So in case you haven't read yet, my new year's resolution is to be more organized at home. So I thought I would share with you a little trick I found online for getting rid of unwanted clothes. It is easy enough for anyone to do, you hang all your clothes up with the hangers reversed. Anytime you wear something, wash it, it goes back with the hanger normal. After a few months (3 to 6 months), whatever clothes that are still on a backwards hanger - DONATE THEM!! I have 3 months calendared but go for 6 months if you live somewhere cold and obviously aren't going to be wearing any of your summer stuff anytime soon.
No cheating though, if you put something on from a backwards hanger and decide not to wear it, hang it back up backwards because you didn't wear it!
I'll update you with my results in about three months. I'm not expecting a tremendous amount of stuff to donate because I am pretty good about donating my unwanted clothes. Also, right before I reversed all my hangers I did another sweep. However, there are those items that I THINK I want but then never really end up wearing them. You know the ones, you put it on then it comes right off and ends up on the floor. So chances are those will probably be the ones that finally get the boot!
What's your trick? Have you tried this?
