Easily Arranged

We just moved, and the most daunting task - the job we left for absolute last - was cleaning out our closet. And we're no clotheshorse, it's just that it can be really difficult sometimes to discern between what you wear frequently and what you dream of wearing frequently. That's why we love this tip from ReadyMade, which simply and easily allows one to weed through a closet like some kind of clothes roto-rooter...

To start, put all your clothes in the closet with the hangers facing the wrong way on the rod (hooks out). As you wear your clothes, hang them back up with the hanger facing in the right direction. After six months (their suggestion, but we might wait a year as some clothes are seasonal) donate or give away all the clothes that are still hanging backwards. That'll definitely simplify the process.
