Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
I'm in the middle of washing and getting dry-cleaned and folding my winter clothes to put them in the attic till November.
It's meant getting a coat, two skirts and three jackets dry-cleaned (the rest are washable), and bringing a pair of much-loved winter shoes to the cobbler for him to fix their annoying leak.
It’s very handy, because it clears wardrobe & drawer space so I can find and wear lovely summer things. It also means that the winter clothes go away clean and nice, and come out the same way.
The Scandinavians are great for doing this - they also have thicker, darker winter curtains, which they wash and put away for summer, replacing them with lighter curtains that flow in the wind and bring in the light.
