Clothes, indeed, are a common form of clutter. This is far from being my first time talking about them. Obviously, we need clothes, but the reality is your wardrobe follows an 80-20 rule: 80% of the time, you're wearing the same clothes that make up only about 20% of your wardrobe. Those of you readers who may be embarrassingly shitty at math can pause here to read that link and think.
This time though, I just want to talk about one specific item: the "bad shirt". This is the shirt you wear when you absolutely don't care what happens to it. It's ideal for painting fences, doing outdoor work, or in my case, getting my hair dyed. These are certainly good to have. Like many, I've admittedly been in the habit of "Well I don't want this t-shirt and would never really want to wear it. But I did get it for free. So I'll just keep it around as a 'bad' shirt."
The problem however is when you try to keep 5 to 10 of these things in the house, when really, 1 or 2 is usually more than most individuals will need.
Do yourself a favor. Go into your bureau and closets, and find the "bad" shirts. Do they have holes or permanent stains and you use them for dirty work? Or maybe you keep them clean, but specifically just to sleep in? Well I guess you can gather those too. Now see if you can afford to get rid of some of these. Chances are you can. Start making your own bag for Goodwill. That's what I did. But more on that later.
Oh yeah, and the self-indulgent "30 Day Song Challenge" that I started earlier. We're up to "A song that reminds of you of somewhere", followed by "A song that reminds you of a certain event".
This song reminds me of a special secluded place down by some abandoned railroad tracks, where my friends and I would hang out back when I was a teenager. That's because we usually had this cassette tape (Led Zeppelin III) playing on the boombox. We nicknamed the place "The Void". Maybe I'll get around to writing more about it.
As for "a song that reminds you of a certain event", here's one that reminds me of my 30th birthday in Las Vegas. It was blasting in front of the Bellagio during their water show. That whole birthday trip will easily go down as one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life.
