When you open your closet, are you filled with this sudden PANG of dread…“What on EARTH am I going to wear today…?!!”
It’s not the LACK of clothes perhaps, but rather the lack of inspiration that makes us reach for that ‘same old thing’ week after week…while the rest of our wardrobe remains virtually untouched.
No matter how MANY clothes you own, most of us rarely wear more than a fraction of our closet.
That’s why it’s high time to get your creativity flowing, and start to ‘SHOP’ your existing clothes…one hanger at a time!
Hang(er!) ON!!! This is much easier to do than you might think! All it involves is YOU, your existing wardrobe, some clothes hangers and a diary…SIMPLES!
Just find a date to go through your closet, taking out ALL your clothes, and simply put them back in with the hooks on EACH hanger facing ‘outwards’.
After this process (when ALL your clothes are facing ‘out’) when you wear an item, just return it back to your closet BUT this time with the hook facing ‘inwards’.
You’ll soon start to notice what clothes you like to ROCK…and those you rarely touch!
Revisit your wardrobe in ONE month to examine the results! Those clothes that still have the hangers facing ‘outwards’ mean that you haven’t worn it all month long!!
Your challenge (should you choose to accept it!) will NOW be to wear one item from these ‘unworn’ clothes EVERY day for a week – this will make you rediscover old favourites AND can inspire whole new looks without spending a penny!
By following these 6 steps you’ll easily remember what clothes you tend to wear most, AND it forces you to start wearing those clothes you might have forgotten ALL about – breathing new life into old favourites!
By doing this ‘Hanger Challenge’, you’ll discover what clothes you wear frequently, AND those clothes you never even touch.
And for all those items that you really will NEVER wear, just donate them to someone who WILL!
You’ll not only free up some closet space…but you can feel good that someone else is enjoying the clothes you always felt guilty about not wearing!

I hope this fun ‘Hanger Challenge’ has inspired you to ruffle up your daily outfits, and add a little touch of variety to your look…after all playing dress-up should never, EVER end!
