Fall Cleaning


I love to give my home a top to bottom clean in the fall. Cleaning out the clutter, straightening drawers and closets makes me dread the thought of being indoors for winter a little less.

In the next few weeks I will be sharing some before and after pictures as I whip this place into shape! I am curious how many of you do fall cleaning?

  2. Me! I actually prefer fall cleaning to spring cleaning for the same reasons...I hate clutter... and can't stand to be around it!

  3. I do fall cleaning also as this is the time I get out all the warmer clothes and put the summer and spring clothes. It is such a good feeling when the house is done and the fall decorations are out I love it.

  4. Wendi,

    I hadn't thought of it as "fall cleaning," but I've been in the mood to do some sorting and organizing lately, too!

  5. I'm in a fall cleaning mood too! I've been wiped out since we started school, and I'm finally getting my energy back!

  6. Wendi,

    For me, I spring clean because I can open doors and windows for the air to refreshen the things that have gotten stale here.

    Our biggest challenge in living in the desert is the winds, dust and dirt. We rarely open the windows because the day after leaves such a film of stuff everywhere you wonder just how healthy is our air we breathe here.

    I am ready for fall though. I was just in Michaels, a craft store here, and loving all the reds, oranges, yellows and brown colors!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  7. Like you I love to fall clean. Getting rid of the clutter is just part of it. I seem to end up painting at least one room every year. It may be the same color, but a frest coat of paint makes the room look just so much better. I also re-arrainge funiture in the room so that the heat can better circulate in the winter so the rooms look different when I'm done. I am looking at a deeper yellow for my kitchen this year. I painted the cabinets a bright "angel" white and want the walls to have a bit more color on them. Can't wait for your before/after photos. Your rooms always look so put together!

  8. I do fall cleaning. Mostly because it is so hot here in the summer that the house has been closed up with the A/C on for months. So when it cools down I open the windows, clean out closets, and totally clean top to bottom. I am really much better at this than spring cleaning. :)

  10. I usually do a spring and a fall cleaning. I have started, since the weather here in Kentucky has been a little cooler. Finished the family room and my bedroom, lots still to do! Having a yard sale on Sat to get rid of some stuff! My cleaning will continue one room at a time thru the month of Sept, then I'll do it again in Mar or Apr!
