Backward Hanger Challenge-Closet Clean Out Begins

I have been doing the backward hanger challenge for almost two months now. I totally recommend doing this. It’s been a real eye opener. And the reality is I only wear a small portion of my clothes. For example:

  • Out of my 17 dresses, I currently only wear 2 on a regular basis.
  • Out of my 19 pair of shorts, I currently only wear 4 on a regular basis.
  • Out of my 28 pair of pants/jeans, I currently only wear 5 on a regular basis.

I counted a total of 34 items I normally wear on a rotating basis. Whaaaat..

That being said, my first goal is to condense to the following:

  • 5 pair of jeans (boyfriend, skinny/regular x2, cropped flare, around the house pair)
  • 1 pair of white jeans.
  • 1 pair of black jeans
  • 10 pairs of pants (other than jeans. Including nice pants, cargos, drawstring, khaki)
  • 7 pairs of shorts
  • 2 skirts
  • 10 everyday dresses

I was almost successful with this first goal. I did keep 3 extra pair of jeans (blue, white, and black). I’m happy to report I don’t miss a thing.
