It's October (gasp!) and the cold — really cold — weather will be here before you can snap your fingers. Get a jump on winter by taking care of a few things in and around the house now, while it's still bearable temperature-wise, and you aren't knee deep in snow and ice. Here's a checklist of things to make for an easier transition...

Pop some or all of these tasks onto your own to-do list — or download ours — for a well-rounded, low-stress way to keep your life running smoothly and your space functioning at its best. It's all part of maintaining a happy and healthy home in 2016, and keeping it relaxation-ready all year long.

And if you like these kind of reminders and to-do lists, sign up for the Weekend Projects email. Each Friday we'll send you a gentle nudge in the form of a project to complete that weekend. Each post will include all the info you need to get it done. If you feel like doing it then, and it makes sense for your home, that's great. If not, wait until the following week's task, or choose from any other past projects to do instead. It's a "Choose Your Own Adventure" approach to home maintenance.
