Fall is a great time to get organized!

Although Fall has not officially begun, most of us are certainly changing our “lazy days of summer” attitude and are gearing up for what tends to be the busiest part of the year. With the kids back in school and the holiday season and Winter in the not so distant future it is a great time to focus our attention and energy on Fall organizing.

– How does your garage or outdoor storage shed look? Time to clear out the clutter that has accumulated over Summer in order to get ready for the Winter season.

– The guest room often becomes the catch-all area of the home. Be prepared for visitors by purging the room and closet of all items that don’t belong. Don’t wait and go into full-blown stress-mode when guests are due to arrive.

– The mudroom and coat closet are two areas that will likely need to be reorganized as well. Remove all stray items and switch out Summer gear for Fall and Winter attire. Don’t just store things away. Use this opportunity to see what may need to be replaced, cleaned or mended.

– Bedroom closets are also on the seasonal list of areas to re-organize. Let go of anything you or your family haven’t worn this Summer and make a list of anything that may need to be purchased for the colder weather.

Planning ahead will alleviate a lot of stress. So grab a pen and paper and compile a list of all the areas of your home that need some attention. Then prioritize these areas in order of importance and schedule some time to work on each project. Consider breaking larger tasks into 2 smaller sessions to keep from feeling overwhelmed.

A few small organizing projects spread out over the next few weekends will prepare you for the busy season ahead and cut down on unnecessary stress. Involve the entire family and get started now.
