Most of us are not lucky enough to have a closet like Kim Kardasian, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t get organized. It may not be spring, but any time is the right time to get organized.
The One Year Rule
Start your project by reviewing each piece in your closet. If you haven’t worn it in a year – or if it doesn’t fit and you are waiting to lose weight – donate the item to charity. When you lose weight, you can treat yourself to something new, in the meantime, some one else can benefit from your clothes.
Discardia Closet Trick
Here is a clever trick to uncover those items you THINK you need but really don’t wear very often. This comes to us from Apartment Therapy.
Turn around all the hangers in your closet so the hooks are pointing towards you (wrong way round).
When you wear something, put it back with the hook the normal way.
In six months, any hanger still facing the wrong way is holding an item you haven’t worn, ready for the donation bag.
