Clothing

I've learned through minimalism that clothing really doesn't matter all that much. After trying out wearing the same thing every day for 2 weeks it became apparent that it doesn't matter to my friends or my colleagues what I wear. No one even noticed unless I pointed it out.

Since then, I've donated, recycled, or thrown out pretty much my entire wardrobe in an effort to replace everything with things I can wear every day without thinking about it. I've ended up with a far smaller wardrobe, being more relaxed in the mornings, and feeling less stressed about laundry.

I now wear the same thing every day effectively reducing the number of decisions that I'm forced to make while still feeling comfortable and retaining my "metal head" style.
