Closet Organization & Figuring Out Which Clothes You Really Don’t Wear
I think this has happened to a lot of us at one time or another. We look into our closet and it is stuffed with clothing. Sure a lot of the stuff is old but they all have their uses right? You’re totally going to wear that shirt again some time soon even though you can’t remember when the last time you wore it was, right? The truth is you probably won’t…unless you’re a certain lady named Jasmine.
Here’s the trick I used to great effect as of late to cull my closet’s herd and make room: Go through your closet and turn all your hangers around do the hook’s neck in the back of your closet rod. Whenever you wear a shirt or whatever article of clothing is hanging put it back in the closet (after it is washed, I hope!) so the hanger is facing the opposite direction which indicates it has been worn since you started your culling of the clothing herd.
After about a year – or whatever time period you have decided on – take a look at your closet and see which clothes’ hangers are still not in the “Worn” position. Those that aren’t can be then donated or thrown away.
Side Note: Some people commented on the shirt I wore and it’s ending in the video I made for the Mobilicity CEO Blogger Contest – this was a shirt that, when I was packing, I noticed it hadn’t been worn in quite a while so that is why it received the fate it did. It was either about to be donated to a secondhand clothing charity or thrown out (I can’t remember what it’s fate was to be before it got cast in my video).
