Storing Out of Season Clothing

Out of season clothing can take up a lot of space in your dresser drawers. Storing seasonally inappropriate clothing can help free up space, and make the current season's clothing more accessible. This guide is about storing out of season clothing.

Save space and view clothes easily by using vacuum bags that come in multiple sizes. Take clean folded clothes and place in vacuum bags then just suck out the air with a vacuum cleaner. It's fun to see the big pile of clothes just shrink to 1/4 its size.

My daughter and I just went through this the other day. All her clothes were in a jumble all over the floor. We took them all out and put them on the bed. Then, we sorted through them. The long sleeved shirts, jeans, and dresses went into her closet on hangers. The short sleeved shirts and "little" clothes: i.e. socks, underthings, went into the dresser. The summery things all went into a tote that is now up on the shelf of her closet to keep for next warm season. If we get some warmer than now weather soon, the summery type clothes are still within easy reach, but they are not cluttering up the room or the dresser.

I don't have as many clothes as my daughter, so my summery type clothes are in the bottom drawer of my dresser and in the drawer right next to it are my autumn knit tops and just on top of that drawer are my winter sweaters. My long sleeved shirts, pants, and dresses are all hung in my closet.

At the end of each season, I make sure all the clothes of that season and washed, you don't have to iron any that usually iron, but they must be clean. I fold everything neatly and put in a large tote (or size needed) and store in my laundry room. Or anywhere you have room for it.

To store my out of season clothing, I purchased sturdy suitcases and store my out of season clothing in them. I add a fabric softner sheet inside the suitcases. I then store the suitcase under the bed or in an extra closet.

When I change seasons in our kids' closets, I pack up the clothes in a Rubbermaid container and mark the size and gender. When the next season comes around, I can either pass them down or sell them.

Use one of those storage boxes that can fit under your bed. I store out of season clothing there. Right now summer pajamas, shorts, short sleeve jerseys, bathing suits are stored in it.
