I’ve just done a quick count of the clothes that I’m carrying with me. I don’t know why I hadn’t done it before, but hadn’t. I suppose I packed in a hurry, concentrating more on getting stuff into storage than what I was taking with me.
So in my suitcase (plus what i’m wearing right now) I have:
11 pairs of underpants
14 pairs of socks and one odd one
7 shirts (2 of which are short-sleeved)
2 pairs of jeans
a pair of shorts
an anorak-type jacket
1 pair beach shoes
1 pair ordinary shoes
I generally only wear one shirt or t-shirt in a day, I can’t think of a time when I’ve had to change, apart from when I’ve been doing a lot of physical work during the day. I change underpants and socks every day. This means that I need to do a wash at least every 10 days and therefore at any time I have 10 shirts & t-shirts more than I need and 3 “spare” pairs of socks.
As it’s getting cold, I’m going to have to get my winter coat, cap and scarf out of storage. I shall probably put a few shirts and t-shirts away and leave the jacket and beach shoes behind too.
