7 Fall Organizing Tips

7 Fall Organizing Tips
  • Opening Intro -

    Getting organized is not a science, rather it is an effort.

    Fall is the perfect time of the year to reorder your home with summer now past and the holidays approaching.

-------------------------------------

Colder temperatures, turning leaves and pumpkins define this season. You can add your own definition by incorporating seven fall organizing tips.

1. Swap out your wardrobe.

Keep one or two summer outfits handy for the rare very warm day, but put the rest of your summer clothes away. Bring out the winter clothes and take to the cleaners what wasn’t drycleaned last spring. Take inventory of your winter gear to ensure that everyone in your home has what they need.

2. Review your taxes.

Yes, tax season is months away, but sifting through your paperwork now can reduce your headache come January. Put every receipt in its place and order your tax software now. Or, surprise your accountant and make your tax season appointment for next year.

3. Wash your windows.

The angle of the sun is showing you just how streaked your windows are. Don’t clean them when the sun is shining or you’ll find more streaks later on.

4. Inspect your windows.

While you’re cleaning your windows, inspect them. Ensure that they are ready to go through the winter months, with sufficient weather stripping in place. If you find a problem, then fix it while it is yet warm.

5. Plant your spring bulbs.

Right now, before the ground freezes, is when you should plant your spring bulbs. Head over to your nursery and get the right bulbs for the most beautiful spring display.

6. Review your food storage.

If you store food, review what you have on hand. Throw out dated foods and organize everything by expiration date. Replenish what you need to cover you for the coming weeks and months.

7. Hold a garage sale.

Perhaps you realize that you have more stuff in your home than you need or can possibly use. Hold a garage sale to reduce your belongings or donate your good condition items to a thrift shop.

Organization Tips

Tackle one job a day and you’ll have everything done within a week. Or, spread these chores out over the next 3 to 4 weekends to have your home looking ship-shape in time for the holidays. Make a to-do list and have it handy for your after the holidays organizing projects. Be of the mind that if you do not really need it, then get rid of it!
