Want To Reduce The Amount Of Clothes In Your Closet? A Guide For Paring Down

The cover of the book, “Project 333: The Minimalist Fashion Challenge That Proves Less Really Is So Much More.”

That daily encounter with the clothes closet, trying to figure out what to wear to work, isn’t that much of a problem these days. But the stay-at-home order has given us time to actually look inside that closet. And that can be a disturbing experience, revealing clothes we never wear, clothes that don’t fit and clothes that pose the question “what was I thinking?”

If being homebound is motivating you to tackle that closet problem, there’s a new book that might help. It’s called “Project 333: The Minimalist Fashion Challenge That Proves Less Really Is So Much More.”

Its author, Courtney Carver, joined Midday Edition in early March when she was headed to San Diego on a book tour. But it was canceled. Now, as with everyone else, Carver is adjusting to a new normal that includes a virtual book tour on Thursday.
