Spring organizing, does it cause you angst ? We’ve asked experts, “In Place” in Jackson Hole, WY, to offer up some easy spring organization tips.

Rule #1 Move Out Seasonal Clothes and Gear

For every client for spring organizing, big or small closet, the rule remains: swap out seasonal clothes and gear. If your space is limited, pack away out-of-season items in bins.

Mixing seasonal and day-to-day wear clouds your view, leading to a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear so designate sections for each season. Extend this rule to gear too, swapping ski helmets for bike helmets. Streamlining allows you to “shop” your own items and know what you have at the start of each season.

Spring Organizing…getting started….

  • Start by editing ruthlessly: discard items like stained t-shirts, expired goods, and emotionally insignificant belongings.
  • Avoid overthinking: if you can’t decide in 10 seconds, move on and return to it later.
  • Create trash and donation piles without worrying about where each item will end up.
  • After multiple rounds of editing, swiftly remove the piles from your space to maintain momentum.
  • Utilize local donation spots like The Coombs Foundation, The ReStore, and Browse ‘N Buy for different categories of items.

What’s Next? Group like items.

Corral similar things and move them to the general vicinity of where they should live. This can mean moving family members’ personal belongings from common spaces to their bedrooms, moving things that were dumped in the garage inside to where they belong, to pulling absolutely everything out of your kitchen cabinets to start over with a more functional layout.

The Fun Part

  • Transitioning to the enjoyable phase: implementing stylish systems, custom closets, labeled bins, and color-coding.
  • After editing, knowing what needs storage and where it should go, measure and seek storage solutions that accommodate your belongings.
  • Ensure your storage fits your items, not the other way around, to avoid compromising efficiency for aesthetics.
  • In our garage designs, we often integrate versatile slatwall systems to optimize vertical space and flexibility for storing various items, accommodating potential future hobbies or needs.

New Life to Your Space

After decluttering and organizing your home, treat yourself to a little upgrade for your refreshed space. Even small touches like new throw pillows or blankets can make a big impact!
