57

Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Each season we wear different types of cloting. For these different seasons I mix and match 7 peices of each type of clothing. Example: I have seven long sleeved shirts, 7 short sleeved shirts, 7 pairs of jeans, 7 pair of slacks, 7 pairs of shorts, 7 special occassion outfits, 7 pairs of socks, and

MORE INFORMATION:
7 of everything else. This minimzes spending, evens out shopping trips thru the year and is great for kids to learn this as well. Same with toys only allow so many toys, or storage bowls, shoes, coats, well try limiting everything including furniture and knick knacks.

    I'm curious about numbers of underpants, bras, pj's, pairs of socks... emoticon

    emoticon I LOVE THIS IDEA! I am calling it my 7up rule. This will help me de-clutter my closet. Those things that I don't wear and do not fit in my 7up closet can go to the Goodwill if they are in good shape and I can pick up a few things to add to my collection as I work toward my goal.

    Mmm... Something to suggest to my husband who has almost twice the closet space *I* do! Maybe if I let him have 10 days worth, it will give me (or him!) some lee-way on getting the laundry done on time. He'll still be able to get rid of a lot of stuff! It will also give me a way to figure out what my clothing NEEDS are, rather than just going to the store to see what they have. Great idea!

    7 is not a lot of clothes considering that clothing is seasonal and does not have to be out when not in season. 7 pants,7 shirts, 7 shorts, 7 short sleeved shirts, etc...
I had five children and had to keep some kind of order. This worked out great for me. Also taught my kids that they don't need a huge amount of items in order to be happy.

    The 7 is for the days of the week. One pair of clothing each day of the week before you need to do laundry. You can chose your own number, 7 was just mine.

    Wow, that's a lot of clothes!

    You are so brave!! It would be such a good idea but so scairy for someone that has way too much stuff put away just in case!

    ROBY THIS IS A GREAT IDEA AND I THINK IT WILL HELP MY CLOSET TOO. SINCE I AM DECLUTTERING I WILL HAVE TO GO BY THIS RULE. THANKS FOR THE GREAT TIP.

    I really like this idea. I live in a small home with my husband and two children. This is going to be my next goal. Thanks for the idea.
