We all know the feeling: You have too many clothes to even fit in your closet, yet you never have anything to wear. And as paradoxical as it seems, it actually makes sense -- when your closet is crowded with things that no longer fit your size or taste, the extra clutter can keep you from making the most of the clothing you do wear and enjoy.
