When I first saw the below video about the hanger method for cleaning out your closet I was honestly in shock. First of all, what a genius idea? Second of all, why didn’t I think of this before? I knew I was in need of a closet purge because it had been quite awhile since I sold or donated anything, but I didn’t realize how badly until I tried this life-changing hack.
Here’s how it works: make sure all of your hangers are in the same direction to start and when you wear something, simply hang it back up facing the opposite direction. I did this for about six months and found so many items I didn’t wear. Some were occasion-based pieces, like wedding guest dresses, that understandably went unworn but a lot were items I simply don’t have much use for anymore. Here’s what I discovered I wore the most in 2020 and which items are getting the boot.

My outerwear situation took an interesting turn in general during 2020, mostly because I moved from New York to Los Angeles. One category of jackets that I not only didn’t wear in LA but wouldn’t have reached for on the east coast either were bomber jackets. The trend had it’s moment and that moment has passed (for me!).
