You know you have too many clothes when you need more than 2 wardrobes- but it’s not something to be ashamed of. People can be interested in so many things and sometimes it’s the passion of collecting fashionable clothing and the desire to have a giant closet full of all the things you love.
It’s worth noting that there is a huge difference between being a collector and becoming a hoarder. Some people may tend to make the lines blurry between the two but there is an undeniable disparity from carefully curating things to randomly keeping “stuff”. We have discussed collecting vs hoarding in one of our previous blogs and we have also talked about how to store collections such as fine art, toys and antique furniture.
Today, we will be sharing some tips on how to store your well-loved clothes inside your storage units whether you’re keeping them for a wardrobe upgrade or setting them aside for future donations.
We can’t stress enough how helpful it is to categorize your clothes. This can be in many ways, such as categorizing per outfit, function, color, or by season. Learning to segregate your clothes this way will make it easier for you to stay organized and on top of your belongings. It will also be more convenient for you to look for a certain clothing item and pick out an outfit for a week.
Apart from these, it will be simpler to create and keep an inventory of your clothes when you start to organize it per category.
Utilize Vacuum Sealer Bags The Smart Way
Vacuum sealing fabrics may have earned a bad reputation due to the risk of permanent creasing and damage. But when you use it the right way, it can prove beneficial.
When you want to save space especially in storing seasonal clothing, vacuum sealer bags are the way to go. This is especially helpful when you decide to move and the number of clothes you have can pose as a challenge. However, it is not recommended to store your clothes inside vacuum seals for longer than 6 months since most fabrics such as cotton need air to maintain its structure.
Clothes are best kept at a cool, dry place away from sunlight, heat, and humidity. Climate-controlled storage units are perfect for storing your clothing collection as well as in making sure that their quality is kept in the right conditions. You’ll rest assured that your collection is properly stored and you don’t run the risk of damage or loss.
