Storing Out of Season Clothes
Sherry Tyra, a home design expert, shows you how to easily store your off season clothes. Be sure to watch the related videos for more home organizing tips.
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. This works good for me and I paid very little for the suitcases at yardsales and some I recieved from family when they were updating thier traveling supplies.
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. I'm sure you get the picture.
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.
