September means that fall is in full swing and energy levels get ratcheted up a notch. Summer Fridays are a thing of the past and work and school are in full swing. But the good news is that the scorching days are behind us, and cooler ones aren’t far behind! This month, put the summer heat behind you, and get ready to spend more time indoors. Devote a little time this month to do some projects that will make your home more cozy.

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.
