When your closet starts getting overcrowded, take all the hangers with your clothes and put them in backwards. If you use a garment, you can reverse the hanger. After a month pull all the clothes that are still hung backwards and remove them -- you're not wearing them and they just take up space!
You can put them into a temporary "hold" area but if you still haven't worn them give them to Goodwill or your favorite charity. That leaves space for all the new "thinner you" clothes you'll need to get!

Move most of your clothes (try it first with tops) to a closet in another room. When you need something to wear, grab it from the other closet. Once it has been worn, it can be washed and put back in your original closet. Anything left in the spare closet after 3 months, donate!
You can do this a few times a year with the different seasons. You can do it with pants too though I know most of us have more of a surplus in the tops department. If you haven't worn a certain tank top all summer long, are you really going to miss it when it's finally gone?
1.A binder clip serves as a key chain/money holder you can clamp to your waistband for a purse-free morning walk. 2.Pretty ribbon revives an old lamp shade. Apply a thin layer of glue & press on each piece of ribbon, matching the ends neatly. 3.That straightening iron works on more than ram-bunctious hair: Use it to press between buttons, where a regular iron won’t fit. 432
4.Cleaning Supply Holder-Assemble a spray-cleaner arsenal by installing a rod in the closet or underneath the sink & then hooking the bottles onto it by their triggers.
It takes energy to go through all those unused items in your home...which means while you are doing it you are burning calories!...take the items and either have a garage sale or donate them...(included are some suggestions)....which ever you choose, your home will look better and so will you!!:)
