Open House: How Do You Ready Your Closets For Spring?

Spring is finally here. That means, among some other Spring projects, it's time to examine what's in your closet and shed some layers. So for this Open House, I want you to tell me all about your plans, if any, to update your closets for the change of season. Do you box and store your Winter wardrobe to make room for your lighter apparel? Do you leave all of your clothes in your closet year-round? Do you store your ski gear and bring out the surfboards as the snow melts and ocean temperatures rise? Do you haul your snow tires to the attic? Do you move your wool blankets to the back of your linen closet? Do you keep your out-of-season items in a cedar closet? Do you toss receipts that are so last season? Do you pull out your melamine picnic plates? Do you shed the junk you've collected (and hoarded) during the year? Will you be making a trip to the Container Store to stock up storage boxes? Or, is the idea of "Spring cleaning" your closet of no interest you? Fill me in on your plans by commenting below.

I try NOT to do a big clean at the end of winter because I see all my winter clothes and think "I NEVER want to have to wear wool sweaters again!" and inevitably end up getting rid of TOO much stuff that I find I need the next year. And then fall rolls around and I start digging for something and realize I got rid of it back in June when I thought I could never be THAT cold again....LOL

At the end of every season, I evaluate what I haven't worn, and then take all that stuff to Goodwill...chances are, if I didn't wear it this winter, I'm not going to want to wear it next winter!

i'd love to have time to sort through all my stuff to give away, i have so much i don't use. right now i'm putting some clothes that are too big on me into big plastic storage containers. not sure what to do with the containers though. as long as i have more room in my closet it's good! casasugar, i must know who did that beautiful closet in the picture. it is my dream closet! if i had that omg it'd be heaven.

I go through my winter clothes and sort out items for Goodwill. I pack heavy sweaters, bulky socks, tights, long underwear and cold weather bedding for storage. I also take a look around the home to see if there are books, appliances or goods that I don't use. These can go to Goodwill too. The feeling of "ligtening up" makes me excited to pull out my warm weather clothing!

I'm going to go through everything! I have so much stuff I'll never wear again. Plus I've lost some weight recently and need to get rid the tops that have gotten too big. I actually plan on purging a lot of my belongings.

i'm going to go through all of my clothes and hopefully get rid of some stuff. i'm also going to be doing some minor things to my closet (as part of my bedroom revamp) in the next few months, like finding a better way of storing my shoes and upgrading to wood hangers. i'm also going to try and move all of my winter coats and gear to the front hall closet. nothing too huge...

I gave away seven huge bags of clothes/shoes/handbags to a charity and threw away all the useless stuff. Our apartment looks really empty and it feels great! We also cleaned and washed everything and fixed what needed to be fixed. It took us a whole week.

Getting rid of the old and worn out, and this year, the way too big.
