A couple of months ago, I blogged here about flipping my closet. I flipped all my hangers backwards and changed them only after I had worn that article of clothing. I did this in an effort to wear more of my clothes. Every morning I try to pick an outfit from my backwards hangers. It is also a good visual of what I don't wear (and maybe need to gt rid of). Here are my results so far:
There are still lots of backwards hangers but I'm making progress. This experiment, along with posting a lot of my outfits, has really helped me try to find different combinations of clothing to wear. In the past, I have worn my favorite pieces again and again. There is definitely more variety in my clothing choices.
As far as using this method to clean out my closet, I haven't gone that far yet. I have a hard time letting go of clothing. A closet clean is on the way though. This closet, my second closet, the hooks on the back of our bedroom and guest room door are all over-flowing. It's time to make room!
