Storing Out of Season Clothing
Yea the weather is getting warmer and I love when we get to change out our closets from Winter to Summer. It always feels like I have a new wardrobe. As we are bringing out our summer clothes and putting away our bulky sweaters, take a minute to think about the best place to store your unused items. Make sure your clothes are clean because insects will be even more attracted to the smell of food or perspiration mixed with their favorite synthetic fabric.
If you do have the closet space, consider having your hanging items enclosed in a wardrobe bag like this. Dream on!!!!!
Storage bags like this are a great option because they have a cedar insert which repels moths and other unwanted critters but I like that there’s still a little window to see the contents.
I loved this box because it is just the right size for all those boots. My mom is constantly on the hunt for boxes because she thinks they’ll always come in handy. This trait has begrudgingly been passed down to me so I try to save boot boxes when I buy the boots but plastic will keep every element and insect out much better than that cardboard if you’re storing your boots/shoes in a less than ideal place.
If you have the space or HATE ironing as much as I do, I’d recommend giving all your items enough space in their containers so they’re not crushed when you reopen them (unless you want to wash them again- maybe not a bad idea).
If you don’t mind ironing, like a certain mother of mine who irons the sheets… I love the idea of space bags!! These are from the Target website.
I read somewhere that if you use cedar products, they should be replaced every 3 months. I’m not sure how absolute that rule is but if you know or have other storage tips, please share below!
