Doesn’t that sound awesome? A “new” wardrobe twice a year? Please note the quotation marks around the word “new”. Yeah, there is a catch. Figures, right? But, in my own little world, that is just what happens. I don’t have a walk-in closet and, to be honest, I have enough clothes that 3 women could easily share. My closet, though plenty large, cannot contain all of my clothes at once, so this is what I do:
By the way, that is my poor hubby’s small closet. Mine is about 4 times the size of his, yet he doesn’t complain. Good man.
Every spring as it starts to get cold I bring these bins out of the garage and pull out all of the clothes that I had packed away the previous fall. Out come all of my capris, shorts, short-sleeved tops, swimsuits and sandals… you get the idea. Come cooler weather, the same bins come back in for the great fall switcheroo. Out come the coats, jackets and sweatshirts,
the long-sleeved shirts,
the sweaters and long pants
and the scarfs, warm socks and boots
and I must say, it is just like getting a new wardrobe twice a year! I think that even if I did have a walk-in closet, I would still pack off-season items away. I mean, do I really want to see winter coats when the temperatures outside are hitting 115 degrees F? Emphatic, “No!”. Although I do keep a handful of short-sleeved tops in my closet to wear under sweaters and jackets, I don’t want to be taunted by a closet full of them all winter long, making me wish for warmer days.
Bottom line: I just got a “new” wardrobe last weekend and it didn’t cost me a dime!
How about you? Do you switch out your wardrobe, too?
