There are some seriously smart organizing tricks that I don’t bother trying.
It’s my developed-from-experience opinion that each person has a unique brain and must find what works for her in her home. Knowing/accepting this helps me not give up completely when expert advice fails miserably for me.
It also helps me not waste time on certain things.
This . . . is how the hangers in my closet generally look. It’s why I’m pretty sure the Turn All Your Hangers Around Until You Wear Something and After a Year You Can See What You Haven’t Worn trick wouldn’t be worth my time.
It’s why I believe a better technique for my personality is to purge. Purge like a crazy woman. Purge like my life depends on it.
I’m working on purging my own clothing right now. Perhaps one day the turned-around-hanger trick will be worth my time, but not yet.
Oh, and I do have dreams of grown-up hangers, but I’ve always been paralyzed by the expense . . . knowing how many I would need.
Perhaps that can be my reward for getting rid of clothes!
