As men, we have an incredibly hard time getting rid of stuff including old clothing. The more it looks like a rag, the tougher it is to toss. In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro stops the insanity! The hanger will help!
We, as stylish men, can't operate a wardrobe effectively if a bunch of crap is in there! If you aren't wearing it, it doesn't fit, or you don't love it, get rid of it. Your wardrobe is more efficiently utilized if you have items that you actually wear, fit, and love!
Keep it clean and simple but keep a few ratty of tee shirts and a few pair of pants for working in the yard. The majority of your wardrobe should be pieces that you love, that fit great and that you feel confident & amazing wearing.
PHASE ONE - Go through and pull anything that you don't like, that you don't wear, are worn out, and / or haven't worn in 12+ months. In the end, you will have a trash bag filled with old clothes to give to a homeless shelter or the Goodwill. Your old gear will help someone else. You can always donate to someone who needs it!
PHASE TWO - Turn all your hangers backwards (all of them!). As you wear a specific item, put it back the correct way. After a year, all backwards hangers have items you can get rid of. With drawers, store the items the 'wrong' way. Place back the correct way. Set an alert on your phone for a year purge of your closet and drawers.
