When is it Time to Donate?

I never know when I should get rid of clothes and when I do have those moments when I need to clean out my closet, I have a hard time letting go.  I found this trick on Pinterest and so far it has been working.  

1. Turn all of your hangers in your closet backyard so the hook is facing away from you.
2. When you wear something and you hang it back up, turn that hanger toward you.
3. Repeat

After a month or two, you will begin seeing what clothes you never wear because the hangers will still be backward.  This trick has helped me so much!  I always think I will need that shirt or those pants for something when in reality I haven't worn them in three years. I went about six months doing this and here is the result!

I always take my clothes into a resale store to see if I am able to make any money off of them.  This time I made $43.00 and was able to donate the rest to Goodwill.  

It was so nice getting a "fresh start" and knowing that now I have only the clothes that I actually wear in my closet.  Needless to say, I have more room and space now and it feels great! :)

How do you know when to donate?

DIY Spring Wreath

I absolutely love making wreaths!  Using the plain twig wreaths makes it a cinch because all you need to do is find the right items to hot glue on!

I began with some inspiration on Pinterest and headed to the craft store.  
Here is a plain twig wreath which are usually around $4.99.

I found these bright flowers, the white initial, and the accent flowers.
I hot glued each item down and I had my final product in less than 15 minutes!

Who's ready for spring?!

Peek into my Closet- March

I always like to try to make my summer clothes wearable in the winter to expand my wardrobe.  Layering with a cardigan and leggings makes those summer dresses warm and cozy in the freezing temps!
