We have made many home schedules for our clients that reflect tasks for each week, each month and for each season.
As we move further into Fall, here is a general checklist to help make your home and wardrobe Fall ready!
Fit List for Fall:
  1. Get Filters for your furnace and schedule your annual maintenance, if you haven’t already
  2.  
  3. Review coats for condition and fit. Send out for any mending and/or dry cleaning. Now is a great time to donate any coats that don’t fit.
  4.  
  5. Do you change bedding for the seasons? Now is the time to launder or dry clean summer covers and trade them in for warmer comforters.
  6.  
  7. Cozy throw blankets will be in heavy rotation soon. Launder or dry clean so they are fresh and ready for the task.
  8.  
  9. They say our shoes should be waterproofed once a year. Check leather and suede shoes for dry brushing and apply waterproof spray.
  10.  
  11. While the weather is still mild, it is a great time to wash window screens and put away. And a clean winter window will allow the warmth of the sun to come through. Good to prep and wash storm windows and doors.
  12.  
  13. Make sure you have umbrellas that are functional and handy.
  14.  
  15. Recycle all spring and summer magazines and catalogs.
  16.  
  17. Gloves, hats, scarves, etc. will need a home or homes that are convenient. Consider creating a designated space near the coat closet or mudroom for each family member’s gear.
  18.  
  19. We want this to be a no scraping season! Let’s plan on getting the car into the garage. Move summer yard tools to the back or to a shed. Regroup tools and supplies, and put bikes away.

Happy Fall Transitions!

Do you keep supplements and/or meds in the pantry, or utility closet, or in a designated medicine cabinet in the kitchen or mudroom? Wherever they may be, chances are it is an area that becomes unruly quickly. Small bottles, awkward packaging, and measuring tools don’t rest well on shelves. We have a few tricks for keeping the meds […]

Whether you love record keeping or hate it, it is that time of year that we all have to do it; or at least, think about doing it. Pulling together tax documentation can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. There is a simple formula for keeping financial paperwork throughout the year. […]

We’ve had questions about what products we might suggest to help store toys so that they fit well in the play room, in response to last week’s blog. In general, look for furniture that takes advantage of vertical space–not just low-to-the ground storage; make sure there are varied depths of bins or shelves to harbor everything […]

Frequently I hear my clients say that the play room always looks like an explosion. Kids toys often are stored at kid height along the perimeter of rooms nearly encasing the entire space with what can feel like continuous clutter. So many toys these days require their own floor space like doll houses, and play […]
