Got a lot of clothes, and don’t know how to organize them?
A lot of people are in this situation. They have a lot of clothes lying on floors and stuffed in wardrobes. It’s problematic. Especially when season changes come along, when they must change your wardrobe… If you’re suffering from organization problems, then no worries. There is a way you can organize your wardrobe for effective storage. Below, we’ll provide you a list of things to do for your next wardrobe change. You won’t have to apply it often, unless you’re really into clothes shopping!
(1) Remove All Items From Your Wardrobe.
Your wardrobe is clogged with items. So the 1st thing you must do is take out all wardrobe items. Lay them out on bed, or on your bedroom floor. Make sure you properly clear out your wardrobe, as the next step involves organization…
(2) Get a Big Bag – Put in it Clothes You Don’t Use.
By don’t use, we mean stuff you wear once every few weeks. Because if you’re not wearing something, why keep it around? It’s taking up too much space. And you’d rather sell it or store it aside for someone else… Exceptions to that rule would be clothes for occasions. So suits that you can wear to a celebration. Or, classy clothes for high-end meetings.
Keep those aside.
Other Stuff You Don’t Need.
You probably don’t need items that you have outgrown. You might have a few shirts or pants that are too small for you. In that case, dump them into the bag, as you won’t need them.
Or, maybe you have items that are too big for you. You may have gone on a diet recently, downsizing through all your clothes! In that case, those items also go into that bag. Unless you’re willing to tailor them for size, where you should keep them aside instead.
Close the Bag (For Now).
You’ll be adding stuff into that bag later. So close it for now, and mark it as “unwanted clothes.”
(2) Organize the Rest of the Items.
The remaining items are probably things you want. Here, we recommend you organize them into a separate “seasons” bag for those items.
Keep summer and spring items together. Add them into a “summer/spring bag.” Do the same with winter/autumn items, and get a “winter/autumn bag” for them. So now, you’ve effectively organized your clothes by season.
Add in the New Season Items – In Organized Manner.
Don’t just throw items into your wardrobe. Lay out everything neatly. This ensures that you don’t have to do wardrobe cleanups often!
Store Away the “Old Season” and “Unwanted Items” Bag.
For example, if summer or spring are coming up, store away winter and autumn items. Only keep aside summer and spring clothes. If winter or autumn are coming up, store away summer and spring items.
You’ll be storing aside the “unwanted clothes” bag with the out of season items too. For storage, you’ll need a large space to put the items in. If you have an extra un-used room in your home, you can use that. But if you don’t, then you should consider the use of a storage unit.
As an individual, you may not have that many clothes. But if you’re living with a family, you have a problem. You see, you’ll need to manage their wardrobes too. They’ll need to swap out seasonal clothes! And where will you put their bags of old season clothes? Are you going to put them into a garage? Definitely not. You should put them into a large enough room to store your items. And this is where you look for a storage unit.
Rent out one, and store your items in them.
Storage Units – A Necessity Not Just for Clothes.
They can store a variety of items too! They can store boxes of old equipment that you’re not using. They can store items that you need for future use, but have no space for. You can also add in there items that you plan on selling later. With a storage unit, you gain a lot of convenient space for storage!
So Where Do I Find a Storage Unit.
Storage units are almost everywhere. So you’ve got to pick the units you rent wisely. We recommend you look for a unit in close proximity to your home. To do that, ask a friend or family for recommendations…
Or, you can go online, and search storage units near you. This should give you a variety of addresses of rental units close to your location!
