Do You Have a College Student Moving Home for the Summer?

The move is finally over. It is the first time your older daughter has been home for the summer in three years. She made the 12 hour trip home from college several times during the last three years, but it has not been since the summer after her freshman year that she has come home. After graduation a few weeks ago, however, you helped your daughter move three years worth of clothing and memories out of her apartment style dorm room.

When she got home, however, she was unable to move back into her own bedroom as that space was already occupied. Because your niece, her husband, and two young boys were living with you for a few weeks while they waited to close on a new house, your older daughter moved into the unfinished basement. With a new queen size bed and a very sturdy rolling clothing cart your daughter set up a temporary room in the cool and quiet basement space. She used the new set of clear hangers that you had left for her on the clothing rack to at least hang up the clothing items that she wanted to wear the most.

Decorative Storage Bins and Matching Hangers Can Make Any Space Feel Like Home

This week, now that your niece and her family have moved into their own home, your daughter was finally able to move back into her own room. Carrying armfuls of clothing on those clear hangers your daughter definitely got in a workout making trips from the basement to the second floor bedroom. She was able to make use of the hanging clothing rack once she finished the first set of upstairs trips. She was able to sort and organize the hanging clothes that she would not be wearing this summer, but wanted to make sure that she emptied and stacked all of the storage tubs.

In a time when many Americans have more clothes than ever before it really should come as no surprise that there are a wide variety of velvet hangers, clear hangers, and various other color coordinated options. To get an idea about how many more clothing items are in today’s wardrobe, it is interesting to note that in the 1930s the average woman only had nine outfits. Today, however, that number has increased to 30 outfits, one for every day of the month.

Also not surprising, the average American family now spends $1,700 on clothes every year. Most of us, in fact, have so many items that we cannot even keep track of all of them. In fact, over the course of a lifetime, most of us will spend a total of 3,680 hours or 153 days searching for misplaced items. Fortunately, there are a number of organizational items like hangers and storage bins that can help people work on getting organized, even when they are traveling from college to a basement and then in a bedroom in just a few short weeks!
