I love this helpful hint! I can't wait till next January 1st, but I think it will still work now and then I can clean out in July.

What do you think? Is it easy for you to get rid of clothes? Is your closet jam packed?

That's a cool idea. I know there are still things in my closet I could pull out and donate. I did a small purge last month and will do so again. I will try the suggestion you posted too. Thanks!

That's a fun idea with the hangers. I'm pretty good at keeping only what I like and feel good in. I used to have the bad habit of not trying on clothes before I bought them. That made for a lot of mistakes hanging in my closet. I actually have a blouse that I'm giving to a friend tonight. I like the style but the colour does not do me any favours.

That's a great idea! I usually don't have a hard time getting rid of clothes, but I probably don't do it enough.

This assumes I am capable of keeping my closet organized in any way. What I did was put a bare minimum in my closet and the rest in a guest closet. Whenever I remember an item, I go into the guest closet to get it. After the end of this school year, I will donate anything still in the guest closet. Same idea, less crowding.

Also, I sometimes wear something just because it has been so long since I've done laundry or because I feel like I have to wear it because it's there so that I don't wear the same thing over and over, even if I don't really like it. This makes me only wear things I actually like even if I wear the same sweater four times in a month.

I have a one year rule for most of my clothes. If I havent worn it in a year then I get rid of it. Ok...I still have a few things that I have kept longer without wearing but not much. This helps me to purge every Wednesday.

Clever idea. I purged after I retired, but this might get me to seriously rethink some of the tops and dresses I used to wear to work. I kerp thinking I'll wear them when I go out. But I don't.

I have done this in the past.

It works if you have the fortitude to rally forth. I talked myself out of pitching far too many items to be effective though.

I have managed to reduce the number of just in case skinny clothes though. I've decided that if skinnier happens, I'm buying new stuff.

What I had a hard time with was seasonal items and special occasion "dress up" wear.

In Missouri, we alternate between mild winters and severe winters. Or, mild to medium winters with severe episodes.

I also kept too many sweaters and jackets since I tend to run hot too often to enjoy them.
