Lets face it, the girl is only going to get older and eventually she will kick me out of her closet.
So, I was watching the Nate Burkus Show... since we got rid of cable and I no longer have HGTV Nate is my only contact with the design world these days... other then blogs of course:) I heart Nate. I LOVE his style and his re purposed furniture is AMAZING! Someday I hope to be as awesome as him... hey a girl can dream can't she.
Anyway, at the end of each show he usually gives a few suggestions for space saving, or organization or what not. On this particular day he found the solution to the above problem. Let me show you...
(this is just a small section of my OVERFLOWING closet)
This is what he suggested. Turn all of your hangers around backwards. (this took me all of 5 minutes to accomplish) When you wear something and then put it back, put it back with the hanger facing the right way. Then at the end of 6 months or a year or whatever time you allot you can actually SEE what items you have not worn. GENIUS!!!
I have not figured out what to do about my shoes, or folded clothes yet but this will at least be a great start to thinning out.
The only fear I have is that I will end up wearing something just so that I can turn that darn hanger around and keep it. Thus defeating the purpose of the experiment and possibly commiting some serious fashion faux pas in the name of saving an item. I will try my best to avoid this.
If you see me walking around in a tutu and a ripped sweater, don't judge.
