Ever look in your closet and wonder when you last wore a certain shirt or if you ever wore it? I ran across a great tip to help you out!
1- Turn all your hangers around backwards.
2- When you wear an item, hang it up with the hanger facing the normal way.
3- After a season or year, get rid of all the clothes that are on the hangers which are still hangin' backwards!
4- If you can't bear to get rid of them yet, put them in a box and write the date in Permanent Marker on top. The next time you want to go shopping, go through the box and see if you want to wear anything you already spent your money on.
5- After one year from the date on the box, if you haven't missed anything you put in the box, DON'T OPEN THE BOX, just send the box to Goodwill!
It really works and it makes me more aware of the clothes that are still hanging up 'backwards'.
Now hurry up and go turn all the hangers around. If you start using this tip on Aprils fool's day, you might have to explain to your kids or spouse that it's not a joke-really!
Have fun Simplifying!
