Flipping my closet
I did some reorganizing in my closet today. In an effort to start wearing more of my clothes, I flipped all of my clothes hangers. This served two purposes. First, it forced me to look at each piece of clothing I as I took it out and flipped it around. I was hit with several outfit inspirations with pieces I haven't looked at in awhile. Secondly, this will be an easy visual reminder of what I am not wearing. After I wear a piece, I will return it to my closet with the hanger the right side out.
I hope this will have two effects. One, I will wear all my clothes. Two, I will buy less. I'm not going to ban shopping altogether because I know with my personality, it would just not work. And there are holes in my closet that I like to full. For instance, I'd like to have more prints, scarfs, and colored shoes. I'm going to start shopping more selectively.
