With spring just a few weeks away, you should be transitioning out of winter wear and into breezier clothing. Start by storing the bulkiest stuff such as parkas, heavy sweaters, down jackets and clunky winter boots first, advises Livible. Keep a few versatile items handy for the transition to warmer temps — lighter-weight blazers, jackets and cotton sweaters that can be layered year-round. Look at the change in seasons as an opportunity to shed some stuff, the blog adds, “so give yourself a break and think about the transition from winter to spring as an opportunity to #declutter your closet.”
Sorting and storing clothing by season helps save space and can actually streamline one’s wardrobe, according to Apartment Therapy blogger Abby Stone. Since making a habit of going through her clothing regularly, she was able to keep only what works for a particular season on hand and at the ready, avoiding duplication and making it simpler to get dressed in the morning. With a single season’s clothing in the closet at any given time, Stone was able to eliminate an entire dresser’s worth of storage, saving space.
