Closet Hanger Experiment: Final Update


So, four months have passed and my closet hanger experiment is finally complete. All the clothes I haven't worn are still facing the opposite direction and I now have a better idea of what I actually  do and don't wear. Some of the items not worn were sweaters and flannels - something I completely expected not to wear because, well, we're in the middle of summer. There were, however, shirts I didn't wear that I COULD have worn. Shirts that I kept finding an excuse to keep, and  I see now that they truly are being left untouched and just taking up space.

Back in June, I did an update (you can read that here), and at that point, everything was split about halfway. For the most part, it's still that way. I think that's so crazy because that means I only wear roughly about 50% of what I have. That other 50% is just taking up space and many times distracting me from the stuff I like, resulting in me taking longer to pick out an outfit (something that really shouldn't take that long). I'm definitely not aiming to create a slim capsule wardrobe anytime soon, but it does feel so nice to have it cleaned out. For everything I didn't wear, aside from fall and winter attire, I plan to go through it again and try to donate most of it. I definitely recommend this trick to anyone because it can REALLY open your eyes.

*I think it's important to note that I have been cleaning out my closet for the past year and a half, so with that said, this would be even more beneficial for someone who hasn't even begun to clean out their wardrobe yet.* 

**Also import to note, not all of my clothes are shown in this photo like in the photos for the previous blog post. I have some sweaters and other bulkier tops folded away in my dresser and other casual, lounging shirts folded away as well. Just letting you know so I don't create a wrong perception**
