Space Treat: Your Self-Editing Summer WardrobeBy
Summer seemed to really sneak up on me this year. How about you? I just managed to squeeze out a few hours to edit and organize my Summer wardrobe but if you didn't have time this year, just follow the two tips below.
#1 - Place all your hangers backwards on the rod, so that the hanger is hooked from the back to the front, open side facing out. As for your drawers and shelving, traditionally when you fold your shirts, you keep the "belly" part of the fold facing towards you, when you put your Summer shirts in now, arrange them so that the "neck" is facing out. When Summer is over, any clothing that you haven't worn will still be hanging in the backwards direction or arranged "neck" forward in the drawer. When Fall rolls around, you'll know exactly what you don't need to keep for next Summer. Let it go and donate it.
#2 - Keep a large shopping bag inside the closet, as you try on clothes throughout the Summer and discover that they don't fit or are outdated, just drop them in the bag. When Fall arrives you'll have a bag for donation as well as a fully "edited" Summer wardrobe for next year!
