Do you and your Husband argue over the closets, or lack of storage?
Does he ask you why you are going shopping when he insists you have enough shoes…….
Below are a few helpful hints to begin:
- It’s not in season – If so, it’s better not to mix it in with your workable wardrobe. Store it. If you don’t have an extra closet, you can buy a portable wardrobe container or a rolling rack that can be covered. Scrambling through heavy woolens in the summer or sheer linens in the winter is distracting when you’re rushing to get dressed.
- You haven’t worn it for a year or more – It may be good candidate for donation or resale at a consignment shop. If you don’t remember if you’ve worn it in the past year, here’s a tip: Hang every garment facing the same direction. After a year, you should be suspicious of anything not facing the opposite direction. You can then decide if you want to take it out of the lineup and release it, or continue to hold it captive. However, ask yourself why you haven’t worn it for that long. If its a special occasion piece that you rarely wear, could you find another storage for it?
- Maybe it’s out of date – Then it should be out the door – and if it has sentimental value, then pack it away….
- It’s stained, soiled and needing repair – place it in a large bag in your trunk of car and when you are out drop if off at the Dry Cleaners or Tailor.
