Could you fit your entire wardrobe for the current season in this armoire?
I could fit things in terms of physical volume, but I’d struggle with how to hang my dresses – how DO women who only have armoires hang long garments?
A couple of years ago I wrote a lengthy post with an equation to help calculate an actual number of garments that would be in your ideal wardrobe – you had to answer a few questions, and then do a calculation (or you can buy the Excel document I built that does the math for you!). It’s a question that doesn’t grow old… Unless you have a terribly limited wardrobe, it’s something that merits repeated analysis, so that we don’t wander into old patterns of over-consumption. Wasting money is almost as bad as wasting natural resources, right?
This is the link to buy the worksheet that helps you calculate your idea wardrobe number. It’s cool because you can keep changing the various parameters about how often you change clothes, or how many garments are in your typical outfit, and the results change automatically…
If you’re pretty happy with the size of your wardrobe but would like a worksheet to help you figure out your “cost per wear” and the age of your garments, I’ve got a worksheet for that too!
Yes, I’m in Florida right now with my hands full of family activities, so my response to comments can be limited by my Internet access. But if you have ideas for other worksheets that would be useful to you, I’d be happy to try to create them – I love planning, and structures, and organization…
