It’s that time of year again- that time where you start to assess your inventory of clothing and decide to put away into storage the heavy coats, sweaters, jackets, gloves, hats, etc. It may be a tedious chore, but it’s one that is necessary to keep your closets in check and enable you to evaluate the totality of your wardrobe options. So when it comes to organizing out of season clothes, here are some tips on how / where to store them!
How to Store Out of Season Clothes
Think outside your bedroom. You may feel like your bedroom is the most logical place for clothing, but it doesn’t have to be the only place you store out-of-season clothes. Consider a decorative storage ottoman, like this one below! You can even store it in your living room or family room, and keep some out-of-season clothes inside.
People sometimes forget how much room there is underneath a bed. There is plenty of room for under-bed storage pieces like these below. These are perfect for items you won’t need for a few more months.
Of course we all know how helpful these large plastic storage bins are! They are a staple for storing stuff for several months! You could place these in an attic, basement, crawlspace, or shed. If you want to make sure your clothes come out of storage looking good, be sure to place them inside only after they have been washed and fully dried. Consider placing some moth balls inside as well to deter pests.
Another clever idea is to use your suitcases and luggage pieces to hold your clothing items. Wherever you’re storing your suitcases, simply pop inside some clothes that you won’t need for a while. And that’s it!
