Prepping for Fall: 6 Decluttering Tasks for a Cozy Home

#Swap your Summer Wardrobe

The first thing you need to do to prepare for autumn is to get rid of your summer wardrobe. Make space for all of your sweaters, cardigans, and fluffy scarves. Organize your clothes, shoes, and accessories according to how often you wear the items. That will save you both time and effort when you are getting ready to go out. In addition, to organizing your fall wardrobe, make sure to declutter some items, as well. If you see anything that you do not remember wearing, give it to a friend, family member, or donate it! There is no point in holding on to items that do not serve you. And you know what they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

#Declutter the Entryway

The entryway really sets the mood of your home. That is why it is a good idea to declutter and rearrange it with every season. Limit the amount of shoes, jackets, and keys rolling around, and clean all the areas. Make sure to leave as little items in the open as possible. Leave only the most used ones. If you have plants there, make sure to remove the dust from their leaves. If you have themed door mats now is the time to bring out the Halloween/Autumn vibes.
