Behind Clothes' Doors
by Lora Hart

Relax | Reduce | Reuse | Recycle | Reinvent

Open the door to your closet and peer into its depths. Is it packed? Filled to bursting with things you just had to have? Couldn't live without? And yet you still have nothing to wear, right?

Wrong! Beneath the soft gray clouds of dust, behind the cobweb covered boxes, atop the tiptoe crushing upper shelves are the un-remembered, and under utilized gems of your bygone shopping sprees. Stop equivocating. Put aside your armoire ennui, put out some elbow grease and just get to it. Clean out that closet and rejuvenate your wardrobe!

Misery Loves Company
Ask a good friend (an acquaintance couldn't possibly love you enough for this task) to help with the project. This is a step by step (by step) process and the job will go faster, be more fun and less daunting with two heads and four hands. Offer some enticement with deep-dish pizza, a good Merlot (or a tanker of ale if you're so inclined), Motown's greatest hits and a viewing of Isaac Mizrahi's film "Ready To Wear". Then promise to help your friend with her/ his own closet next weekend.
