LOVED all the feedback and comments on last week’s closet tip about facing your garments let or right. Here’s another new take on organizing from an anonymous reader…
Recently entering a new lifestyle phase – retirement in her case – she devised a fresh way to weed out her closet a bit at a time. She organized her garments by categories — bottom garments, under-layer tops, etc.) and then started with one category, selecting each day the item hanging on the far LEFT.
She’d build an outfit around that piece, enjoy it for the day, then (after laundering if necessary) return it to the RIGHT end of the lineup. Next day there’s a new item at the head of the line, waiting for it’s own outfit combo.
And if she couldn’t make an outfit with an item, or if she didn’t enjoy wearing it after all, it went into a spare closet as a future charitable donation.
Category by category, she went through her entire wardrobe that way, ending up with only the pieces that were wear-tested favorites.
Thanks to all of you for sharing your creativity. I’m working now on a new format for these blog conversations that leverage YOUR knowledge in a much more full way — stay tuned for big news soon.
