Oh, day three is here, in my progress of getting organized, and all I can say is, "Whoops."
I can honestly say despite opening the site up to the world, I wasn't really expecting the world to show up at my doorstep. I'm both excited at this, and a bit, uh, nervous maybe? Should I start censoring now before the NSA/FBI/CIA/DHS shows up? (DHS always reminds me of Dobson High School when I see it, and not the retarded name for the newest government bureaucracy created by the worst president this country has ever known.)
But I digress. I'm getting organized today.
Day 3: Use reverse psychology on your closet.
Studies show that we wear a scant 20 percent of our wardrobe 80 percent of the time. To free up closet space, try reversing all your hangers so the hooks face you, Walsh (the guy from the first tip
) suggests. As you hang up clothing you've worn, turn the hanger around. After a month, you'll know which pieces are in your rotation and which to oust or place in deep, deep storage.
Wow. This could be one of the most brilliant organizational ideas ever.
If only I actually hung anything up in my closet.
I have about 1/5 of the master bedroom closet hanging space, which is about 3 feet of hanging space. I guess I could do this trick for Kris, and see what comes out of the closet for him. Or, I could take everything out of my dresser and pile it up into one big pile. Only the items I take out of the pile, wear, wash and fold could be put back into the dresser. After a month I'll know what I wear and what I don't.
Or, I could take today's 20 minutes and just clean out the closet, getting rid of mid-90's era dress slacks and business suits that just.don't.work with my current working style. No need to wear suits when jammies will do just fine.
Oh, and Kris made the bed this morning.
