The art of homemaking is more than shining floors or ironed shirts, it is a way of life for many men and women. Beyond the daily chores routine, many homemakers teach children, volunteer their time, garden, or create a loving environment enriched by dutiful hands. Texas Homemaking seeks to encourage homemakers through crafts, useful tips, goal setting, organizing charts, daily deals, family issues, homeschooling, and more.

Fall Cleaning 101 :: Gut Check!
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.
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.
Fall Cleaning Tip #5:
This is the perfect time of year to clean out your gutters and sweep off the roof. Be very careful when performing these duties. Make sure you have a good ladder, gloves, a trash bag and someone to assist you, especially if you have a problem.
If you plan on hanging lights for Christmas, why not make the most of your time and go ahead and attach the light hooks to your gutters. I'm always a fan of multi-tasking, plus, your significant other will thank you!
