Tuesday Tip Jar

As the season changes and the accompanying wardrobe with it, I've stumbled onto a few things in my closet I haven't seen for several months...which serves as a memory jog for today's tip.

At the suggestion of an article or blog post I had seen awhile back, I tried this de-cluttering idea last year. It's a good one but you have to be patient.

Take all the clothes hanging in your closet. Turn the hangers around so that they hook from behind. Then, go about dressing yourself as normal. After wearing an item, return it to the closet with the hanger facing the regular way. Then, make yourself a note somewhere that in 6 months time whatever hangers aren't turned around are clothes you can donate and/or pass along.

If you make it through a whole season without wearing an item, chances are you don't need it, don't want it, or are hanging on to it for the wrong reasons.

This is a good idea.. takes the guess work out of it. I find when I am gong through the closet I kinda do a lot of second guessing and should I shouldn't I type thinking.. this would really help.

Great idea to weed out what you don't need or use!!
