Group your clothes by fabric when storing them.

Use moth repellent, ideally made of cedar. Cedar repels moths and discourages them from laying eggs.

Avoid wire hangers. They can stretch the shoulder fabric in your garments.

Only use plastic container for items you're storing for less than six months. They can age your fabric.

Store items in a cool, dark and dry environment. Temperature and humidity can affect fabric.
