Closet clutter: It’s a mess, and dang it, it’s a new year! Out with the old already people!
Does looking in your closet prove to be no better than staring into a bottomless pit? No worries-we have just the tip to help you get your clothing game in order. It’s called (drum roll please) the Discardian Method.
Discardia is all about letting go of things you don’t use and don’t need in order to simplify your life. Among other amazing organizational tips, the Discardia blog teaches us to simplify our closet with ease…allowing you to let go of those items that are just cluttering up your poor closet.
The Closet Trick
Have items that you don’t wear, don’t fit into, have emotional connections with, or just plain don’t know what you use in your closet? This trick allows you to visualize what you own and wear with a few easy steps.
- Turn every item of clothing on a hanger backwards in your closet (so the hook is facing you).
- Wear the clothes you love as normal.
- When you put the clothes back into your closet, hang them as you normally would (hook facing away from you).
- In six months look to see what items are still hanging backward.
- Stand in amazement at the items you haven’t worn in over 180 days.
- Donate the stuff that’s in good shape, toss the rest.
Genius! As Hanger’s Kasper would say “New Year, new you!” (and new closet!)
While this hanger trick will certainly keep what you wear top of mind and help you eliminate any unused items at the end of six months, what about the items you only wore once or twice? Are they worth keeping or tossing? How will you remember which ones fall into that category?! Never fear. Hanger is here. Our handy dandy cloud closet app lets you track exactly what you wear and how many times you wore it.
