Out of season clothes

Depending on where you live, your wardrobe may change drastically as the seasons change. For some people, their closet situation could be in disarray because they don’t know what to do with out of season clothes. To help those of you out who struggle with this, here are five tips on storing out of season clothes.

1. Always clean wardrobe before storing them long term

It’s safe to assume that most people know that they shouldn’t store dirty clothes long term. When it comes to wardrobe that isn’t cleaned often like a thick winter jacket, it can be easy to overlook that these items can be filled with stains and dirt that aren’t noticeable at a quick glance. Even if you think everything is clean, it is better to be safe than sorry and clean them again before setting them aside for storage. If you don’t clean them, stains can darken and removing them will become more challenging.

2. Avoid cardboard boxes

Cardboard boxes are the go-to option when people want to store something long term. Other than moving, you should never store clothes in a cardboard box. If they get wet, it will lead to mildew. Cardboard boxes will also do a terrible job of keeping bugs from getting into your clothes. Instead, opt for plastic containers with a lid which are easy to obtain and won’t cost much.

3. Use a garment rack with a built-in cover for hanging items

For delicate items like dresses and suits, you are going to want to give them a bit more attention than simply folding them into a container. Instead, invest in a garment rack with a built-in cover. This will allow you to keep those items hung and safe from dust and bugs. While something like this might sound expensive, they are fairly cheap and can be placed just about anywhere.

4. When space is at a premium, vacuum seal your wardrobe

Vacuum sealing your wardrobe will suck the air out and reduce the size to a fraction of the initial volume. That is great for those who are unsure what to do with items they have no intention to use and don’t have the space to keep them in the closet. Vacuum sealing wardrobe also gives you the benefit of protection from dust and moisture. The downside of vacuum sealing for an extended period of time is that some items made of natural fibers like cotton need air to retain its shape. So, unless you have to, it may be best not to vacuum seal.

5. Store in a cool, dry place

Avoid storing out of season clothes somewhere that gets a lot of sunlight or is prone to moisture. While the garage or attic is a great spot in theory, they are not ideal for clothes. Better storage locations would be a spare linen closet, the top shelf of your bedroom closet, or under the bed.

Properly storing clothes that are out of season will keep them in pristine condition and help keep your main closet clean and organized. For more home organization inspiration, visit our blog and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.

Organizing a closet is important, no matter what size it is. But if you have a small closet, organizing it is even more important than ever. Below are five tips that you can use for organizing your small closet.

1. Declutter

If you’re saving every single shirt or pair of pants you’ve bought, and your closet is small, it’s not going to matter if you are organized. Your closet is going to look like a mess. You want to declutter your closet and get rid of the things that you don’t wear anymore.

2. Use the Right Hangers

There are a lot of different types of hangers in all types of styles, sizes and shapes. If you use many different types, it can ruin your organization. Even though they don’t have to match, they should be similar in type and size. You also want to hang them all uniform and hanging the same way.

In addition, large shirts that are draped on small hangers are going to wrinkle easier. Hangers that are at different heights also can make it harder for getting the clothes out. So you want to choose one of the basic hangers and a bar. This way they will work for blouses, skirts and pants.

3. Don’t Try Cramming all of the Clothes in Your Closet

It will be hard to organize your clothes in a closet that is small. But if you’re dealing with your daily clothes along with your winter clothes, summer clothes, dressy clothes, and everything else, you’re going to go nuts. So you want to rotate what you wear based on the weather. Think about what you’re going to be wearing the most and hang that up, then put the others on a shelf or on the floor in a box.

4. Don’t Buy a lot of Organization Products

Bins, dividers and storage boxes are often helpful when you’re organizing a closet. However, there is a limit to how useful they are. They also can take up space themselves. If you are depending on your organizers to do the work, you’ll be very disappointed, and your closet will be unnecessarily cluttered. You should stick with items that are space saving. Things like smaller belt holders, flat dividers for shelves and things like that.

5. Have a System

If you have a small closet, it’s possible that you’ll think that it won’t be a problem to easily find items even if you don’t have them organized. But nothing is further from the truth. You can easily lose items. So you want to sort the clothes by the type of item and the types by their color.

These are the things that you can do to organize your closet even when it’s small. You’ll find that your clothes are looking better and you’re finding them a lot easier.
