Each year I tell myself I’ll thin down my closet. I usually donate a few pieces, but there are still a good handful of pieces I like, but don’t wear all that often. In reality, I probably wear them less than I think, but to put that idea to the test and help me keep track of what I’m really using, I think I’ll try this quick trick.
I flipped my closet around. Well, not my closet, just the hangers. This allowed me to see what clothes I really using. You can do it, too: after you wear each item, turn the empty hangers around when you put your clothes back in the closet after washing. You’ll soon see what you wear a lot, and what you never touch! It’s a great way to make things obvious, which will help when it comes time to give your clutter a long hard look.
