Some time in early January I stepped into a shop that was having an incredible sale and bought a good number of good things for less than $50.  When I got home I realized that I didn't have many open hangers and start doing a closet purge.  I have a problem with losing things in my closet.  Clothes slide down in between things and I don't see them, so I pulled everything out and I decided that I was going to take a picture of EVERYTHING in my closet.  Looking at all the pictures on my computer was overwhelming.  I have great clothes; I just need to remember what they are and be more creative about pairing things up.

So I decided that my resolution should be that I am going to utilize my ENTIRE wardrobe this year.  I don't need to buy anything new, I can work with what I have.

Which leads us after my very long intro into what I actually did about all this.  First, I printed out all my pictures wallet-sized, nine to a page.  Then I laminated the front with some of that press on laminate stuff and stuck a small square magnet on the back.




T-shirts I did multiples to one photograph.  I did all solid t's in one pic, long sleeve in another, etc.



Then I stuck them all to the back of my metal bedroom door, right next to my closet.



They're somewhat organized into groups of sweaters, tops, work trousers, etc.  I use the middle area to kind of work out some things in my head and think about layering summer tops and long sleeve t's and things.  So far it's worked out really, really well.  I feel like I'm on one of those tv shows where they teach you to shop your closet and everyone cries and hugs at the end.  Well, without the crying and hugging.

So no more clothes shopping for me for a while.  Of course that doesn't mean I can't keep making clothes.  I can't stifle my creativity, right?

This idea totally reminds me of the computer program the girl in Clueless had! I'm reminded because the movie was on early today! Great idea!

This is awesome!  I also have wardrobe woes due to sharing a closet and dresser with my boyfriend - I end up losing things.  I might try this method Smiley

That is such a good idea. I always try to think of ways to organize my closet and I don't know why I never thought of doing this.
