Did I wear that last time??

Do you ever worry about wearing the same outfit to an event with the same people, but cannot remember what on earth you wore the last time you went?

I actually tried writing my outfit down on my calendar every day so I didn't wear the same thing to the same client over and over again.

Now the problem solvers over at Weekdate have designed a closet notepad to track your outfits so you're not seen in the same thing too often.

This has even bigger implications for organizing though. If you take the time to really write down what you wear every day, at the end of a year you'll be able to clearly see, without a doubt, if you don't wear certain clothes. And that can help tremendously when you have to make room in your closet and make tough choices about what to keep... and what's gotta go!

It comes with a hole for hanging.
If you don't have a hook in your closet, 3M Command hooks are super easy to put up and come in so many sizes you can find one for just about anything. And you don't have to put a hole in the wall because they stick right on. I like this size for my calendar - it hooks right on.

I tried it and found I wasn't writing as often as I should, and it didn't give me a visual on the outfit. So my version of tracking (only to answer "what should I wear?" rather than 'what did I wear?") is to take a snapshot of me wearing the outfit with my cell phone. Then the record is always where I need it.

I can name the pix if I'm bored in line or something ("biz lunch" or "brunch" or whatever) but mostly I need to see what I looked okay in for those days when I feel like nothing I put on will look cute. My closet is well organized but in separates, not in outfits, so this does it all -- a cell phone jpg really is worth a 100 words! (Turn on your lights and turn off your flash when you shoot yourself in the mirror.) Hope this ALT helps your readers ~

I bought one of these right away. Very cool to keep me organized in my closet. I hadn't realized it but I had been looking for something like this for a long time! Way to go WeekDate.

It's great for jotting down quick notes about what I wore recently. Love it. Finally a great idea in the closet.
