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!
