Use it or Lose it!
Ok, here's my organizing tip for the day. This is more of a de-cluttering tip. We've all heard that we should get rid of anything that we don't use in a year's time, but sometimes it can be hard to "prove" to ourselves that we really don't use some things. (This especially goes for clothes and shoes!) Well yesterday I read a tip somewhere that has to do with clothing that I thought was absolutely brilliant. Here's what you do. Once a year (could be January, or it could be today), turn all of the hangers in your closet around backwards. As you wear an item, re-hang it with the hanger turned the correct way. At the end of a year's time, anything that you haven't worn will still be backwards. That way you can quickly identify and remove items that you truly don't use. And just think...the more clothes you get rid of that you don't wear, the neater and more spacious your closet will feel!
