My kids are on fall break this week, and the weather is spectacular, which means it’s time for fall cleaning! I think fall cleaning is actually more important than spring cleaning- you want to get your house as clean as possible before the busy holiday schedule starts. Plus, I like to throw open the windows and get as much dust out the house as possible before we have to button up for winter.

Now is the time to prepare the outside of your home. Since everything will soon be dying one trim or weeding should clean things up nicely. Today’s outdoor task is to gather the potted plants that have been living outside for the summer and move them to their indoor winter home. (Sometimes I wish someone would move me to a winter home.)
Today’s inside task focuses on the windows. I am taking down all the blinds and curtains and cleaning them up. I’m also washing all the windows, both inside and out. My mom says that windows are the “eyes” of the house and we should keep them clean.
