I have taken so many clothes off of hangers and folded them and put them in drawer storage as shown in this video. This has been a tremendous help and I really love this method of freeing up hanging space. I have folded all of my summer and winter pajamas (and my husbands t-shirts) in this manner too and it has made a huge difference in how neat and organized my drawers are!
I do prefer having things hanging where I can see them all and they get less wrinkled, but sometimes we have to relent and go to Plan B. Even though Plan B is in place, I STILL have more hanging clothes than will fit. Today I am making another pass through to see if there are other items I can let go of. (I need to let go of about 50 more items. I know everything remaining are things I like, but I'm going to have to reduce my wardrobe even further. It is something that I want to do though. I had fun shopping and gathering...but it feels good to let go and become less excessive.
Another thing I've done is take my 17 or so pairs of jeans off of hangers and folded those as well. I will have a large dresser and 2 tall bookcases to work with as storage so the jeans will find their home folded on the shelving unit.
I'm so glad we have a couple of weeks transition period between our current and new home so that I have time to move, sort, and downsize my wardrobe in stages as I see how things are fitting into our new lifestyle.
I'm linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday.
