Winter-Wear: Inventory Before Storing

Winter is almost over! The end of winter coats, scarves & gloves, and boots is around the corner. While you may be ready to banish your winter-wear to the basement ASAP…wait a minute and take stock.

The end of this season is a good time to take a good look at your stuff and decide if they are keepers, or needing repair before they are stored.

Here are some questions to answer and act on before storing away your winter-wear:

Winter Boots:

  • Need cleaning?
  • Need new heels?
  • Need a polish?
  • Zipper needs repair?
  • Still fit?

Winter Coats and Heavy Sweaters:

  • Need cleaning?
  • Hems need to be secured?
  • Any rips, pilling, or discoloration?
  • Lining needs repair/replacement?
  • Still fit?

Gloves/Mitts and Scarves & Hats:

  • Need cleaning?
  • Rips/holes to repair?
  • Still fit?

Once determined, just take care of what needs to be done, put away, then spring can start!
