If you skipped spring-cleaning this year, you might be noticing the effects as summer begins to creep up on us. It will be here before you know it, which means it’s time to get in gear. Living in the Henderson and Las Vegas area, we are lucky enough to experience summer weather all year long. However, before you know it, the desert heat will be here and you’ll wish your organizing had been done on cooler days. Don’t worry; you still have a chance to ready your closet storage for the season before the heat sets in! As your local closet experts, we’re here to share some tips.
Purge, Purge, Purge!
If you don’t use it, get rid of it. No one wants unnecessary items taking up valuable closet space. Purging unused items is synonymous for good closet storage. A good rule to go by is if you haven’t worn an article of clothing in a year, you probably aren’t going to. Consider donating your unwanted items to a local charity.
Make sure your closet storage space is being used wisely. Now is a good time to put away anything you won’t be using for a few months, as well as make sure the things you will need are accessible. This applies to your wardrobe as well as other items, such as sports equipment or holiday decorations that are out of season. There are a few different areas that are good for storing out of season items without taking up space in your closet. Bins that can be stored under the bed are a popular option, as are storing things in boxes in the garage if you have the space.
It can be helpful to go through and make a list of items you know you’ll need for the summer. That way you can make sure they are accessible and that they don’t accidentally end up in a box in the garage. You don’t want to have to go digging through bins and boxes searching for your bedroom fan, undoing all the hard work you put into organizing in the first place. Designate shelves in your closet for the everyday items to allow quick and easy access.
