Necklace
  32. Bracelet
  33. Fashion-y Scarf
Wow! That took longer to put together than I had anticipated. I know what I WANT to have now, so need to dive into the closet and make the choices. Clothes-wise it shouldn’t be too bad, because I’ve never been one to hang on to stuff. But to make sure that my shoes and outerwear are  in check took some thought. There are a couple of pieces (*) that I realize I need to pick up, too, for ME.
