Part in parcel with single socks are underwear that are too worn in (and possibly starting to collect holes). We all have a very “loved” pair lurking in our closets, and trust us, we get it, they’re so comfy. But it’s time to get rid of them. Buy a new pair and make sure they’re just as comfortable as your old pair.
Step one: take all the wire hangers from dry-cleanings past and get rid of them. Step two: take all the damaged hangers in your closet and throw them out. Step three: buy as many of the same hangers as needed. Step four: rejoice in a neat closet.
I know, I know, we all want to use every candle to the end of its wick, but this spring let’s just free ourselves from the agony.

Have you ever researched the shelf life of all those beauty products you have in your medicine cabinet? A lot of beauty products have a shorter shelf life than you’d presume.

While you’re at it, you might as well check expiration dates on all the medicine in there, too.
