We’re all familiar with spring cleaning, but fall is just as great of a season to declutter your home and prepare for the transition to cooler weather. Here are a few tips to start the fall cleaning process in your home, so you can enjoy the approaching holiday season in a more organized and relaxed way.
Clean out your closet
The holidays often bring in new purchases or gifts, which often end up in an already full wardrobe. The best way to avoid this is to do a bit of clearing out in your closet and get rid of items you no longer wear. Quick tip: have a donation bag or bin nearby to declutter as you go.
Organize your pantry
As the fall season calls for pies, hearty meals, and plenty of cooking, having an organized pantry can make the coming months less hectic and messy. Take time to tidy your pantry and toss or donate any food you won’t be eating. You can even challenge your friends to empty out a few cans of food from their pantry and donate them to your local food shelter for the holiday seasons.
Liven up your living room
Fall is the ideal season to spend time with family and friends and watch movies, play games, or gather around a fireplace with some hot chocolate. To bring in some extra warmth and coziness to your home, add some fall decor to your living room such as warm-toned pillows, soft blankets, vanilla-scented candles, and of course, plenty of pumpkins.
Prepare for cooler weather
For those who live in colder climates, fall is the perfect time to organize a coat closet with all of your fall/winter essentials. Having jackets, coats, and boots in one place for easy access is the best way to store your fall/winter gear for the colder months. Adding some bright-colored scarves to your fall wardrobe is a great way to make gloomy days more lively and fun.Find BluTech Near You
