Fall is bittersweet for me! I love the changing of leaves, firepits on weekends, making memories with hayrides, and pumpkin picking! The cooler temperatures but an end to my passion for kayaking even though I try to paddle in the cooler weather.
This year with production and shipping delays, I had to start buying Halloween decorations in September and early October. I wanted to do simple fall decorations inside and a few decorations outside, but my 14-year-old son wants to do a Haunted House with pop up tents that will require lots of planning and searching for free or discounted FB groups for extra decorations. This extra decorating doesn’t include the extensive graveyard my husband likes to do in the front yard. This extra shopping requires lists and planning! As an Organizer I thought I was on top of the all the purchases, but this weekend I realized I over purchased some decorations.
All this rambling is to show that no person is perfect, not even a professional organizer. All the planning, and lists creating mistakes can still happen!
Quick Tips for Fall Management:
Schedule 5 minutes in your day to tackle 1 or 2 of these tasks and you will be prepared and not overwhelmed when temperatures drop!
