Each season we wear different types of cloting. For these different seasons I mix and match 7 peices of each type of clothing. Example: I have seven long sleeved shirts, 7 short sleeved shirts, 7 pairs of jeans, 7 pair of slacks, 7 pairs of shorts, 7 special occassion outfits, 7 pairs of socks, and
7 of everything else. This minimzes spending, evens out shopping trips thru the year and is great for kids to learn this as well. Same with toys only allow so many toys, or storage bowls, shoes, coats, well try limiting everything including furniture and knick knacks.
