When the warn weather returns, there are always a few slight changes in our lifestyles. For one thing, we no longer need to spend ten minutes bundling up before we run errands. We can start exercising outside, and we might change the types of meals we’re cooking. This annual transition is always made easier with a little intentional home organization. These tips will help you organize for spring.

Swap Sweaters for Sun Dresses

After months of heavy layering, it always feels good to put away the sweaters for another warm season. What’s even more satisfying is getting sweaters, wool pants, heavy winter coats, and other cold-weather items out of the house all together. All items should be cleaned before storing, then kept in a space that’s 70 degrees or below, with low light and low humidity. Garment bags are great for coats, while sealed plastic bins will keep sweaters and shirts safe. With those things in storage, you’ll have plenty of room for your warm-weather clothing at home.

 

Adjust Your Home to the Flow of Spring

Now that your overcoats are in storage, your coat closet will have space for your light jackets. This is just one way in which you can adapt your home to go with the spring flow. Place an umbrella rack by the door to keep wet umbrellas off of the floor and there when you need them. Hang a three-tier fruit basket in the kitchen for quick access to fresh produce from the local farmer’s market. Purchase some colorful baskets and bins where your kids can store their outdoor toys when not in use. Solid home organization is all about anticipating what you will and won’t need in your day to day life and finding a place where it can be easily accessible and out of the way.
