I have too many clothes. It’s not a terrible fate, but it is something that I intend to change. So I’m jumping on the “turn your hangers around” bandwagon, with one modification. After I’ve worn and cleaned/laundered something, I’ll put the garment back in my closet with the hanger turned “backwards”. (i.e. the pointy part facing front – see the white cardigan in my closet photo) (Thanks to http://theclosettherapist.blogspot.com/ for this great idea!)
And I’m also instituting a monitoring policy in my dresser drawers: all garments which are normally stored folded which get worn will be put back into the drawer with the neckline toward the front, rather than toward the back as I normally store things.
AND, I’m going to put all of my lingerie and hosiery into bags, and as I wear something it gets to stay OUT of the bag.
By the end of September, I’m going to have a bunch of “forward” facing hangers, right side up tee shirts and bagged undergarments that are going to have to petition to be allowed to stay chez nous.
Seriously, if I don’t wear something in the next 3 1/2 months, do I really need to keep it?
I’m putting this out there before all of you because (1) you can check up on my progress, and (2) you can measure my accomplishments against Vivienne’s impressively well curated wardrobe.
Well-curated. I’m going to have to expand on that line of thinking…
