Fall Cleaning 101 :: Rotate, rotate, rotate!!!

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.
Fall Cleaning Task #2:
Launder or dry clean blankets, duvets and bedding. Rotate your wardrobe and donate/sale those items you no longer wear or need.
My boys often get lovely new clothes for Christmas or due to amazing retail sales, so I really like to know what they are needing prior to making purchases. By  having my family's current sizes on hand or a need-list, (in my Household Management Notebook) shopping sales becomes easier. 

Fall Cleaning Task #3:

Rotate your mattresses. This is also a good time to vacuum mattresses. Store laundered warm-weather bedding;  and update beds with cool-weather bedding.

By taking care of these items now, you won't find yourself searching last minute for blankets on those extra chilly nights! Plus, when guests come to visit throughout the season, you'll be ready.
