Closet Clean Up - Update on the Backwards Hangers

Well, it's been six months since I first posted this great tip about keeping track of the clothes you wear versus those you never wear by hanging your hangers backwards on the rod and only turning them around after you've worn the item of clothing.

Here is the latest update on how I'm doing.

I have gone through my closet, focusing on those items which are still hung backwards. I have given away 2/3 of these items for various reasons - they don't fit or fit right, they don't look good on me or I know I will never wear them.

I'm happy with the progress I've made on the closet and will continue this process through the summer.

This makes so much sense, Wendy! I have a closet full of things that I simply do not wear. I struggle with giving them away because I always feel like I don't have that many options for clothes I like, but keeping all these items that I will not wear is actually kind of ridiculous. I will try your method with the hangers. Thank you for the tip!
I hope you're enjoying your spring break! I came home with a stomach virus, which is kind of horrible and kind of convenient at the same time. I'm getting better bit by bit, but still...
