Storing Seasonal Clothes

How do you store seasonal clothes? (And don't tell me you just have a beautiful closet big enough to keep all your clothes My closet is teeny and the bane of my existence!)

I've been keeping mine in big storage tubs in the garage, but it's so frustrating when I get out my winter sweaters and everything is so wrinkled. I always put everything away clean but then I have to iron it all when I take it out! I'm the kid of girl who would rather wash a clean sweater to get the wrinkles out than iron it.

Any great solutions out there?

I also store mine in tubs. Before wearing the item for the first time, I just wet a dish cloth or small towel and throw the item in the dryer with that for a few minutes. It takes the wrinkles right out.

We have extra bedrooms and just use those closets. Still have the big house but plan to downsize someday!

I don't have a big closet, I just have very few clothes! For me, drawer space is my issue. I keep out if season folded clothes under my bed in storage bins.

Use that spray

for taking out wrinkles. Can't remember the name of it. A friend's daughter and granddaughters use it all the time. Spray, run your hands down the clothing, wrinkles gone they say.

Itís called Downy Wrinkle Release. It actually works pretty good for lightly wrinkled items.

I always laugh when I hear "seasonal clothes". I don't know what that entails!

I used to store mine in tubs, then toss them in the dryer with a dryer sheet and damp towel. Freshened them up and removed wrinkles.

Then DH designed a huge closet for me.
