Home for the holidays

Tips to get your house holiday ready without last minute stress.

Focus on the main areas of the house that guests will be seeing. Areas you may not think of are the porch and entryways.

Spend some time cleaning the oven and fridge. This step can avoid an oven catastrophe, and make sure the fridge is ready to store all the holiday food. Quick tip, go through your recipes and see what can be made ahead of time.

Get some nice seasonal scents to keep the house smelling great. Make sure not to get heavy smells or too many scents going at once. Some people are very sensitive to certain scents so be sure you can clear the smell out easily if needed.

Get the table ready. You might already have fancy dishes you bring out on special occasions or maybe now is a good time to invest in some.

Clean the floors. Cleaning floors can be a tedious task and take some time. But you can google quick tips from pros on easy floor cleaning methods.

Prep for house guests. Make sure you have room for anyone staying over, clean up the guest bathrooms and make sure to have lots of extra towels, toiletries, pillows, and bedding ready.

If your guests have small children make sure you kid proof as best as you can and maybe invest in some cheap baby and toddler friendly dishes. Also, make sure you have food and snacks that are tailored to small guests.

If you have a fire get the space ready by having wood and fire starter supplies, clean the fire place, set some cozy blankets and pillows around the fireplace to create a nice place for guests to gather.

Be sure to book a bin if you need!

Halloween Family Tradition

Halloween is my favorite time of the year, the cool weather, changing leaves, and the fun of Halloween decorating.
Every year my family and I create our own Halloween decorations. We make sure we keep it simple and under $5 for each project. The kids love coming up with ideas and making the decorations by hand.
Here is a list of the projects we have loved doing most.

SPECIMEN JARS: Glass jars filled with creepy objects and colored water.
GRAVEYARD: Headstones cut from Styrofoam and spray painted with fun names written on them.
APOTHECARY JARS: Decorative glass jars filled with fall themed candy.
GHOSTS: White sheet cut into squares, yard balls, fishing line and you're set for a yard full of ghosts.

Have fun coming up with your own decoration ideas and making this a spooky and memorable Halloween. Stay safe and Enjoy!

The best To Do list

 Fall and winter is my favorite time of year, the to do list for fall prep is even fun to me!
This is the stuff I have on my list every year:

Fertilize the yard with fall fertilizer, I do lawn, trees, and plants.
Check all my gutters and make sure there are no blockages or damage.
Make sure my downspouts drain at least a foot from the house.
Check the doors and windows for any drafts or cracks.
I installed Christmas light hooks that match my house so I can leave them up all year long.
Store all my summer clothes in bins.
Donate coats and boots that we've grown out of.

Be sure to add getting a bin to your list so we can haul off any trash from your project.

Labor Day Chores

Summer is coming to an end and school has started. As busy as your schedule is Labor Day can give you a few extra hours to get some of your winter prep chores done. Here is a list of simple chores that should help you feel accomplished and closer to being ready for colder weather.

Clean out all the closets and junk drawers in the house. I like to keep my summer clothes in bins until next year. I keep them on the hangers to make it easier to hang back up and store them with a lavender bag so they are fresh when I open them up. Maybe you just need to go through the clothes and coats that have hiding getting no love in your closet, bag them up and donate them. Junk drawers can gather so much... well junk. That is a quick task that make a huge difference.

Clean out the garage. I clean out my garage with each season, making sure to sweep and keep the cob webs from building up. Maybe it is time to clear out the garage so you can park your car inside.

Update your bathroom. A renovation in the bathroom can be done very affordably and done in a weekend. Maybe you just need to get some new rugs and shower curtains, or a fresh coat of paint. Any change can make a huge difference!

Read up on the plants, trees, and shrubs in your yard to see how to best prep them for winter. I make sure to cut down my fountain grasses and raspberry bushes. The internet has great advice on to prep for winter.

Give us a call if you need a hand hauling away your Labor Day project clean up.
Have a great Labor Day!! Make sure to spend lots of time relaxing!
