Organizing your Clothes
We all have seasonal clothes. Seasonal clothes would be things we wear only in the summer, clothes we wear in the winter, and then holiday clothes. Organizing these items so they are readily available when the time comes to get them out can be a problem. Here are some tips that will help you get through this with ease.
If you can afford one and you have room, one idea is a second dresser. You can store this in a spare room, laundry room, or storage room. When summer time hits, you store all of your winter clothes in the spare dresser. When winter hits you store all your summer clothes in there. Now this won’t work for dresses and other items that should be hung, but it will work for pants, shirts, and skirts.
• Storage containers
Storage containers are great because they are easy to store and they are easy to see into. You can store these under the bed, the closet floor, or a shelf above your clothes in the closet. These also work well in store rooms, and spare rooms.
• Spare room
If you have a spare room or an office that has a closet, you can use the closet for your seasonal clothing. This makes a transfer easy because the items are already on hangers. It’s as simple as a swap or transfer. Of course this will mean you will need more hangers, but it will be worth it because you won’t have to use the iron on them.
• Storage bags
You can purchase storage bags online or in the store. These bags allow you to put a number of pieces in one bag, and then you seal them and use a vacuum to get all the air out. Not only does this save room, but it also protects your clothes.
• Bar storage
If you have room in your storage room, you can create a closet in a corner. Use 2×4’s and a bar and make your own. Then you can hang all your clothes on that and they will be out of the way, but you will have easy access to them.
• Plastic stand alone closet
You can purchase a plastic stand alone closet and put it in your storage room. These are designed for rooms that don’t have a closet. They have the bar across the top and the doors close like a regular closet. These work well for storing seasonal clothing.
Organizing your seasonal clothing is a great way to store your clothing and keep them nice and neat. These suggestions work well for children’s clothing. When you know you will need them later for your next child you can store them and they will be ready when you are.
These are just a few of the many options you have when it comes to organizing your clothes. You can also use some of these same suggestions with your shoes. Closets are a mess anyway. When you have your snow boots mixed in with your sandals, it can cause a headache when you are in a hurry and can’t find the right pair.
