42 Fall Cleaning Duties: Maintain your home with this Fall Cleaning Checklist

 



When does it feel like Fall to you?

For me, it’s that sudden shift in temperature, where the weather drops about 10 degrees and I find myself grabbing a cardigan on my way out the front door for school drop-off each morning. 

And when the air changes, I feel a shift happen within myself, too.

Something about the sudden chill of Fall air breathes new life into me.

I find myself looking around with a pair of fresh eyes – ready to bring about some change in our life.

While I take on a few decorating projects each season, I try to use some of that recharged-batteries feeling towards the cleaning tasks I need to do to help maintain our home as well.

And I’m sharing that list with you to help you maintain your home better as well…
