The Simple Hack that Practically Purges Your Closet for You
Do you walk into your full closet and come out frustrated feeling like you have nothing you want to wear? You are not alone.
According to a recent study, the average American woman believes that 21% of her clothing is ‘unwearable,’ 24% of the clothing is too loose, and 33% of the clothing is too tight. And to make matters worse, 12% of the clothes are new and unworn.
