Got 5 minutes?

There’s an easy and clever trick you’ve gotta try so you can clean your closet and sort the clothes you love (and the ones that just aren’t cutting it anymore). And it only takes a few minutes!

Keep this in mind the next time you’re going full KonMari on your home.

Here’s the trick. All you have to do is turn all your hangers around so they face backward (the hook should be facing toward you). Each time you wear an item and then go to hang it back up, just switch the hanger back to normal. After a few months, you’ll see which pieces you haven’t worn, making it a breeze to pull and donate the unworn clothes. So easy!

    I LOVE this idea!!! We have 7 people living in a small 3 bedroom 1 bath home. My husband, myself, and our 5 children. Iโ€™m about to flip all of our hangers around. This will help me so much when purging the kids closets! Thank you!!!
