How To Store Off-Season Clothes

Within the next few months, most of us begin the semi-annual change of clothing.  Spring is rolling around, and that means you’ll be wanting to dress lighter. Living in Florida, I don’t have a big change in attire.  I put my heavier clothes and coats in the back of the closet or in my suitcases.  When I lived up north, I had a much bigger winter wardrobe and had a complete process for my changes. I even changed some home accessories like curtains. You’re putting away the heavy drapes and rolling back the rugs to go back into  storage. Preparing the house to get back into warm weather mode takes some time, just like it takes time to get your home into winter mode.

Christmas Storage Labels

It’s almost a new year and soon all the holiday decorations will be packed away.   Sometimes it just makes me happy to have a clean box and a cute label.  I wanted a nice attractive label to make it easy to identify the boxes and the contents.  I designed 2 with Christmas designs.

Morocan Roasted Chicken

A friend of mine, Anita, loves to collect recipes and crafts from magazines. She has decades of cut-outs (pre-Pinterest ladies Anita & I are retired.) and recently has been weeding thru them to re-organize the keepers and eliminate those she doesn’t use. She then extended her clean out to her cookbooks.  Since she lives in an apartment, all unwanted cookbooks were deposited on a table at the building entrance for one of her neighbors to take.  I do love the sharing of things like this.  I myself did something similar to this back 10 years ago when I was downsizing.
