If you have limited wardrobe space, and therefore need to store out-of-season clothing while not in use, do you have any suggestions for suitable storage methods?

I recommend vacuum storage bags. They're fabulous for several reasons:

*They triple storage space.
*It's a great way to protect your clothing from insects, dust, mould, moisture and odours.
*They pack very flat so you can slip them under your bed or at the top of your wardrobe
*They're reusable, so when you're done with one season, you can swap clothes.
*Great also for soft furnishings, soft toys, etc.

The bags come in a range of sizes and are available from the likes of Briscoes and The Warehouse.

Just be careful storing tailored, structured garments such as suits - if they get squashed out of shape they may need to be re-pressed.
