Are You Ready for Fall?

I Love when the seasons change.  I love the changing colors and temperatures.  This time of year is clean up time.  Getting our yards and homes all ready for the winter months .  I also love to do some quick de-cluttering around my home.  I try to take a load of our excess to our local thrift store.  It helps with bringing in the new stuff we will at christmas.  It always amazes me at how much I end up giving away because we just don't use it or the kids have out grown it etc. I try and set a goal of a bag a week from now through november.  You should try it.  Its amazing how great you will feel, your house will be cleaner and have less clutter.  You will also really be able to figure out some great christmas gifts that hopefully will be useful as well as fun.

This time of year I always like to go through our coat closet to see who needs what and what needs repaired or donated.  

Here is the before picture.

What we parted with.

And the after picture.  Oh, the closet can breath easier now.  Looks great!

How do you get ready for Fall and the Holiday's?  

Happy Cleaning!

Keeping it Simple
