CONTINUED FROM PART 1
So, after sorting everything into piles of size and season (ie: 6-9 months winter clothing), it was time to pack everything up to store in the attic. If you don’t have an attic or basement with ample storage space, my system may not work for you, but I’m sure it can be adapted to work on a smaller scale.
I started with a large plastic tub, and some space bags. I’m not sure if the space bags really conserve space, but I had them, so I used them. Each bag was packed with clothing from a specific size range/season and labeled accordingly.
The ziploc bags were perfect for storing and labeling smaller items, like shoes and socks.
The tub is about half full of 6-12 month items. Since we’re still in some 12-18 month clothing, I put the latest outgrown items in the smaller plastic containers for closet storage until later. I think at this rate, I can use the same tub to store all of his 6-18 month stuff. 🙂
Now the closet is all cleaned out, and I’ve started making a list of items that we need for this summer. Mostly shorts and sandals. I think we’re good on t-shirts. Maybe another pair or two of PJs.
Ahhh…look at all of that empty space. So refreshing!!
