|Pardon the wrinkles. Just popped this off the Q-snaps long enough to take a picture.|
I decided I needed to tackle my closet today since it is a kind of showery, gray, misty sort of I don't want to be outside kind of day. So to the closet I went........this is what the the floor usually looks like by the end of the week (the part I am willing to show you).
Mr. W. gets in bed at 8. Heck, I
am mostly likely not even home yet or if I am, I am not inside yet, so it makes keeping the closet neat difficult. By the time I decide to get undressed for the night he is in dreamland and I need to be quiet so I just kick off the shoes, etc., etc. This of course has lead to a grand sort out of all things in the closet today. It is kind of the August ritual that developed when I used to have to assess who had what and who needed what to start school....but enough.
More important, I did just want to share this trick for cleaning and sorting out clothes in the closet. I read this somewhere.....here's what you do......for one year every time you wear something you hang the hanger backwards on the rod. At the end of one year, you know you have not worn the article of clothing in over a year and therefore, can chuck it! I choose April Fools Day as my start date since I am foolish to think that I will even fit back into some of the things I 'save'.
On that note, happy stitching all......may your stitches be many and your frogs few and I will return to start sorting the drawers in the closet!
