    If they are clothes you're not going to wear anymore, why hang them up at all? Donate them somewhere! This one I do not "get."

    Lol Karen...good point! But I think the part that was missing was the explanation that ppl "say" they cannot get rid of certain items of clothing because they are going to wear them again....the inevitable "someday." If the hanger never turns around, it was never worn...and wa-la...donate!

    I am one of those people...I am ever hopeful that I will miraculously lose 20 lbs and will NEED all those clothes in my closet, saving us from having to buy a whole new wardrobe. (That is the line I use anyway to justify my bulging closet and dresser!)
    Mind you, I am typing this as I eat an entire frozen pizza by myself!
    It's thin crust though so that does really count?!?!

    I am going to try the squeegee thing...I wonder if that really work? Has anyone else ever tried it?
