The BIG surprise is how little I have missed shopping. BC (before-covid) I would have categorised this particular pastime as one of life’s pleasures.
It’s not the same.
I have changed.
I had done a ‘Marie Kondo’ pre lockdown. Not just clothing but crockery, my beloved books (how I adore my books), kitchenware, old toiletries and those free cosmetic samples that never get used.
It’s always an act of liberation.
In Fashion Feng Shui the belief is that clutter equals stagnation. Too much stuff and you get stuck. You can’t move. Losing weight, finding a new job, earning more money, or creating something joyful, it’s hard when there’s no space available to change or embrace the new. Spare hangers in my closet, and multiple spaces on my shelves, ensure I’m always ready for opportunities that might come my way.
I’ve recognised that I already own the perfect wardrobe. So much so, I am on a mission to NOT purchase anything new unless I have a genuine need for it. ‘Less is more’ has become my new mantra and aligns wonderfully with my style of dressing.
What else have I discovered?
What about you? What major discoveries have you found during lockdown?
