How-To: Pack Away Your Winter Wardrobe

Now is about the time of year you should be putting away your winter clothing if you live in Sydney, like I do. (Generally I'd do it even earlier, but there has been some unseasonable cold weather this spring.) If you have a very large wardrobe, you probably don't need to do this, but if like most of us there's not quite enough room, this is a great way to make the clothes that you will be wearing over the coming summer months are more accessible.

I find the best place to store my winter clothing is in my large suitcase (which unfortunately doesn't get used for travelling that much). Consider at least packing bulky items away, such as the following:
  • Coats
  • Parkers
  • Bulky woollen jumpers
  • Winter scarfs
  • Gloves
  • Beanies
  • Winter pyjamas
Additionally, it is a great time to determine if any of your winter clothing is getting old and should taken to a charity shop or thrown away, plus to get anything dry-cleaned that you won't be wearing months to come.
