• Vacuum, dust and mop your whole place: You could use that extra hour on sunday to get this done!
• Clean your entrance and start a landing strip: What flowers have you added here? Have you purged tons of papers? Have hooks to hang your bag?
• Toss all old mail, catalogs and magazines: put them in your outbox and cancel the ones you know you don't read.
• Schedule to have all repairs done!
• Identify Cool Rooms and Warm Rooms: Check out natural color families for inspiration.
• Apply the 80/20 Color rule: This means 80% neutral and 20% color in any given space so that color isn't competing.
• Cook 2 meals at home this week: Head over to the kitchn for some ideas.
• Figure out your housewarming invitation: Our very favorite store is Urbanic in venice. Audrey carries the best letterpress cards!

• Research your shopping list: Next week you start shopping, so make sure you have a plan for what you're looking for. Le Swap is getting closer, (think the week before thanksgiving) and that should give you a chance to swap instead of buy!
• Start a list of changes you want to make: committing things to paper makes them more real and makes you accountable!
• Identify Cool Rooms and Warm Rooms: Are these working for you? Does your living room need to be warmer or does it need a cold shower?
• Call in the big guns: Figure out what you need a professional or a handyman for. Be realistic about how much you'll be able to do yourself and then ask for help!
