Prepare Your Closet for Summer

Are you looking for a way to clean out your closet for the summer season? If so, you have probably seen just how quickly any closet area can devolve into a mess. This is not something that needs to be intimidating, as there are a few tips you can follow to quickly organize your summer closet and defeat the clothing monster you see on the floor in front of you. Take a look at what you need to do to get your closet and wardrobe ready for summer.

Take Everything Out

Most closets can be cramped and the lighting in here can be a bit dim. Start by taking everything out of your closet and laying it on the floor of your bedroom. Now you will have an easier time figuring out what to keep in the closet and what to move or get rid of. If the clothing is not fit for the season, remove it from the closet and place it somewhere else. You will be left with only the outfits and items you want to put back into the closet.

Launder Everything

Next, you should wash everything before you organize it. If your closet is a mess, there is a good chance that the clothes need to be cleaned. Be sure to remember which pile is going back into the closet and which pile will be going somewhere else. Regardless of if you will be storing clothing away for another season or hanging it back up in the closet to use during summer, it will be nice to know that everything is fresh. You can get creative and use a fun “summery” scent like orange blossom or lavender on your curated summer wardrobe.

Decide What To Fold Vs Hang

Now, with the summer pile of clothes in front of you, you need to decide what to fold and what to hang. You might want to count the number of hangers you have in your closet ahead of time. This will make it easier for you to figure out how much space you have to work with. For example, you might want to fold your t-shirts and jeans. On the other hand, if you have dresses, suits, sport coats, or even ties, you might want to place these on a hanger. You might be able to fit multiple ties on the same hanger to save space. Think about where your shoes will go. You don’t want to hang something over your shoes that will block them from view.
