One of the things I have started to do as part of #adulting, is changing 过度 my fall\winter 衣柜 to spring\summer 和 vice-versa. I never used to see the value in doing this; it felt time-consuming 和 unimportant. However, my closet was starting to explode with clothes 而我当时正努力将时尚而又时髦的服装放在一起 seasonally 合适的（您曾经尝试过夏天穿衣服吗？ and all you can find are black jeans 和 grey sweaters?). Plus, my front hall closet was full of shoes, boots, jackets, scarves, 和 hats 所以我永远找不到想要的东西。时间到了，衣橱的变化需要发生。即使对于没有经历过四个季节的人来说，变色也总是很好的 – 根据我的消息来源，霓虹色并不是冬天的流行趋势。
该过程平均需要约2-3个专用小时才能完成衣柜转换（不算洗钱时间）。您还需要 一些大储物箱或拉锁节省空间的袋子， which are my preference, a space to keep off-season shoes 和 coats and to store the bins or bags (for me, that’s the basement). Another item that I am convinced is crucial for this 衣柜 转换， among other laundry tasks is my LG Styler which is available at 加拿大好市多 (the best part is you don’t even need to be a member to buy it). LG has sponsored this post, actually, 和 I am so glad they did. I’ve been using my LG Styler for a year now 和 using it makes me feel like the James Bond of 洗衣房. More on that shortly.
第1步– The Big Dump
Every. Single. Item. Comes out of my drawers 和 closets 和 goes onto my bed. I’m generally cranking music or a podcast to get through this task so that I am not visually distracted by the TV. I go on an ‘extreme dump out’ route because I use this as an opportunity to prune 一切。我会触摸所有的T恤衫，袜子，上衣，裤子等。如果我整个季节都没穿，那可能意味着我赢了’不要在下个季节穿它，所以我将其发送到捐赠（或托运）堆。这就是我喜欢这样做的另一个原因 twice a year – if I didn’t do this, my 衣柜 would be a nebulous mish-mash of clothing. This way is more definitive, either I wear it for the season or I don’t. That’s not to say certain things don’t stay in the closet or my drawers year round (e.g. light sweaters, tee shirts, jeans) but doing this still gives me the chance to evaluate each item 和 decide if it is 季节性地 appropriate 而如果 I still like it.
第2步– The Rose Ceremony
Each garment requires seconds of my time; I pick it up, think about the last time I wore it 而如果 it was comfortable 和 looked good. Then, I think about whether I’ll realistically wear it again next season. If so, it goes into the store pile (a.k.a. it gets a rose). If not, I place it in the donate or consign pile. I’ll consign items that are 在 more expensive side or items that are in near-perfect shape so I can at least recoup some cash for it 和 donate the rest. Anything that makes the cut for going back into the drawers 和 closet gets hung up or folded 和 put back.
第三步– The Clean Sweep
然后，我将检查每一项，并确定其是否足够干净以进行存储。我不想连续几个月存放有污渍或异味的东西，所以我将物品扔进洗衣堆中，用适当的去污剂和洗衣液处理。对于干净的物品，我还是喜欢给它们再洗一次再存放，以去除异味和过敏原， 这就是LG Styler的来源。我将这些物品放在LG Styler中，并将其设置为Sanitize 循环（在材料允许的情况下），在一两个小时内，由于TrueSteam®，物品散发出新鲜气味，并且不含过敏原 技术。实际上，LG Styler赢得了哮喘病&获得加拿大哮喘协会和Allergy Standards Ltd.颁发的抗过敏®证书，以表彰其在去除织物上的优异性能 over 99％的过敏原。而且在使用卫生周期时，它有助于减少衣服，床上用品，运动服中的家庭过敏原和尘螨。– even children’的毛绒玩具。这是长期保存衣服并确保我可以在以后的季节中穿着的好方法。一切清洁后，将其折叠起来并放入垃圾桶或真空密封的存储袋中。这是我不得不告别短裤，泳衣，罩衫和衣服的时候。至少它们的包装正确无误，而且我知道我会在短短几个月内再次看到它们。
第4步– The Unpacking Party
现在是乐趣的开始。拿起去年存放的箱子，把里面的东西放在床上。在这一点上，对每个项目进行排序，然后确定您是否仍然喜欢它，如果它仍然适合您， and if it stays with you. If you’re 过度 it or it doesn’t quite fit right, 那么您可以安全地将其放入捐赠或寄售堆中。您确实决定保留的所有物品–我发现已经装箱了一段时间的任何服装都可以保留–我想重新洗衣服。对于我的日常服装， 我只需将三个负载分开–白色，深色，颜色 – 和洗衣服。对于干净的精致物品，但只需要刷新或去皱，我将它们放在LG Styler中 on the Refresh Cycle, as it’s gentle enough to clean even delicate pieces. When they come out, they’re ready to wear 和 go in my closet. As each load is done, I fold 和 hang garments 和 think through what I want my closet 和 drawers to look like. By the time this process is 过度 my room feels so organized.
有一次，我 assess both piles, I’ll donate what I don’t need 和 take the rest to be consigned 和 then I’ll shop for any items I’d like to have in my closet for the new season. From there, 和 this is something new I’ve done for about a year now, I’ll make a ‘lookbook’ with my phone – just snap photos 和 save them to an album – so I can see how to mix 和 match outfits, just in case 我每天早上都在努力寻找服装灵感。
Doing this routine has made my closet 和 drawers feel more organized, current 和 easier to navigate. I struggled with picking outfits out for years 和 once I started doing this I shopped smarter, wore the clothing I loved at the most 季节性地-appropriate times, 和 have had an easier time getting dressed. It is said that we wear 20% of our 衣柜 80% of the time. I don’t want to have beautiful clothing stuffed away that I never wear, 和 this process helps make magic happen. If you’ve never tried a seasonal closet changeover, I certainly hope you give it a try.
