Streamline Your Closet Access by Rotating Your Wardrobe

The season is changing in Plainfield, NJ, with nasty winter weather fading away, and your closet has started to feel a bit stagnant. You want to update your wardrobe a la “out with the old, in with the new,” but you aren’t sure where to start. In the spirit of spring cleaning, Access Self Storage has compiled some tips to help you streamline your closet access by rotating your wardrobe.

Decluttering

Reduce the Wardrobe This Spring

Your first order of business should be to take inventory of what you did and did not wear this last summer season. With the exception of situation-specific attire, chances are there’s many articles you own but never wear on the regular. If it feels like any of the following are true of one of those articles, consider if you might be better off selling or donating it to improve organization:

  • Does it still represent who you are?
  • Is it out of style?
  • Is it practical paired with other clothing you own?
  • Is it too big or too small?
  • Do you simply not like that piece anymore?

Take anything that doesn’t pass your inspection to a local donation service, such as Goodwill, or sell it online for a little extra money.

Keep the Summer Clothes, Store the Rest

Whether it’s storage bins, hanging racks, or a custom-selected storage unit, you’ll create a summer wardrobe that’s easy to maintain simply by moving the unnecessary clothes out of the way. This organization makes your closet appear purposeful, represents your identity as you want, and is easy to maintain. Keep the boots and jackets out of sight; you won’t need them for a while.
