Tips for Organizing in the fall
Summer always seems to fade into fall without much warning or fanfare, which can make organizing in preparation for the fall season a bit of a hassle! The fall adds plenty of tasks around the home, including organizing outdoor clothing, school supplies, decorations, and more. Thankfully, there are some ways you can make organizing for the fall simpler, easier, and much less frustrating. Let’s take a look at the very best tips for organizing this fall.
Organizing Outdoor Clothing
With fall comes a figurative shower of fall jackets, sweaters, and light coats! A home with more than two people can quickly find itself with piles of jackets and sweaters here and there. To avoid fall outdoor clothing clutter, try installing doubled clothing hooks underneath a sturdy shelf. You will be able to hang up jackets and other outdoor clothing neatly without taking up much space. If the shelf isn’t being used, you an also store other types of fall accessories, like mittens, earmuffs, and umbrellas!
Organizing School Supplies
With fall comes the thing parents have been anticipating all summer: back to school! To make sure that your home isn’t overrun with notebooks, pencils, and an endless amount of school supplies, make sure that you—and your children—are keeping them organized right from the start. Marked storage cubes can be a great way for your children to deposit their school supplies when they get home, instead of throwing their backpacks and schoolbooks wherever they happen to drop them. If you want to make sure your kids are getting their homework done on time, make “HOMEWORK IN” and “HOMEWORK OUT” boxes that they can put their papers in right when they get home from school.
If you decorate for the fall, it’s important to make sure that your decorations are neatly organized in or outside the home. Make sure that leaf or fall flower garlands hang evenly while outdoor decorations are cleaned regularly to clear them from leaves or other fall debris. When your decorations are not in use, put them in clearly marked storage containers that you can slip somewhere inconspicuous—such as in a closet or underneath a bed—when not in use.
