Six Items or less

Could you imagine only having six items of clothing in your wardrobe?  Think about it.

I keep a tall kitchen garbage can in the attic to hold all the clothes I decide I no longer want to wear.  Every three months a local charity calls and picks up my cast-offs.  I can easily fill three 30 gallon trash bags every three months.  And I don't even shop all that much!!!

There is a movement to wear only six items of clothing during one month.  The point, I guess, is to prove that Westerners own too many clothes - and waste too much of the world's resources on fashion.

For more info, check out the movement's blog.
