Has the Fall Cleaning Bug Hit You Yet?

Has the Fall Cleaning Bug Hit You Yet?

Although spring cleaning gets hyped a lot, we think fall cleaning is really more important...at least in cold climates. Chicago in spring is all about getting outside your apartment; in fall we go into nesting mode, preparing to spend the bulk of the brutal winter inside our homes. To make the next few months more pleasant, it helps to start off with a clean slate...

We found a good fall cleaning checklist at Organized Home. A few chores we plan to get started on this weekend: moving our plants indoors and preparing to store our deck furniture, washing the windows, and laundering all of our bedding. Our big project for the next month involves sprucing up our kitchen and organizing the pantry to prepare for the holidays.

What about you? Are any AT readers going into fall cleaning mode?
