As we move further into Fall, here is a general checklist to help make your home and wardrobe Fall ready!
Fit List for Fall:
Get Filters for your furnace and schedule your annual maintenance, if you haven’t already
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.
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.
Cozy throw blankets will be in heavy rotation soon. Launder or dry clean so they are fresh and ready for the task.
They say our shoes should be waterproofed once a year. Check leather and suede shoes for dry brushing and apply waterproof spray.
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.
Make sure you have umbrellas that are functional and handy.
Recycle all spring and summer magazines and catalogs.
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.
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!
