As i was sitting around waiting for my wife to finish chatting with some old woman she’d just met, they got to talking about how to clean out their closets. Ya … don’t ask, right? Anyway, Luann brought up that one technique she knows of is that you turn all of your shirt hangers backwards, and then whenever you wear/wash/hang-up a shirt, put it right-way in the closet. After a year, check your closet and see what’s still backwards … and then get rid of it. (The old lady suggested maybe two or three years would be better than just one year)Anyway, i don’t put my hangers backwards, but i always put my newly washed shirts on the RIGHT side of my closet. So over time, things that never get worn gravitate towards the left. Every now and then (i don’t really give myself a timeline), i grab the leftmost couple of shirts and toss them in the trash. That’s one big difference between Luann and me. She tends to collect things. I tend to throw things away. I think between us we strike a good balance (although i do take the opportunity when she’s not around to fill up a few trash bags without telling her). If i were more philosophically minded, i’m sure i could find a life-lesson in here somewhere.
