Have I not said that you should separate out the seasons in your clothes closet??
This is the no-brainer of closet organization. Some of your wardrobe may be considered all year round but the rest should be sorted into spring/summer and fall/winter (including your shoes) and stored away for the off-season for the following reasons:
- gives you more room to store the clothes you currently wear
- allows you to see all of what you can wear now, keeping you from being distracted by what you cannot
- forces you to handle all your clothes, reacquainting you with what you have and what you should purge
- did I mention it gives you more room in your closet??
