Now that summer is here, it’s time to make sure you know where all your warm weather clothes are! The days have gotten much hotter, making it necessary to wear clothes that will keep you cool. The problem is, you may not know where these clothes are when it’s time to get dressed.
Here are some tips that will help you get your closet ready for summer:
Get Rid of Items You Don’t Want
Before you reorganize your closet, you should take inventory of what you have so that you can find some things to give away. This will help free up even more space for your summer clothes! Get rid of both winter and summer clothes that may not fit, are in disrepair, or that you simply don’t like anymore. After you do that, you will also be able to see whether or not you need to buy more summer clothes. For instance, if you only have one pair of shorts after you’re done giving things away, you know that you will need to buy more.
Store Anything You Don’t Need
After you get rid of what you don’t want, the next step is to put anything in storage that you don’t need during the summer. There’s no reason for you to keep your cold weather wardrobe items accessible. Sure, you might occasionally need a sweater or light jacket, especially since it still gets cold at night, but you certainly don’t need your heavy winter coats. Storing those items away until next year is a great way to free up closet space.
Make Sure You Have Enough Space
Once you’re sure that your summer wardrobe is complete, your next step is to make sure you have enough space in your closet for it. If your closet is too small, it can certainly be frustrating. The good news is that there are things that you can do to increase your closet’s storage space. For instance, you can easily install a system that will allow you to store nearly twice as many things in your closet. Not only that, but if you’re really strapped for space you can always buy a freestanding wardrobe. This is also a good solution if your bedroom was never built with a closet. When you have plenty of space, it will make it much easier for you to find your summer clothes.
No matter which of these tips you use, you will be rewarded with a closet where all of your summer clothes are accessible. You will also have plenty of room in your closet to store whatever else you need! If you don’t have enough room, you may want to consider buying a special piece of furniture such as a wardrobe, dresser, or even a storage bed!
