I found that starting each day with saying something positive to myself and then going out the door each day wearing my "Clown Face" is what keeps me positive. By clown face I mean that I only show the world what will make them smile or feel happy! By doing this eventually I feel happy.
This does not mean putting on makeup like a clown - just resolving to put out good vibes and a smile so that all others I come in contact with will in some way or another feel good that they saw me. This is an old technique that my father taught me.

Each new season I turn all of the seasonal items hangers around to face me. When I take the item off to wear it I put the hanger in the laundry room. Finally when I hang the item back in the closet I face the hanger away from me. At the end of the season I get rid of any clothes that have a hanger facing me because I know I didn't wear them. It also lets me know whether I wore something already so I don't do repeat outfits too often.224
This isn't my idea I read it some where. At the beginning of the year take all your hanging cloths and turn them around (hanger facing the other way) as you wear and wash the cloths replace them facing the way you usually place them in the closet. At the end of the year what ever is still facing the opposite direction can be thrown out or better yet donated because you haven't worn it in a year.
It seems when I'm rushing and late, and I'm looking for that certain shirt, skirt, WHATEVER, in my closet that's the time I can't find it. To make it easier to find organize by COLOR and you'll be surprise how much easier it is. Also, hang things you don't wear that often with the hook of the hanger FACING you, if you notice a year later that the hook is STILL facing you, get rid of it, if you haven't worn it in a year, you probably don't intend to
