I know this is a random Oscar shot, but he’s just too cute not to include it!
These are some more pictures of our trip to Iowa a couple of weeks ago. My little sis just bought a unicycle and she makes it look so easy, but it’s not! Ha! I was able to sit on the unicycle and that was about it. David couldn’t do it either. So that means my sis has some mad unicycle talents.
I had a random thought the other day. But first let me back up. In college I worked as a therapist for autistic children. One of the tools that we used to keep the kids engaged was to keep groups of their toys in bins. Every month we would pull out a new bin and let them play with the contents. Even though they were toys that they had played with before, they still seemed fresh and exciting each new month. See where I’m going with this? I think Capsule Wardrobes have been so successful for me is that I’m a lot like those kids. It’s hard to stay engaged with clothing that I see day in and day out. Packing away each season’s clothing gives you a fresh perspective when you pull it out again and it’s so much easier to stay engaged with what you already own. Because of this, when you do add new items to the capsule, you aren’t buying things simply because you are bored with what you own. Makes sense right?
What do you think? Do you find yourself more satisfied with what you own when you keep it out of sight for a time?
Until next time,
