Goal

You’ve finished your class. Now it’s time to practise. Complete these exercises in the next few days to practise what you’ve learnt in this lesson.


  1. Read the text about different ways to organise your closet. Then answer the questions in your notebook.

The Rule of Threes

Do you usually wake up, open your closet and spend hours before deciding what to wear? If so, the reason is simple: your closet needs organising. There are many ways to simplify your closet, and simplify your life. 

One of them comes from the school of Marie Kondo, book author, and Netflix star: Does the item you’re touching give you joy? If the item you are touching makes you feel excited to wear, then you should keep it. If it doesn’t make you feel anything, then you should discard it. 

A more rational way of simplifying your closet comes from Nikki Boyd, the author of “Beautifully Organized.” She recommends starting by organising your closet by category — tops, bottoms, etc — then organising each category by color. “You’re able to see things like, ‘Why do I have 20 black shirts?’” she says.

From there, Ms. Boyd suggests setting some rules. For example: No more than three of anything, including black shirts. If you have more than three similar items, you should discard some of them.

A third way of organising your closet is by doing the complete opposite. Richard Branson, for example, doesn’t need much closet space: His wardrobe consists of a couple pairs of jeans and a few white shirts.

“I just wear the same pair of jeans every day,” the British billionaire entrepreneur told Page Six. “Whatever I’m doing, whether it’s a speech, whether it’s going to see the Queen, you know, whatever it is.”

All that is left now is to choose the method you found more useful, open your closet, and get to work.

  1. How many different ways of organising your closet does the text mention?
  2. What does Marie Kondo do?
  3. In the second method, what 2 aspects do you have to take into account?
  4. How would you describe Richard Branson’s style?

2. What clothes do you usually wear in these situations? Write the answers in your notebook.

  1. a wedding
  2. work/school
  3. hanging out at home
