Now’s the time for Fall Cleaning – Part One

As the seasons change it is a perfect time to do some fall cleaning in and around your house! One thing you need to decide is where to start first. I created a checklist to help you stay focused and on track as you clean. In this two-part blog I will share a few decluttering ideas and then we will get down and dirty on cleaning! So without wasting anymore time, let’s get cleaning!

  • Clean and organize your closets. If you’re like me and you have lots of closets in your home, chances are they could use some attention! Start at one closet and work your way through your house; always finish one closet before you start the next! Go through each closet, organize your stuff and throw away anything that you haven’t used in the past year or two and can’t donate or sell. While you are decluttering your closet, wipe down any shelves and vacuum if needed. If you have a lot of closets, this may be a daunting task, but space them out over a few days and you will fly through them!
  • Swap out your clothing. As fall sets in, flip flops, shorts, and t-shirts are replaced with sneakers or boots, pants, and hoodies. Now is the perfect time to pack up your spring and summer clothing and bring out your fall and winter attire. As you are doing this, do some decluttering and get rid of anything you haven’t worn in the past two years. If you are a spring and summer nut, try not to shed a tear as you are putting your shorts and t-shirts away – spring will be here before you know it!
  • Clean out your attic/basement. Have you just been piling things in your attic or basement, thinking, “I will get to that later”? As the cooler temperatures set in, now is the time! Consider adding shelving units to better organize your items. Go through and organize your boxes, again getting rid of anything you don’t need or want anymore. As you are doing this, remember to sweep up the floors!

Now that you have your house decluttered, you are ready to begin the task of cleaning! Since you have been cleaning some areas as you go, I hope the thought of cleaning the rest of your house isn’t so scary anymore! I will be back next month with lots of ideas on how to give your house a really good fall cleaning! But until then sit back, relax and be proud of what you have accomplished so far!
