I’m quite impressed with myself today, because I did something I should have done a long time ago: organized my tights. You’ve probably realized I own quite a collection of tights, and up until now they were stored literally just thrown in this box, overflowing everywhere, yes literally thrown because the box was kept in the spare room on top of two piled up sofas, which requires quite some climbing to get to!! So today I decided I would get on top of this situation since I’m going home for Easter soon, then very soon we’re moving out of this flat (I’m starting to get a bit sad!), and I really need to sort everything I own out.
So, I’ll give you a little run down of how I got it all sorted:
Get somewhere comfortable with plenty of room, and tip all your tights in front of you.
Now you need to stick your hand inside every single pair and check for ladders, holes etc. Any that are completely ruined, put straight into a bag to put in the bin; any that just have a little hole/ladder, put aside, these can be used as cloths, filters etc.
Optional bulletpoint here: if you have some unworn tights that you don’t think you’ll ever wear (I discovered a few pairs of patterned ones that I’m just not feeling now), put them aside to go to the charity shop or eBay.
Right, so you should be left with a pile of good tights! Now sort them into different types, ie: opaque, sheer, patterned, colours.
Grab some freezer bags and put the rolled up tights into these bags in their different types, you can get anything from 2 to 6 pairs into one bag depending on the thickness.
Don’t forget to label them using a permanent marker or else you’ll be rifling through the bags looking for the right ones!
And that’s it!! This has reduced the amount of storage space I need for my tights by around 75%, and will definitely make it a lot easier for me to find the right tights when I want them. Plus transporting them home and whatnot will be so much easier, just chuck your bag of tights into the suitcase, and there you go!!
Hope this is helpful to someone else, I felt pretty awesome after I’d done this =)
