Trying To Clean Out My Closet

Hello Divas!!

I am attempting to clean out my closet AGAIN to make way for some fresh fashion. I am not a girly type girl and I feel very comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt or a polo shirt.

I have been wearing the same clothes for a LONG time now and I think I would like to get some new items. I did manage to get one or two pieces on sale or clearance but I really would like to do a total overhaul of my closet.

I tried the hanger method but never went through with it. The hanger method is where you
-turn all of your hangers backward
-wear something
-wash items and place them on hangers facing the correct way
-after a predetermined time (usually 6 months) anything on a backwards facing hanger needs to go.

Of course if you have winter months you may need to extend the time but I have clothes that I have not worn when it was hot nor when it was cold. I got rid of a few of them but I just did not get rid of all.

My plan now is to go cold turkey and just strip things off the hangers. Once I have removed EVERYTHING from the closet I will go back through and do a Love it or Leave it method.

If it is an item I Love then it will go on a hanger. If I am not madly in love with it then it will go into a sorting pile and may end up not being a part of my wardrobe moving forward.
