Recently I attended a women's retreat that was put on by our church. They have different seminars that you can attend. I guess it's no surprise that I attended the one on organizing! I cannot get enough of the subject of organizing and decluttering and it's always fun to see another perspective.
A lot of the information was about streamlining processes in your life like mail sorting and laundry. I'm always looking to get a tidbit that will make my life efficient and also pass along to others. So I am here to pass along a little gem that she shared with us. You've probably heard of it, but maybe have never tried it.
It's just a simple little trick to determine what clothes you really do wear. As you can see from the title, just turn your hangers around. I did this last week and I'm already getting confirmation of what I thought I needed to let go. I'm using this process to further edit my summer clothes. I feel like I've got a lot of shirts but still I don't like a lot of the ones I have. How typical am I, I know! I'll be contending with these backwards hangers throughout the summer, but definitely at the end of the summer
heads shirts will roll!
I'm actually surprised that something so simple can be so effective in eliminating arguments with yourself about what you actually wear. Maybe you are like me and when you change out your seasonal clothes, you can talk yourself into keeping items a little bit longer.
Has anyone tried this? I'll be honest it took me a little while to do this. I was a tiny bit smug and didn't want to admit to needing this process. Au contraire though, because The Closet Therapist needs a dose of reality too! Hopefully by the end of this process, we'll have more empty hangers and less clutter.
