Closet Full and Nothing to Wear - Organizing Tips

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

I have a closet full of clothes, but feel like I have nothing to wear. I go shopping and buy cute stuff, but end up wearing it only once or twice. How can I shop more efficiently?

Dear Clothes Horse,

You need to clear out your closet, get organized, and follow a few simple rules.

1. If you haven't worn an item in 3 years, get it out of your closet - give it away, donate it, sell it at a consignment shop, have a yard sale, or sell it online at a place such as ebay.

2. Organize your closet so that all the jackets hang together in one section; all the skirts in another, and all the tops in a third section, all the dresses in another section, etc.

3. If you buy a new item, it must coordinate with at least three other items. For example, a top must go with a skirt, pants, and cardigan.

4. Don't take price tags off until you are about to wear the item. Keep the receipt attached to the item or in its pocket if it has one.

5. If you've bought a new item and haven't worn it in 2 weeks, take it back.

If you follow these rules, you'll have a closet full of clothes that you'll want to wear.
