We’re on day 11 of sort save splurge and we’re going to make this as painless as possible. Go through your closet and make three piles (donate, toss and keep). Now, hang everything back up with the hangers facing the wrong way and mark the date in your calendar. Do the same thing for all your shoes.
My shoe situation is in a weird place right now, so I set up two baskets in my closet. I dumped what shoes I had into the left basket and I’m going to put shoes in the right hand basket as I wear them. I put all my winter boots/snow shoes in storage since we live in San Diego at the moment, but could be in a cold climate our next move…. And leather boots are expensive.
When you revisit your closet in six months, seriously consider donating the items still facing the wrong way. If you live in an area with more than one season (ie not San Diego), you’ll obviously have to be a little more lenient to account for seasons.
