Declutter The Closet: The Reverse Hanger Method

The Reverse Hanger Method

Living in a spacious clutter-free space actually gives you a sense of tranquility. A  home cluttered up distracts us and limits our ability to process information.

Is your closet so cluttered you don’t know what’s in there anymore? Do you find it hard to let go of things that you never wear anymore? Does the idea of decluttering seem overwhelming? 

The Reverse Hanger Method is a game changer. In no time you will free up closet space and simplify your wardrobe. 

Step One –

Empty out all your garments on hangers and then hang them back backwards, so that the open end of each hanger now faces you. 

Step Two – 

Every time you wear a piece of clothing, when you put it back, make sure the hanger faces the usual way (the opening facing away from you).

Step Three – 

Set a time limit, three to six months later. Then assess what clothes you still wear and the things that are just taking up space. 

Step Four –

Once your time is up, take a good look at what clothes you haven’t worn. Pull unworn garments out of the closet and consider why you haven’t worn them. Compare these items with the clothes you did wear. 

  • Is it a style that you no longer like anymore? 
  • Is it the material that you don’t feel good about? 
  • Are there colors that don’t look good on you? 
  • Did you simply buy some things impulsively and now realize that it’s not you? 

Step Five –

The reverse hanger method is super simple and doesn’t take any time to implement. It will become real clear what you should either donate or sell and what may need to be tossed out. 

Donating is by far the easiest way to move on. Feel good about knowing that the garments you donate will be worn by someone who will love wearing them. quickest and simplest way to  your unwanted clothes on to someone who may be able to use them. 

Believe me when I tell you that you will feel so much better when you’ve completed this process. Now let’s get the rest of your wardrobe organized! You can tackle the clothes dresser to get that under control by using the Drawer Rotation Declutter Method. 

Still need more space? 

For many of us, there just isn’t enough available space in our home for everything we own. Savvy folks are realizing that self storage eliminates the need to move to a larger apartment or opt for an expensive office lease. It’s economical to use storage facilities, as people are increasingly living in tighter quarters.
