A few of your favorite things, in the ragbag [Jan. 23rd, 2014|08:27 am]
Marissa Lingen

Poll #1953348 managing favorites

For something that is likely to eventually wear out (such as socks, T-shirts, etc.), and is your favorite, do you:

Wear it more often! It's your favorite after all.
Save it for special occasions! It's your favorite, after all.
Institute a strict FIFO system so that everything gets equal wear.
Some other kind of rotation you will explain in comments.
Do not have favorite T-shirts/sweaters/etc. so this does not come up.
Any system you have is so completely haphazard and subconscious that you would be hard-pressed to describe it here.
Other, specified in comments.

(I have just this week completely worn out not one but two favorite garments--to the point where there is no point to donating them to any charity, as they would do no one more good than they have already done me--so I am thinking about these things at the moment.)

If they were so worn out they couldn't even serve as pjs, they'd have to go in the ragbag, I'm afraid.

Right, but: on the way there. Do you rotate them in a particular order, save the best ones for special, wear the best ones more often, wear whatever comes out on top....?

Sorry to make you pull the requested response out of me! I think I tend to wear my favorite whatever more often; there's a reason it's my favorite, and even knowing that will make it wear out more often doesn't change it being the favorite.

That is what I do too! I just sometimes wish I didn't when they do wear out.
