Now that the temperature has dropped it doesn’t mean that you should forget all about the clothes you wear during spring or summer. It’s the perfect opportunity to organise your summer clothes and make sure they are ready to rock as soon as summer and the sun hits our shores again.
Our wardrobes tend to be constantly changing with the seasons, and if you’re like me it tends to be a big mess all year round. Finding a particular piece of clothing can sometimes be a real mission because it’s buried under a mountain of clothes from the last season! Well, it really shouldn’t be like that, should it? So how do you get sorted and make sure you clothes are neatly stored away for when you need them next year?
Think before you get started
Before you start ripping through the storage process and piling everything into the bottom draw or in to a container, think about any pieces you don’t want to keep. There are surely some that aren’t of any use? These items you can get rid of straight away – donate them to charity, give them to friends or if they are too badly damaged throw them away. Don’t be too sentimental, because you will always be able to buy the latest new trends at great discounts with groupon next summer.
You should try to do your organising as soon and as early as you possibly can. Try to get ready close to the end of the season. Get rid of those things that don’t fit and sperating everything into what you need now and what you need next year.
The best way by far to store clothes until next year is in plastic containers with labels on them – of course you can label the draws or sections or your hanging rail if you don’t use containers. You won’t need shorts during christmas, so you can keep a separate container just for the them, the same goes with this string vest that certainly have no place at winter time! If you are lucky enough to have a big dresser you might even be able to have it specifically laid out for your summer gear and then swap it over with the winter gear when the time comes.
It’s always good to get organised, you will be surprised how easier it becomes to find clothes and also how much you will de clutter your room!
We’ve been wearing shoes for most of our lives so it seems like quite a straight forward thing to do when it comes to finding the right pair. With so many choices now on the market selecting the best shoe out there for ourselves is not such a simple task anymore.
There are now various different options of special footwear for a range of activities, new technology is also shaping the way shoes are designed, production methods and materials are constantly changing, so knowing what to look for has never been more important.
Here are some really simple yet effective ideas that will help you make sure that you choose the best shoe for what ever your needs are. We would love to hear how you choose your shoes, what little tips do you have for the rest of the community here? All you have to do is put your thoughts in the comment section below this post, I am really looking forward to reading them and hopefully picking up some super tips.
The last pair I bought were a the awesome Timberland Mens 6 Inch Premium Boots, i bought them online which was so easy. If you’re looking for the best selection at the best rates then check out Get The Label. Here are the steps I always follow when choosing a new pair of shoes:
1) When and why will you be wearing them?
This has to be the first question you need to ask yourself because we need different shoes for different activities. Some shoes are multi purpose, so if you’re looking for just one pair consider what pair will work best for all the things that you will be doing. Here are the main types of shoes for different occasions/activities; Hiking, Cold-weather outdoor activities, Athletic shoes and dress shoes.
2) Get properly measured
Having your feet measured correctly can be the difference between your shoes feeling good and your shoes feeling amazing! You nee to look at the width and length of each foot – sometimes it is the case that your feet will not be the same so you need to take that into consideration when buying your shoes.
3) Cheaper is not always better
You should not let price make the decision for you, shoes are something that wear regularly and possibly more than any other item of clothing. Cheap shoes might not last for very long which will mean that you have to keep buying new shoes. An expensive, properly made shoe is well worth the investment – for shoes you really do get what you pay for.
