The colder season is upon us, which will make many reach for their cozy sweaters and boots to keep warm. Summer staples are also retiring until the fall season, as is the excitement for autumn activities. Use Greenbar Secure Storage in Redmond Oregon instead of stuffing clothes under your bed. This maximizes closet space and keeps your items looking great.
The Greenbar Secure Storage will assist you in organizing and transitioning your wardrobe. It will also provide much-needed refreshment until those sundresses and floppy hats are ready for the poolside.
Sort your Clothes
Start your transition by organizing your closet in three categories: year-round, cold weather, warm weather. You can quickly move items from your closet into your secure storage in Redmond Oregon by having separate sections.
Sun hats, dresses and swimwear are all good options for warm weather. Examples of cold weather clothing include boots, jackets and coats as well as snow gear and thick pants. Layerable items are those that can be worn year round, such as t-shirts, light sweaters and jeans, as well as dress clothes. To preserve their integrity, these items should be stored in the closet with delicate clothing like cashmere, lace, and embroidered pieces.
You should always have items that you can reach for no matter what season. You should also keep delicate clothing such as cashmere, lace and embroidered pieces in your closet. These items may not be wearable all year, but you will have greater control over how they are stored.
How to pack your Clothes the best
Plastic storage bins with tight-fitting lids are better than cardboard boxes to reduce the chance of mildew, mold and other pests damaging your items. Colored totes will look more uniform while clear bins can be used to identify contents. Bins that aren’t transparent can be used to organize your items quickly without opening every box.
Some items work best in bins, while others are better hung up. You can hang your items with cardboard wardrobe boxes. These boxes are available at most moving companies and home improvement stores. They have front access and a metal hang bar that is identical to the one in your closet. These boxes allow clothes to be seamlessly moved from your closet into the box and then off to your secure storage in Redmond Oregon.
- Dress pants
These items are more prone to wrinkles or can lose their shape if folded into a box. A covered rolling clothes rack may be the best choice for you if you want quick and easy access to your hanging objects or to see what’s inside. Although they can’t stack, clothing racks can be extended to allow for more clothing. They also have wheels that make it easy to transport.
Some items may lose their shape if they are hung up. For example, bulky sweaters can become unwearable due to their weight.
DO NOT hang:
- Khakis and denim pants
- Stretchy items
If you are short on space, vacuum sealed bags can be used to compress items. But you need to be careful about which pieces you include. The delicate fabrics like fur, wool and leather as well as fluffy items such insulated coats, can be crushed and may not return to their original form.
Preparation for the Transition
When packing clothing away for the season take the time to wash each item thoroughly and inspect for any snags or holes. It’s possible for invisible stains to oxidize and become permanent. This can make it unpleasant when your prize-winning holiday sweater is due to be returned.
Shoes also deserve attention and time. To ensure your shoes stay in shape, check for worn soles.
Reduce the size of your Wardrobe
This time can be used to reduce your wardrobe, get rid of things that haven’t been worn in a while, and also to clean out your closet. Set up a donation bin during your first clean-out and during every transition. It will save you time and allow you to give away some of your less worn items.
