This can be a grueling process, we have all been there. The buildup of winter clothes, your warm-weather attire buried under a pile, in drawers, or stored in the basement. Just thinking about going through it all and swapping it out is enough to make you break out in hives. But no worries. Today I’m sharing a few simple things that will make it a little easier.
First, go through all of the clothes currently in your closet and drawers. Get rid of things that no longer fit, are stained or you just don’t want. That will decrease the amount you need to switch over – at least by a little bit. If you’re anything like me, you are going to buy more for next winter anyway. This will just give you a valid excuse to do so.
Once you’ve gotten rid of the things you won’t be keeping, remove all of the clothing that you won’t wear in spring (and summer) and put it to the side – somewhere out of the way for the time being.
Now it’s time to bring in the warmer-weather clothes. Gather them from wherever you might be storing them and start putting them into your closet and drawers. As you arrange these things in your closet, go through them just like you did the winter attire. Get rid of things that maybe you don’t like anymore, things that don’t fit, or you just don’t want. I know I have a ton of things I bought a long time ago that are no longer my style. If you haven’t worn something in two years, why on earth do you still have it?! You most likely won’t be wearing it ever again so into the get rid of pile it goes. And, bonus, there are a lot of sites and apps, like thredUP, that you can use to sell clothing, making yourself a little bit of money.
Arrange the spring and summer clothes that you want to keep and take inventory. What do you need to add to your collection? These are items that you should keep an eye out for when sales hit. The things I normally need to replace are tank tops because I wear them so often.
So, are you ready to jump in and get to organizing your closet for spring? I’m actually looking forward to it as a fresh start for my spring and summer wardrobe!
