      On Jan. 1st, turn all your hangers backwards. As you wear clothes, turn the hanger around. Anything that is still backwards on June 1, donate. I really Love this Idea, I know I have things that never get worn and someone could be using them!!!! genius idea!

      Every January turn all of the hangers in your closet backwards, like this. It takes about 60 seconds: Each time you wear an item, hang it back up in the normal fashion, which takes zero effort to remember or do. In June, any item that is still hanging backwards has not been worn in 6 months, donate it to Goodwill unless you can come up with a good reason to save it. It's a genius idea!!

      On Jan. 1st, turn all your hangers backwards. As you wear clothes, turn the hanger around. Anything that is still backwards on August 1, DONATE. - I did this last year... maybe in the spring. I guess it's time to go see what's still hanging backwards.

    Tip: Once a week, toss in a few frozen cubes of white vinegar and turn on your disposal. The vinegar will get in all the moving nooks and crannies that are otherwise hard to get to and the ice will sharpen your blades.
