Seasonal clothing swap

Please Add Photos <br> to your Gallery

Seasonal clothing swaps happen twice per year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Swapping out the clothes allows for extra closet and drawer space. It alleviates cramped spaces & clutter.  It’s also a great way to inventory what you have and what you need.

1. Empty Closets & Drawers

The first thing you need to do is take everything out of the closets & drawers. Place all of the items on the bed.

2. Sort

Next sort through each piece of clothing, one at a time. Create a (folded) pile for each type of clothing you are going to store away.

Ask yourself:

  • Does it fit?
  • Will you wear it again? (Would you purchase it today if it was in the store?)
  • Will you keep it, give it away or sell it?
  • Organize into the following piles.
  • Tops
  • Bottoms
  • Outerwear
  • Dress clothes
  • Pajamas
  • Swimwear


3. Donation Box

Place all of the clothing you are not going to keep, into a donation box. 

4. Too Big

If you have young children, organize and store “hand me downs” from older siblings. Designate a “bigger sizes” box to store clothes that don’t yet fit.

5. Seasonal Bins

Label seasonal bins to store out of season clothing & place them in the closet .

  • Tops
  • Bottoms
  • Outerwear (if out of season)
  • Dress Clothes
  • Pajamas
  • Swim Wear (if out of season)
