Aloha Friday: Have you put your winter clothes away?

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Every Friday (well, ok, almost every Friday) I ask a simple question for you to answer--nothing that requires a lengthy response.

I just read a wonderful blog post titled "Laundry Problems Start With Clothes." The basic gist of it was that most of us have more clothes in our closets than we need (or at least than we need in any particular season)...and that this hampers (pun intended) our attempts to get the laundry under control.

Now, in Texas (and California too), we can't really put the summer clothes away come winter time...cause even in dead winter there may be need to wear shorts. But we can safely store away our winter clothes during summer (cause here there is NEVER need for a thick coat, turtleneck, or sweater in summer...well, except maybe in the chilly overly-air-conditioned buildings).

So, my question for this week's Aloha Friday is this:
  • Have you put away your winter clothes yet?

I'm still in process. Part of the problem is that I tend to let the clothes I don't really need at the moment sit in the bottom of the hamper while I focus on washing the clothes I need right now. This means that a lot of the clothes I should be putting away are still needing cleaning (yes, this does speak to the sad state of my laundry situation). This week, I'm making a concerted effort to get down the the bottom of those hampers so I can finally put those clothes AWAY!

  1. Mostly, yes - I still have one or two sweaters out but I've mostly transitioned to summer clothes already. Not that Wisconsin Weather has transitioned with me lol

  3. I haven't quite put them away, but I have segregated them and folded them into neat piles...now I just need to do some reorganization and actually put them away! ;)

  7. Nope! I'm in TX and it's hardly worthy of having a winter wardrobe. lol

  8. I never put my winter clothes away -- but I do put my summer clothes away each year. I'm on the west coast of Canada and use my summer clothes for only a few months a year, but ALWAYS need warm sweaters, pants etc to turn to year round!
