Do you believe that we can learn much about a person’s personality by looking in their clothes closet ? I always advise young couples considering marriage to have a peek in their prospective spouse’s closet. Much can be learned here regarding someone’s tidyiness level, and the value they put on clothing. You may be surprised at how many spousal disagreements arise when couples have differing standards of neatness and tidyness .
My closet contains few items. I consider clothing as an investment and I buy relatively few clothes.
I make sure however, that the clothes are of excellent quality, that they fit well, and that they are made of natural fabrics. This is also an excellent reminder not to gain extra weight. I use wooden hangers so that the clothes retain their shape better. My favourite navy blue blazer is now 18 years old !
If you have a closet, with several changes of clothing in it, please consider yourself very fortunate and blessed. Many people in the world have no closets, and rarely wear any new items of clothing. Let us remember always to thank God for the clothes He provides for us, and let us also pray for the millions of people who work in the production of clothing. Many of them work under very difficult conditions. Let us never take clothing, nor clothes closets for granted.
