How I Build My Children’s Capsule Wardrobe Using Project 333

In a previous blog post titled “Why I Invested In A Style Coach” I talked about Project 333. Click the link to read more about it. I use this system for my kids wardrobe. I didn’t use Project 333 for my daughter that’s 12, I just focused on a capsule wardrobe for her because she’s growing and need more items but I definitely used it for my children’s wardrobe that are ages 7, 5 and 3.

I only give my children 33 items to wear in their wardrobe. I change their clothes seasonal but the 33 items rules still stands.

I was getting tired of washing so many clothes and wanted to do something different that would save me more time and help me to live with less. When I discovered the 33 items rule, I fell in love with it. I really want to use this rule for myself, I am slowly working on getting my wardrobe down to 33 items. I think my issue is I love design, so when I see a pretty piece that I love, I want to incorporate it into my wardrobe. I am not the girl that live in the department stores and I don’t have to buy the latest fashion items but when I see something that I love, I want to buy it. I don’t go over board with the buying either.

So how do I figure out what to include in my children’s 33 items wardrobe? I divide the number of items (33) by the number of categories (10).

My 3, 5 and 7 years old wardrobe consist of 10 categories. I divide 33 ÷ 10 = 3.3. I give each category 3 items making it 30 items, and the 3 items that are left over, I assign to categories that needs more items. Look below to see how I assign the items. The fun part comes in when I get to take from the catergories that do not need three items, and assign it to others catergories that need more, like under garments.

Now in Project 333 the rules are a little different from mines, because I want to cut down on laundry I only incorporate 33 items. In project 333 the creator allow you items like wedding ring or another sentimental piece of jewelry that you never take off, underwear, sleep wear, in-home lounge wear, and workout clothing (you can only wear your workout clothing to workout) you can have these items liberally.

Keep in mind that I assigned each category 3 items and the 3 that were left over, I assigned to under garments. I then went back and removed some items that did not need three items and assigned them to categories that needed more, and this is results down below.

Categories for Spring/Summer

  • Shoes 3. One pair of tennis shoes, sandals, dress shoes
  • Bottoms Girls 5. 3 pants and 2 shorts. Bottoms Son 7. 3 pants, 4 shorts
  • Dresses girls 3. Suit, Son 1
  • Under garments 7
  • Sweater 1
  • Jackets 1
  • Tops girls 5. 2 long sleeves that roll up 3/4 quarter length and 3 short sleeve. Tops Son 7. 3 long sleeves and 4 short sleeve
  • Skirts 2
  • Tights/socks Girls 4. 1 pair of tights, 3 socks. Son 5 pair of socks
  • Pajamas 2

This is what I ended up with after moving items into different categories.

Exception to the rule, If we have a special event to go to that requires me to buy clothes for that event, I will buy it. Each child has a swim suit.

We wash laundry 6 days a week in my home so my children will always have a supply of clean clothes. My 12, 7, and 5 years old daughters are learning to wash their own clothes. I will talk about my laundry system in a different blog post.

This is my process for deciding which items make it in my children’s 33 items wardrobe. I would love to hear from you, comment and subscribe to Breakthrough Blog 4 Women. Follow me on my social media links down below. Click here to follow me on Instagram.
