Consider a Capsule Wardrobe


January 23, 2015: Consider a Capsule Wardrobe

Why a ‘capsule’ can condense your wardrobe AND your budget!

Have you ever heard of a capsule wardrobe? I hadn’t either until last fall, but once I did, I was hooked!

It’s where you set aside a pre-determined amount of clothing items (anywhere between 10-40) and that’s ALL you wear for the season. That number includes shoes, jewelry & accessories too.

The idea behind it is that not only do you vow not to shop or spend money on clothes during this season, but most participants typically discover they can get by with much less than they’d ever imagined.

If you’re hesitant, consider doing it for just a month; and don’t forget to get your kids involved too!


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
