GRANA  here;;
iN AREASOFTHECOUNTRY THAT have different seasons, we often do a"closet switch out"in between seasons.At the end of winter, we pack away warmer winter clothing.
At the end of spring we unpack summer clothing.
In New England seasonal changes are often uncertain:one week in earlyspring temps might be in the 80's& two weeks later sweaters & leg warmers  are needed again.How do you handle clothing for seasonal changes iin  your  area?

GRANA  here;
 Our sasonal changes are so different  that entire wardrobe switchoutssometime seem necessary.The trick is to not  not do it too early or we'll  be wearing shorts on a snowy day. I find it easier for most seasons to wear medium weight cottons which  can be supplemented by warming sweaters &  leg warmers if needed.In sumertime  the lightest weight cottons are the best idea & I stll keep sweaters handy for early morning  &  evennings.;

I live in Southern California but I still switch out my clothes in the fall and spring. And interestingly, I just made the switch out this morning. It was nearly a 100 degrees here today and I'm thinking our colder temperatures are gone until the fall.

Wow, Verlee. I thought our temps in Southern FL were getting hot at almost 90, but 100. Whew. Fortunately it has been raining since yesterday and it is very welcome.

Here in south eastern NC there is no need to do a major "switch out".  I do miss the big change in seasons!

Like Renee in NC, I don't usually do a big switch over here in SC but I just did go through and fill up some bags for the thrift store bins.  I don't know why I keep holding onto stuff that I'll never wear again!  I'm trying to be better about moving stuff out.

It should be easy for me to clear out my closet.
I moved into this house just about 1 year ago.  (can't believe it has been a year!) I should take all the clothes I have not used in a year and get rid of them.  It is a difficult thing to do...just in case I want to wear that dress again...just in case I need that blouse.
I just need to get serious and do it.  I don't need all the items I have and I sure don't need some of the dressier items I have.  I will put together  a few things that can go together that would do for a week or more if I were to go on a vacation.  I will pack the rest of the items away to donate.  I will put a note on the bag and if I don't need anything from the bag in a set period of time, like 3 or 4 months it will get picked up by Purple Hearts or Am Vets.
Ok I now have a project for today since it is chilly and the grass is wet and I can't mow!
Have a good morning and I will "see" you all later.

Sounds like me, holding onto stuff I probably will never wear.  I do wear some really old stuff, like things from college (had 50th reunion last year), but there's a lot I need to purge.

I kind of do a summer/winter switch,  but this winter was so warm I think I only wore a turtleneck long sleeved shirt a couple times.  The rest of the time is a short sleeved tee shirt.  I did put away the tank tops and shorts though.  However, in March when it got up to 85 I had to dig them out

Haven't done it yet.....the temps are too up and down.  I used to rush it.  The first two warm days, I'd be freshening up the packed away things and cleaning the ones to be packed away.  Lo and behold, the next day/week would be COLD.  I now wait until we have one whole week of warmer weather.  Saves my sanity doing it that way!

GRANA  here;
It is interesting how seasonal changes & the need  /lack of need for closet change-out varies around he country.In New England, we  think we are the only ones w/ untrustworthy changes in the seasons.I feel better knowing that I am not the only one keeping things well past the expected time " just in case"
I have only put away my few very heavy pullover sweaters.
Light- mid weight cardigans are pretty much year round for me.Now that we have a new air conditioning system It may not be necessary to hold onto my sunresses& hottest weather halter top dresses& time to donate them to the less fortunate( w/o AC) people.
I hestate, in  case our AC fails or I go to a warmer climatewhere spending time outdoors on a hot summer day( a BBQ, for instance) might make them a welcome clothing item?

I don't switch out my closet.  I have everything in one closet or my dresser drawers so there is no need to switch out things.  However, my closet was getting "stuffed" and I spent some time last month cleaning it out.  I actually pulled everything out of it and painted it too!

Well Ann aka Grana Thank You!!
 Because of your post I now have one clean organized closet. I have a huge bag of items for pick up.  I will not call as I have one more closet to go through and I have a few bags in the basement that I will go through as well.
I got serious and got rid of a lot of items that have not been worn in a year or more.
I will admit that I have a few things in the closet that should also join the items in the bag and they might still.  At this point I figure I am better off now than I was before your post.
Now I have to go through the drawers in the dresser as well and toss a few more items in the bag.

Usually I got through the closet two or three times a year and switch things.  This winter wasn't as cold so most of the really heavy sweaters never made it out of storage at all.  Since I donated a bunch of winter things last fall there isn't much to get rid of now.  But as soon as I start taking out summer things I'm sure there will be more to add to the donation boxes. 

Have you ever bought something, hung it in the closet and forgotten about it?  Then, found it and wondered why you ever bought it?  Like me?  LOL.  Oh well, somebody, somewhere will probably be thrilled when they find it in the thrift shop.

Haven't done it yet.  It is still too early and there are too many other things that need to be done first.  Will eventually do it and weed out what I want to give away, like I always do.

No, I haven't done this yet.  The weather keeps me guessing as to what to wear.
