Seasonal Clothing Storage

With four children and two adults, keeping clothes organized must start with a plan. As seasons change clothes need to be rotated out, handed down and donated. We start by pulling out the storage unit housing the new seasons clothes. We take out the new seasons clothes….

In order to make room for the last seasons clothes. We have removed all of the winter clothes, tidied the storage bin and are ready to add the summer clothes.

I go through the clothes to remove outgrown clothes. Those items are sorted into two piles, one for hand me downs and one for donations. After that’s all sorted the hangers are removed, clothes folded and neatly packed away.

Next summer these clothes will be waiting neat and organized. If I were a super mom I would make a list of items that should be replenished next summer, however I wait until the season returns and compile a list as I unpack.

Finally, these clothes are stored in the attic until their season returns. I’d love to hear how you organize out of season clothes. Do you just leave them in the drawers and closets or pack them away?
