I’m a bit of a clothes horse so I’ve had to enforce a strict “one in / one out” policy on my closet. Consider it LA’s hottest and most exclusive new club. There are human Roombas, anorexic lemurs wearing angora sweaters… wait, wait. No – none of that.
But I do have a max. capacity policy because otherwise I would be drowning in clothes. When something new comes home, something old has gotta go.
Here’s what I do –
Whenever I move or do some spring cleaning, I make sure all of my hangers are turned the same way. After I wear a shirt, I turn the hanger around – thus indicating that I have worn that shirt and it’s earned its stay. If I get to the next move / cleaning spree and there are shirts still facing the wrong way… well, it’s time to say goodbye.
Give it a try!
