I use the fall as my reminder of updating two areas in my wardrobe, jeans and lounge/sleep capsule. I find that jeans and lounge wear items generally go on sale during the “Back to School Sales” at this time of year. This makes it the perfect time to routinely update these items at the same time every year. I previously focused on my jeans, so today, it’s onto the lounge/sleep wear capsule. Above is the updated capsule. The total capsule number is the same as in the past. I have found that a rotation of three is plenty for me. I’ve been debating about going down to two outfits, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. Perhaps next year, I will do so.
I only purchased four items this year, two sweatshirts and two sweatpants. The shorts and t-shirts were still in good condition, so I’m keeping those items for another year.
I purged four items, a one-in and one-out of items, keeping this capsule the same size.
I started updating this capsule once a year, a few years ago, and find that this timing works rather well. I also like the fact that this capsule is dual purpose, I lounge and sleep in the same clothes. This eliminates the need to own separate sleep wear and keeps this capsule number low.
How often (if ever) do you focus on updating your lounge/sleep capsule?
