As summer comes to a close, itís time to begin thinking about a fall clean up. Fall clean ups are a vital component in ensuring a healthy, beautiful yard. Iím sure some of you are wondering, ďWhat exactly is a fall clean up?Ē Well, a fall clean up is the fall maintenance that preps your lawn and landscaping for the winter. A fall clean up should take place after the leaves have fallen, which will vary depending on where you live. Here are a couple things you should consider as part of your fall clean up: Lawn & Yard: Begin by raking and cleaning up all leaves, debris and small branches. Next would be to mow, preferably with a mulching mower, which will also suck up any dead grass and leaves that you may have missed when raking. You may want to consider de-thatching the lawn and again raking up any dead grass that wasnít sucked up by the mower. Aeration is also an important step to take to have healthy grass in the spring. And to top it all off, use a fall fertilizer to protect your lawn from the harsh winter months. Bushes & Flowers: Be sure to prune any dead or infested branches from trees or bushes so that they will be healthy to grow in the spring. Cut back perennials after the first frost, leaving a couple of inches above ground to protect it. And nowís the time to plant any flowers/bushes that are safe to be planted in the fall, making sure they are planted a few inches deep. This will leave you with less work for you in the spring and a better bloom. Remove unwanted weeds with the hope that they will not come back up in the spring. In addition to your landscaping, you should also check your gutters after the leaves have fallen. Clearing debris out your gutters and flushing them with the hose will ensure that they are not clogged, which will in turn save your home from potential water damage that occurs due to clogged gutters. Power washing your deck and patio is also a good idea. It will wash away the debris from the summer and from the falling leaves. Fall clean ups are no easy feat. If youíre not up for the task consult a local landscaping company. In any event, a fall clean up will only help make the spring clean up a little easier.

3D rendering of a modern light colored kitchenThe kitchen can be one of the most cluttered rooms†in the home. Not only does it house your everyday dining and cookware but thereís also all sorts of seasonal, special occasion and specialty items that seem to take over precious cabinet space. If youíre ready to take inspiration from the minimalist movement and make your kitchen a more sane version of itself keep reading! Begin. Start by clearing out anything you know you donít use. If you are having a hard time ask yourself if you have used the particular item in the last three months. If itís not a holiday related item, you can add it to your donate pile. If the idea of getting rid of half of your kitchen items is overwhelming, itís okay to start slow and move at your own pace. In the end, this is your project so you only need to go as far as you are comfortable and make the tips below work in a way that is best for you. One. The number the average family needs of a particular item and/or set. One measuring set, one silverware set, one bake set, one set of drinking glasses, etc. In our culture more is more. However, how often do you really need more than one of any of the above-mentioned items? Be honest here and cull your stash accordingly. Skip specifics. Consider letting go of any food type specific appliances and gadgets. Items like garlic crushers, lemon squeezers, popcorn machines, waffle irons, or ice cream makers. The list can go on. Of course, if you really value an item and use it on a weekly basis donít toss it in the name of minimalism. The case, more often than not, though is that these types of items are rarely if ever used. Coffee mugs. One section of the kitchen that can grow out of control easily is coffee mugs. Between ďBest MomĒ mugs and vacation mementos on top of your regular set, the average household usually has more mugs than they ever use. Keep the coffee mug situation under control by keeping ones you truly enjoy using. If you have one you love but donít enjoy drinking from it consider using it as a unique pencil cup or flower vase. Get creative. Invest in kitchen tools that can pull their weight by becoming the ultimate multitaskers. Make your own spice combinations instead of buying premade bottles that take up more space. An immersion blender with a whisk and chopping attachment easily replaces itís bulkier counterparts that can only single task. A couple of great knives can do more a whole set of subpar ones. Create a less cluttered kitchen you enjoy using by taking a page from the minimalist movementís book. By cutting down to the bare necessities and buying good quality multitasking items youíll feel like you get more use and creativity out of your kitchen than when it was filled with gadgets. Youíll also have the added bonus of fewer dishes to clean and more time to spend with your family!
