Time to clean out the closet?

Here's something you could do once a year to give that rod in the closet a break:

Go through your wardrobe and pick out the clothes you haven't worn in 9 months or more (this allows for seasonal wear). Ask yourself - am I ever going to wear this again? Come on - don't use the excuse "as soon as I lose that next 10 pounds". Just be realistic and take out everything that you know in your heart is past its prime and donate it to the local charity. If you're not that charitable, bring it to a second-hand clothing shop and see if it sells. These places often give great returns if you spend your credit in the store.

Funny you should mention that......we just did exactly that. We donated 3 big bags full of clothes to the salvation army. Not only do you get a cleaner organized closet, but you feel good doing it.
