Getting Organized

I saw an article in a magazine recently with suggestions for organizing your closet. The article suggested that you put your jeans into different piles and then label each one. There was a picture of 4 piles of neatly folded jeans. Under the first one it said, "Skinny." The second was "Flare." The third was something like "Cargo." And I can't remember what the last one was. And I thought, "who has that many jeans??"
Here are the categories that I thought would be more useful:

Used to fit me 5 pounds ago Skinny Jeans

Jeans that show my undies when I sit down

Jeans that have holes

Jeans that have stains

Jeans that I actually wear

One lonely pair of jeans that actually get worn. And that's only on my "dress up" days.

I have jeans that fit when I put them on and stretch out later, jeans that I cannot breathe in til after noon but fit great later, jeans that will never again fit but I still have hope, and jeans that I love all the time and wear every day. 4 pair, exactly alike.

I just bought a new pair of ::::cringe:::: stretchy jeans from Walmart...replacing the pair that has gotten too stretched out and worn for "decent" wear...I bought them 5 or 6 years ago.

yup...that's about it :)

Does that person with the labels suggestions actually do her own laundry? Really?
