Here is a list of 10 things you can do today that will save you money, give you back time you never thought you had, and bring home the reality that having less, really is having more.

  • RESIST buying the latest trend, it will not make you happy in the long run
  • Only buy clothing that really suits you and that you are comfortable wearing
  • Only buy clothes that you know you’ll get good wear out of (using a 30 wears benchmark is a good start)
  • Buy clothing that goes with items you already have
  • Buy better quality (it costs way less in the long term)
  • When you can, buy from brands taking active steps towards being more sustainable (most of those who are will offer that information clearly)
  • Fall back in love with craftsmanship – buy one shirt from someone whose passion is making shirts, not five from someone whose is not
  • Don’t wash your clothes so often but give them an airing instead
  • Don’t tumble dry your clothes
  • If your clothes need to be repaired, challenge yourself and give it a try
