So I spent the first day of the New Year in cleaning out my closet. What is it about this simple chore that makes you think you can tackle the entire world? It's not as if anyone else ever sees my closet--it's just a little something to make my life easier.
If you start off with all your hangers facing the same direction, wear an item, return it to the closet with the hanger facing the opposite direction, at the end of the year (or whatever period of length you choose) you will know in an instant which clothes you wear and which ones haven't seen the light of day in a while and can probably be donated.
So day one of 2012 was productive, just 364 to go!
