"It’s especially helpful since they say you shouldn’t wash your jeans after every wear." —erinberson

6. If you don’t wear something within two weeks of buying it (unless it’s for a special occasion), return it.

"Chances are, if you’re not excited enough to wear it right after you buy it, it’s just going to collect dust in your closet." —colleenhan


11. In the event you need to pull something out of the hamper to wear again, put vodka in a spray bottle and spray it down.


15. Use a thick hair elastic to expand the waistband of your jeans.

"Loop it through the button hole then around the button. Even if your jeans fit well, this gives the waist a little stretch so they’re more comfortable." —eawynn8908


18. Put your clothes in your closet with the hangers reversed. As you pull out clothes, reverse the hanger back. Donate the clothes you didn't use every six months or every year.

19. Use a lingerie bag for washing underwear and bras.

20. Pick out your entire outfit and put it on a hanger the night before.

"That way you are prepared, and don’t waste precious morning minutes deciding between a dress or trousers, or desperately searching for a pair of black socks." —lisejuhlj

23. And use corn starch or baking soda to get grease stains off your clothes. (Also, this chart is super nifty for all stains!)
