I am moving out of my room in Mönchengladbach because I will start an internship in Hamburg in March. I'm really looking forward to that but I hope that I won't have to move house for some months. Yesterday we started to gather my things and in the end we had about 7 garbage bags full of clothes. I knew that I had quite many things but I never thought that it would be so many. It really got me thinking about what I really wear from all that I own and something that I learned in school came to my mind. Do you know the Pareto principle ? It is a sort of relation that can be applied to many different things. In my case it could be said like this 80 % of the clothes that I wear frequently only make up 20 % of my garments.
Now I'm thinking that maybe I could find out which garments are the 20 %. Of course a pair of dark denim jeans, some blouses ( white and printed), sweaters, dresses. What would you say are your 20 % ?
And how do you manage your wardrobe ? Do you cull pieces that you haven't worn for a couple of months or do you hoard them like I used to do ?
