Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year. and I'm definitely missing fall in the Pacific Northwest ( minus the rain!)  I love the change of seasons and shopping for a new wardrobe. The start of a new season is the perfect time to work on your closet and prepare your clothing for the upcoming weather etc.

Packing Tips

To get started find a system for organizing clothing by each season and by family members. Next, be sure to launder or dry clean seasonal clothing before packing. It's best to create piles of like items and pick a plastic container or carboard box the size of the pile. Some items should be hung in breathable garment bags. Make sure the clothing has enough room in the bag to breathe to avoid mold and mildew damage.

Discard unused clothing as much as possible to avoid packing away more than necessary. Anything you haven't worn in a year, donate it to your local thrift store. Be careful about using mothballs; they can be 

Hire a Professional Packer

If you don't have time or energy to pack seasonal stuff yourself, hire professional packers and sit back while its packed to perfection. Hiring professionals can be a scary task however the outcome can outweigh the fear. 

Having professionals to do the heavy lifting, assist in packing breakables can help manage your anxiety, stress and overall health when it comes time to make the big leap. Your biggest hassle is finding professional and reliable workers to do so.

Closet Temperature Control

Controlling the temperature in your closet for each season can get tricky; especially in locations with extreme temperatures. Auto dry boxes work great for storing clothing items sensitive to temperature fluctuations.  In more temperate climates, a window in the closet is great or a fan.

 A dry, cool and dark environment is the best for your wardrobe.  Don't store your clothing in a garage or attic, as these environments are susceptible to extreme temperature changes.

Store Clothing at Offsite Facilities

If your current closet isn't large enough to accommodate storage; consider storing your items at a spacious, temperature controlled facility. Plastic bins and cardboard boxes work best for storage units. Be sure to create an inventory system to help remember which clothing you took to storage.

Find a Home with a Bigger Closet

If you are a fashionista, having a bigger closet is always a dream! Unfortunately not everyone is in the market for a new home. If you can afford to upgrade to a different home with a humongous closet, then by all means DO IT!  If not, check out ways you can make your current closet work more to your advantage. Perhaps a remodel would work for your situation.
