The 80/20 Check-In (Month 7)

May 17, 2015

I’m at month 7 of The 80/20 Challenge and it’s time for my monthly check-in.  Here’s how the numbers look for my entire wardrobe since the last check-in at month 5:

  • Shoes: 19 pairs (no change since last check-in)
  • Business and Special Occasion Capsule: 14 items
  • Beach/Swim Capsule: 8 items (no change since last check-in)
  • Lounge/Sleep Capsule: 12 items (no change since last check-in)
  • Spring/Summer Wardrobe: 48 items
  • Fall/Winter Wardrobe: 69 items 

Crunching the numbers

My current wardrobe total is 170 items.  To use 80% of this wardrobe only 34 item should sit unworn.  However, this is across seasons.

Taking a closer look at the fall/winter season, I have 69 fall/winter wardrobe items and 4 pairs of boots for a total of 73 items.  This means that only 15 items can sit unworn for the entire season.

Taking a closer look at the current season, which is spring/summer in my area, I have 48 items and 10 pairs of footwear for a total of 58 items.  This means that only 12 items can sit unworn for the entire season.

However, to make this slightly more complicated, I have 22 items (Business and Special Occasion Capsule and Beach/Swim Capsule items) that sit unworn for most of the year.  Out of 170 items, these 22 items make up 12.9% already!  That leaves me with only 12 items that should sit unworn between both my fall/winter AND spring/summer wardrobes or 6 items each.

With the Fall/Winter season over, it’s time to see what the 6 unworn items were from this wardrobe.  I’ll cover that in my next post along with why these items went unworn yet I am still keeping them.

Do you know how many items are in your wardrobe?
