I wish this idea were my own, but it is a good one. When you're getting your "new" season's clothing out of storage, hang everything up with the hangers backward (with the part that goes over the rod facing the back of the closet, not the front). As you wear and wash items, hang them correctly. Within a few months (weeks, even), you'll see exactly which clothes you wear and which you don't. Donate the clothes you don't wear and make room - either breathing space or room for new.

We've just moved into a new-to-us home - hanging photos/art is my big project for the month. I've already had our newest family photo framed (and I've hung it!). The insurance adjuster is here today, replacing some glass that was broken in the move. And cosmetic changes to the basement are almost finished. So it is time to hang! I will work on this today!

I'm having so much fun with the January Cure! Best of all, we've just moved so I can skip some days - like today. But planning the Get Together and working on the Goal Project (hanging photos and art throughout the new house) are big enough!

I just bought a blue lounge cable organizer and it really helps. I have a small kitchen desk with an outlet slightly above the desk. The "cable box" hides my surge protector and all the extra cords, and makes a small shelf for my iPhone when charging. Love it. I also use the hook and loop (velcro) strips and they're great.
