Organizing Checklist for the Week of Oct 10-15

_____  Change the bedding. Bring out your warm comforters and add a cozy blanket on top of the sheets. It’s amazing how fresh a change in bedding can feel!

_____  Organize your coat closet. Weed out coats you no longer wear and donate to charity. If the kids have outgrown coats, either donate them or begin a storage box for hand-me downs.

_____  If you live in a house with a fireplace, schedule your fireplace and chimney cleaning now.

_____  Walk around your house with a notepad checking to see what tools and gardening supplies need to be put away along with any bushes or trees that need to be pruned. If you are a gardener, now is the time to plant bulbs and transfer perennials.

_____  When you’re on the phone or have 10 minutes to spare, pull out a drawer or two and clean it out. A silverware drawer, a junk drawer- wipe them out with a cloth and then put everything back. This will also get you started towards pre (dare I say it?) Passover cleaning!

    Lovely idea. How do we adapt it for those of us on the other side of the world.(i.e. South America, South Africa etc.)

  3. Debbie says:

    You can put away winter blankets, flannel sheets and take out spring/summer bedding (although in NY I tend to wait until its late spring so I know I won’t need them- we like to sleep with the windows open).

    It also a good time to put away scarves, hat, mittens and look for lighter spring/summer clothing).

    Basically, just prepare for summer vs winter…

    Ettie I was just thinking the same thing. This is the time of year to take out the spring/summer clothes and put away the winter clothes and coats.
    Now is a good time to wash and dry clean coats and then you do not have to worry about it pesach time.

    Firstly Thanks this is lovely!

    Secondly, For those in the southern hemisphere just do the opposite.

    if we’re taking out the winter coats for the middle of fall/ beginning of winter you are in the middle of spring/ beginning of summer and are probably putting away everything but the lightest wind breaker so apply there

    also you may be putting away your winter blankets etc…

    Hatzlocha 🙂

    Love this!
    Don’t forget to have your car winterized and snow tires put on! For us in the upper northeast we prepare a little earlier!

    Also, it is a good time to schedule your vent and heater servicing so that you don’t run into problems when the first snow hits!
