October in California is warm and golden during day but cold at night. It is really awkward to put all the light weigh clothes away. It always feels I may need it sometimes. This anguish thoughts usually put the transaction on hold until I run out of reasons to delay the task . Actually, the season changing process can be smooth and fun. Don’t take it as a one-time job but think it as a month long process. The secret is to put something away after each laundry. The summer-colored breezy materials can go first, then shorts, sandals. It is also a good time to sort out out-of-favors, out-of-shapes, and new favorites to come back the next year. Leave out something fun that I can layering them in the fall.
Each time you put away a few clothes, you bring out some cold weather pieces. Start from thicker jackets, cold weather colored shirts, cardigan and then sweaters and heavier coats. Other than the lightweight denims, most of my jeans are staying. The denims are essential of my closets.
This is also a good time to sort out the out-of-favored fall/winter clothes. One stone kills two birds: Declutter the closet and season change over at the same time. Now you have put away the summer cloth and reorganize the cold weather outfit. You are done until next time.
