Fall Cleaning ~ Are You Ready Yet? :: Task #7

Fall Cleaning

Each Spring, homemakers across the country begin in the yearly ritual of Spring Cleaning. We break out our mops and dust clothes in an effort to ready our homes for the warmer weather. However, did you know, we need to do the same type of cleaning in the Fall?

Fall Cleaning is not as arduous as it's Springtime counterpart (thank goodness!), but it is necessary to ensure our homes are ready for the season and holidays.

This past weekend, I was able to complete many of my Fall Cleaning goals, but I still have a few to finish. Over the next couple of weeks, I will remind everyone of tasks they can do each day to accomplish their Fall Cleaning; thus, making the season a little less hectic.

Today's task:
  • This afternoon clean out and organize your pantry and kitchen cabinets. This is a good time to peruse your canned and dry goods to donate to local food pantries. If donating, please make sure your items are still in date. When cleaning out your kitchen cabinets, if there are items you no longer use (like those cute little melon ballers you haven't used in a  year), donate or place them in your garage sale bin.  I also use this time to inventory any of my spices or baking items I may need to replace for holiday cooking. (This is why I have this on a Friday! Sometimes it takes a little longer than a day - and that's ok!)
