Finding what you need in your Closet-When you need it!
If you keep your closet organized by season, you’ve moved back or put away the summer stuff and have fall/winter clothes easily accessible in your closet–right? The problem then is, how do you know where everything is when you need to pack for a vacation? This is another reason why it is so important to look over your entire wardrobe every season. If you have too much to look through, it becomes a daunting task. However, if you keep only what you’re currently wearing, you can get through it quickly. The better organized your clothes are when you “seasonize” your closet, the easier it is to find exactly what your looking for when you’re packing. A few things you may want to consider:
- When putting away summer clothes, think “vacation” and pack a box that has all the items you’d want to take with you. Example: favorite shorts, swim suit, several summer shirts, sandals, etc.
- If you store off-season items in boxes, label them with what’s inside. You can be as general as “shorts” or as specific as having an entire list on the outside of the box.
- Have you had something in your closet FOREVER because it has sentimental value? Box it up and store it as “Keepsake Clothes”. Closet space should be reserved for things you currently wear, especially when space is limited.
Again, the more time you take to organize your clothes now, the easier it will be when it comes time to pack for a trip. As you know, Chaos to Order is always here to help you through the closet organizing process!
