Nobody likes a cluttered home.

When our space feels cluttered and chaotic, our lives often do, too.

A woman named Barbara Costello, known by her TikTok alias @Brunchwithbabs, has amassed a following of almost two million users on TikTok thanks to her wisdom and lifehacks.

She has become known as the grandmother of the internet.

In a recent clip, she shared her closet decluttering trick — and it’s super easy.

“Did your mom ever tell you there’s a quiz you can take to decide if it’s time to gift some clothes?” she said.

We all have dresses and blouses in our closet that we don’t want to give up because we feel like we’re going to need them for a special occasion soon.

However, often that special occasion never comes and we just waste valuable space.

“Not sure if I want to gift this item or not? This is how you take the test.”

Instead of placing the hanging item in the closet with the hook facing inside like the rest of the clothes, Babs turned the hook and hung it opposite all other items.

“And until I wear it, it stays that way.”

That way, it’s easy to tell the garment apart from everything else in the closet and know if you’ve actually used it.

“But if I wear it, then I hang it up right when it’s time to hang it up because it’s a keeper.”

If the item is still wrong after a few months, she gives it away.

As always, her followers were grateful for the advice:

“Once again, Babs comes through with the innovation,” one person wrote.

“I will do it!” added another.
