Ditch Your Summer Clutter

Has summer clutter taken control of your home? Fall gives everyone the perfect reason to declutter from summer and prep for the rest of the year. If you have a cluttered home, here are a few tips to help you begin your fall cleaning.

Start with the Closets

Closets are the easiest place to begin. You and your kids should try on every piece of clothing. Get rid of anything too small or out of style. Next, move the summer clothes to the back and your fall and winter clothes to the front. Make sure those clothes still fit; if not, they must go.

Lose The Summer Garage Chaos

Do you have bikes, gardening supplies, summer sports equipment taking over your garage? Take a weekend and give your garage a fall makeover. Donate or sell old toys, bikes, and tools. Map out a storage plan to fit your summer stuff and make your winter tools accessible.

Freshen up The Kitchen

Whether it’s for the big game or the upcoming holiday season, fall is the start of hosting season. Take time to declutter, organize and scrub your kitchen. Get rid of the extra little things you don’t use. You might be surprised at the duplicate items you find. Trash, donate, or sell the items to make a little extra cash.

Get Rid of Old Toys

If you have kids, you most likely have old toys shoved into a closet, drawer, or corner. If they haven’t seen the light of day in a while, it’s time to pass them on.
