I am loving the Spring Weather that has finally made its way back to Kansas this past weekend. It gave me the final push of motivation to actually pull all of my spring clothes officially out of storage and pack the winter clothes away. It is always a full morning or afternoons job, but I feel so much better once it is done. I didn’t get any pictures of my method, but I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learned over the years to make the packing and unpacking of seasonal clothes easier.
The first thing I always do is I pull the new seasons of clothes out of storage and place them in neat stacks on my bed, I then take all of the old seasons clothes and sort through what I know I’ll want for the next year packing it away and creating a pile of items that didn’t get worn a lot in a bag to donate. I always keep a 3-4 pieces from the previous season out just in case the weather decides to go backwards again, but other than those few pieces, it all gets placed away in either bins or this old dresser in my storage room. Now for all the new clothes, this is the fun part! I choose a stack and start putting things away where I like to keep them, keeping similar things in the same area to make it easier to categorize them. Once again I pull out any pieces that I don’t think that I will wear and place them in the donate bag. Any pieces that I am on the fence about whether they will actually get worn or not I put up in my hanger with the hanger backwards facing me instead of away from me. If I reach the end of the season and the hanger is still backwards I’ll know that the item was never worn and can be donated.
What are some of your tips for organizing your closet and surviving the transition between seasons? Comment below or shoot me an email with them, I always love to get new ideas to make the transition smoother!
P.S. Isn’t this shirt just darling? It can also be worn as a one shoulder, off the shoulders or strapless!
