The Autumn season has begun and with that comes seasonal home decor. Decorating your home along with the changing seasons and holidays is an enjoyable pastime. There are a few simple techniques that can be used to make the changing of the decor flow seamlessly along with the seasons.
Using the same interchangeable containers year round can make this process less work and more fun. Wooden wagons (traditionally for garden decor) can also be re purposed for holiday and seasonal displays. These wagons can easily be decorated and placed in the location of your choice. Placing your decoration in and around the wagon and can make a beautiful display. The classic look of the wagon easily fits into any home decor style.
Keeping the decorations more seasonal than holiday allows for the decorations to stay up (tastefully) for longer periods of time. “Autumn” themed decor can stay up from September through the end of December. “Winter” decor could be displayed all the way through February and sometimes March. This technique will cut down on the amount of times the decorations need to be changed and save time that is needed elsewhere.
Staying organized is always the key to decorating for the seasons. Keeping your seasonal and holiday decor in airtight containers with lids is always a good idea. This allows for easy access when the time comes to decorate. Always remember to label clearly. Seasonal and Holiday heirlooms should be packed carefully and if possible separately as to not get broken or lost.
Seasonal and holiday decoration is a fun and creative way to brighten up the changing seasons and the holidays that your home chooses to celebrate.

The kids are going back to school and family schedules will start get more complicated and full. Staying organized is even more important than ever. Organization starts at home. The old quote “a place for everything and everything in its place” is always a good place to begin. The question is how do you stay organized in the simplest way possible.
One of the simplest ways to start back to school organization is by having a designated location for all items that the children need. The spot could be something as simple as a basket where they put their backpacks morning shoes and other items that are needed for their day. Adding the bedtime component of having the children go through all their school belongings the night before to ensure everything is in there basket teaches the children responsibility and makes the morning simpler.
Meals are also a very important and time-consuming activity. Balancing time, nutrition, in good taste is difficult for the majority of parents. Most parents have to make breakfast in the morning and find the time to pack a snack and lunch for their young children to take to school. Organizing your refrigerator so that items are easily found will take some of the frustration out of the process. In addition, setting up daily meals and snacks in plastic baggies so that all they have to do is be taken out and put in a lunch bag would greatly reduce this time consuming but necessary activity. Another plus to organizing in this way that children can help make lunches and snacks by easily taking out the items for their lunch.
Get the kids involved. Assigning age-appropriate tasks to the children in the morning and in the evenings will take some of the work off the parents. Setting up a task list for each child and having them be responsible for those items will make the mornings a little less busy. Some simple task that children can do are picking out their own clothes, personal hygiene, putting all their stuff in there morning basket, and helping pack their lunch bags.
After school is also an important time of the day to stay organized. Having the children go through their bags when they get home and put any important papers in a designated spot for the parent to look at. All homework can also be taken out and put in in the location for homework time shorten’s down the time searching for things later.
School is a wonderful and important time. The school year is also extremely busy but with a few simple organizational tricks it can be much easier for everyone involved.

Everyone knows about spring cleaning but end of summer cleaning is an important task too. The summer is over and school is getting ready to start. It is a wonderful transition time to do a “quick” over all of you home.
1} Start with you closet. It is a pretty basic idea but a very important one. Divide everyone’s clothes into three piles – Storage, donate, and throw away. Clothes you are still using but will eventually store for the summer can go last. Clothes you no longer wear and will not last another season need to be either donated or thrown away. Slimming out the closet will make space in your home and is a wonderful way to cut down on clutter quickly.
2} Do a deep clean on the floors and walls. Move the furniture, take the photos down, and take everything out of the cupboards. Performing a deep on walls and floors and the corners of your home freshens up your living space. In addition, when the cold weather kicks in and the family is kept inside more it will help keep the cabin fever to a minimum.
3} Start washing your winter bedding and clothes. Take out all your heavy blankets, coats, clothes, hats, gloves etc and wash them now. This way they have a chance to air out. In addition, it will be warm enough (if you have space) to line dry the items.
The key is being prepared and not waiting until the last minute. Unfortunately, Winter comes faster then we like and stays longer the many of us want.
