The Clothes in my Closet

I'm trying a new thing this year - I turned all the clothes in my closet backwards. As I wear them, I'll turn them forwards again. Whatever's not turned back around by June gets sent to Goodwill!!

I suppose you might not be able to do this if you have vastly differing weather during different parts of the year, but here in Oregon it stays roughly between 40 and 80 degrees all year round. It does occasionally get  hotter or colder, but generally speaking, the same wardrobe works in every season!

So anyway... here's a look at my closet (taken about two weeks ago when I started this). I'll take another photo when I clean things out in June!!
Maybe I should buy more than black, blue, and gray???
What about you? How do YOU determine what you do or don't keep? Are you a ruthless de-clutterer or do you keep things around longer?

  1. Oooh I'm doing the same thing! But by the end of the year rather than June, because there are definitely 4 seasons to dress for in Minnesota. That said, I did just got rid of 4 bags of old clothes. Feels good!!

  3. This is a great idea. I'm doing a "Living Glamorously" challenge (http://vanishaslife.blogspot.com/search/label/LivingGlamourously). I've given up tshirts for a year. It's been great because it allowed me to see what I have, what I don't, try different things together and invest in staple pieces. I'm curious to see how you go. All the best!
