Clean Out Your Closet

This is one of my favorite tips for deciding which clothes you should get rid of.  Every year at the same time turn every hanger the wrong way (with the hanger hook facing you) on the bar in your closet.  When you wear something hang it up the normal way (with the hook away from you).  This allows you to see what you have worn or not.  After a designated amount of time, anything on a hanger still facing the wrong way is what should go.  If you don't wear it, donated to someone who will.

They say most people wear 20% of there closet 80% of the time.  I find that I wear a larger portion of my closet because I can instantly see what I have not worn.  Why have them if you don't wear them?

I had something very specific in mind when trying to find pillows for my zebra chairs.  Because of the unique size I knew I was going to have to make them.  I found a pillow for $7.00 at Ross that was the right color.  I essentially just cut the pillow in half, sewed the open ends shut creating 2 pillows, then re-stuffed.
