the thing about reducing the clothing.....
in my case, i am in a bathing suit from early morning to my 5 pm shower and dress for dinner.
then those clothes that I put on are on for maybe 3 hrs tops.
the top and shorts/skirt/skort can and will be worn again.
(caveat...unless i go into a smoky casino and the clothes smell like an ash tray. often, draping them over a chair on the patio/balcony in the sun and breeze eliminates the smike stench and infrequently so cigarette smelly that they do have to go into the pile of dirty clothes)
i cannot survive with less than 3 bathing suits and 3 cover ups.
