A Minimal yet Thoughtful Lifestyle
Cold days in Germany are much longer than warm days; therefore, winter coats or outdoor jackets are necessary and practical items, no matter for the daily life or the winter styling. Because of writing this article, I counted how many winter coats I have, around 30 pieces; the length of hanging in my closet is longer than the length of my body if I lay on the ground. The winter coats occupied the most space of my cabinet. Nevertheless, there are still more than five months that I do not even wear any of them. When I received the packing machine, WACÙ, first of all, I thought about how to use this tiny tool to help me for housekeeping and storage, especially, the winter coats; although the main demand of WACÙ is on traveling.
Tips of Packing Winter Coats
Sitting in the front of the coat hills, I tried to figure out the best way to pack these heavy and thick clothes. It is not only about packing but also storage; my three housekeeping principles : packing wisely, storing ordinarily, and the most important is, looking for the objects conveniently and easily. My plan for packing was to classify the coats in colors. However, I realized that it was not easy for me to look for the clothes quickly. Finally, I organized all outdoor wears into different functions and designs.
- The first category, long coats; My most favorite winter outdoor items. I only need good quality sweaters to team with any long coat to style for winter looks. It is also the great tip to create stylish yet minimal winter styles.
- The second category, outdoor snow jackets; sort of sportive wear, I do wear them so often, and they are the way too warm for the daily life. However, they are necessary for winter outdoor activities.
- The last category, normal winter jackets; those do not belong to the first category. They are the most useful and convenient items in winter. Further, I organized them into thin or thick packs.
WACÙ offers three different sizes vacuum bags, S (60x40cm), M (80x60cm), L(90x70cm). Size S and M are perfect for traveling; they are suitable for the different brand of luggage. Moreover, the L size of vacuum bag is excellent for housekeeping. From my experience of packing all winter coats, six over knee long coats are arranged perfectly in an L bag. I totally used five vacuum bags for all winter jackets. The height of stacking up five bags is just to my knees; it saves a lot of living and storage space.
Thus, I cleaned up my closet and have bigger space for my summer and autumn stuff. Those heavy winter items are all packed and stored in the storage room. WACÙ vacuum bags have a big advantage; one side is transparent; it is easier to look for what you need among all bags.
