Turtleneck season is over! Time to get all of your winter clothing out of your closet and into storage. A closet clean-out is in order. Take some time this week to bring in your spring and summer clothing. When your closet is organized and it’s easy to find the right clothing your day will start off beautifully!
Here are some quick tips to get you started:
- Remove all heavy weight clothing from your closet.
- Inspect each item, looking for stains, tears, hems that are pulled. Take any items needing attention to the dry cleaner or seamstress before storing. You want to store clean, fresh clothing.
- Store off-season clothing in a guest room closet or in garbage bags or storage bins. If you don’t have storage bins consider sliding bins or bags of clothing under your bed until you need them again. Some bins are shaped just to fit under beds.
- Inspect all spring and summer clothing for stains, tears, hems that need mending. Launder all the clothing so your closet is full of clean clothes.
- Before moving in your clothes, consider giving your closet a good cleaning as well. Vacuum and dust all the corners and even your shoes! they can become dusty if not worn often.
- Consider investing in the felt hangers that are all the rage today. You can find them at TJMaxx and Marshalls and any large home retailer like Bed Bath & Beyond. They hold clothing well so that it won’t slip and they are slim, allowing you to fit the most clothing in without hangers adding bulk. They also come in fun colors which makes hanging your clothing a bit more fun.
- Lastly, move in the newly laundered, pressed, tailored and dry cleaned wardrobe into your clean closet and enjoy!
If you don’t have time or find yourself stressed out, consider hiring a me to come and do it with you or for you! As we are putting your clothing back into your closet we can even coordinate your clothing in new ways to make your wardrobe seem new! -Meredith
