Organizing Your Good Clothes

This Sparked Me!

You really only need six nice work outfits (seven if you dress similarly for work and church.) Keep them lined up in the same order in your closet and just work down the line. It will be six weeks before anyone sees you in the same outfit on the same day of the week.

If you wear outfit 1 to church this week, outfit 7 will fall on Sunday next week, outfit 6 will fall on Sunday the third week, etc. You will never wear any one outfit too often and you will not have to buy, organize and care for a large bulky wardrobe.

    I have hung all my clothes in color order, since my hubby works nights, I know where things are, and can "see" with just a little light in the room in the morning. I love this arrangement.

    I like the idea. I'm going to try this with what I already have. emoticon

    This is a terrific idea... I only have 4 outfits that fit right now... but as I lose weight I will begin to expand my wardrobe and having 6 outfits will be ideal!!!

    I have been doing this. I have a co-worker who is a clothes horse - she rarely wears the same outfit in a 12-month period. Last year one day when I entered her office, she looked up at me, frowned and said, "Don't you get tired of wearing the same clothes all the time? I couldn't stand it." All I could get out in the shock was, "No. It's just clothes." She said, "Well, I'm tired of seeing them!"
