New Year, New You -- Get Organized!

1. Ready to clean out your closet? Switch the direction of your hangers in your closet. As soon as you wear a piece of clothing, return it to your closet with the hanger facing the opposite direction. That way by a certain amount of time -- you'll know what you like and what you should probably donate.

2. Here's a new way to hang your jewelry. Use large pebbles and attach double-side (foam or heavy duty) tape to cling to your bedroom wall. That's it. Add your jewelry and you have the best looking wall on the block.
