Do you want another 8.5 hours left to yourself each month?

Do you say “I wish some days were 25 hours a day, not 24”? There is a lot to do, but little time in return. Well, what if I say that I cannot extend one more hour each day, but I have a suggestion that will give you 8.5 hours additional time per month? Before starting the suggestion, ask yourself: What would you like to use this additional time for? For example, you can meditate for at least 10 minutes each day or read at least 10 minutes a book. In particular, I gave these two examples because we think these two will be very good for us, but we cannot add them to our daily activities. Or, if you always buy something from outside for breakfast out of time, maybe you can prepare breakfast for yourself and take it with you at this additional time.

If you’ve decided, then let’s move on to the suggestion. I said 8.5 hours a month because, according to a study conducted by Mark & ​​Spencer, we spend 17 minutes a day thinking about what to wear. Maybe our wardrobes or dressers are full of clothes, but when we open the door or drawer, we have only one thought: I have nothing to wear.

This thought is often due to our unconscious shopping. Yes, we definitely like beautiful pieces. But mostly, “Are these compatible with other things in the house or, more importantly, with my life?” We skip asking. Anuschka Rees, author of the book Curated Closet, says that if our responsibilities in life do not match our wardrobe, we cannot be efficient. What does he mean? Let’s say you go to work and you need to dress relatively formally, at least there is no place in this office for t-shirts with slogan or ripped trousers, when you say go to traffic or something, you have 50 hours a week going to work, maybe you go to sports 3 times a week, again go and come to him for 6 hours. Let’s say, if you are a parent in this way, think of the time you spend with your child, the activities that I missed, but which definitely take place every week in your life. Then see if the items in your wardrobe match this distribution.

After doing this comparison, decide whether the outfits of your main roles cover each other or are different. What a banker wears as a parent may be different, but an advertiser may always dress in the same style … Remove your basic roles (shouldn’t exceed 2-3) and prepare capsule wardrobes according to these roles. Capsule wardrobe was first used by Susie Faux in the 1970s. This term, which is used for a set of clothes that are compatible with each other in pattern and color, for women who want to dress well but who do not have a budget, is generally used today for a selection of clothes consisting of 30-40 pieces of clothes that are compatible with each other. The capsule wardrobe can be chosen from your existing large wardrobe, or someone who finds this very practical may just want to use the capsule wardrobe and dispose of the rest of their clothes. One of the most important things we should pay attention to here is to make sure that all the pieces in this selection fit you perfectly and that you are comfortable inside. In addition, of course, you feel good in these clothes each time you wear them. These two are things that we sometimes compromise, but then we regret this compromise during the day. When the thing we wear bothers us, both the people in front of us also notice this and this discomfort prevents us from performing well in the works we are interested in in our daily life.

Generally, when it comes to capsule wardrobe, “So what should be in it?” comes with the question. “What kind of 30-40 pieces should I create so that I can create the best, most practical wardrobe or what are the must-haves?” as. However, we are all different from each other, so when we consider the life, work, physique and loved ones of each of us, the essentials will change. You can proceed using the following method:

1. First, create a color palette.

2. Identify the basic parts. (Outfits that can be easily matched with multiple pieces)

3. Add texture, pattern, and a few star pieces to spice up this selection a bit. The things we call star pieces are clothes that are ambitious alone and cannot be combined with too much everything.

4. Include shoes, bags, and accessories to match these outfits.

5. Make combinations. Even take pictures of your combinations.

Afterwards, if you need to leave the house quickly in the morning, make the preparations for the next day in the evening. Arrange all of your wearers, including your shoes and accessories. Especially, this preparation, which is made from the evening in order not to deal with problems such as slipped socks and a broken shirt in the morning, really saves a lot of time for those who have to leave in a hurry in the morning.

When you have prepared your capsule wardrobes, if you want to share with me, do not forget to share me by labeling. In this period where time is so precious, let’s meet next week with new suggestions that make your life easier.
