tips on packing up your seasonsal wardrobe

1 Comment

I had the chance to do a big purge before we moved. You know, tossing the things that I didn’t wear, or needed to stop wearing in the trash, donations bins and taking only what I wanted…but that was still a lot. Without a basement my closets were always packed to the brim with things I didn’t need right then and crowded my current season clothes. Living in Boston and Philadelphia I’ve done the small city apartments where you rent a storage unit, recruit friends to help carry things, rent a zipcar, try to find parking near your apartment and avoid meter maids…its the PITS.

If this is you check out, MakeSpace a great service to help you store your out of season stuff! There comes a point where you just can’t store out of season clothes at your parents house. MakeSpace actually comes to get your stuff and HAUL it away, HELLO closet space!

Tips on packing up your seasonal clothes (with or without MakeSpace):
1) Pack neatly because you’ll want to avoid the box in the future if you don’t!
2) Jot down on a piece of paper and tape on the outside or on the inside flap what’s in the box. Nothing worse than looking for those yellow shorts in a sea of bright summer clothes.
3) Think about what looks worn. Go ahead and toss it and look for sales at the end of season. It might be counter intuitive when you are packing but if your down jacket looks like its seen to many snow storms its a great chance to upgrade as stores try to move the seasonal clothes out.
