Simple Closet Organizing Idea

I'm always recommending that my closet organizing clients try the backward hanger technique to determine what clothes they're actually wearing. The rule is to hang all the hangers backwards on the rod and, after wearing an article of clothing, hang that article back on the rod with the hanger facing the right way.

At the end of six to eight months, the clothing still hanging backwards on the rod are the clothes not being worn. This makes it easier to evaluate what to keep and what to donate from this select group of clothing.

So, I've decided to try this method myself for the next six months and see how I do. I'll let you know....
