I find shopping, especially clothes shopping, rather tiresome. Despite my self-imposed boundary in this worldly activity, I still find myself possessing too many clothing items! My non-minimalist wardrobe is the result of free second-hand clothing pieces and necessary pieces I bought at a bargain.
To justify keeping all these items which are hanging or folded in my wardrobe, I try to wear everything at least once a year. Pieces that I have not worn for five years or more go to the mother-in-law’s rommelmarkt pile. Some of these items I collect in a luggage bag intended for the local charity store or to be taken along with me the next time I go back to Malaysia.
So once a year, I will be wearing some weird and colourful blouses, t-shirts that are either too big or too small, and goofy pieces I dug up from the back of my wardrobe.
