This review was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management, Febreze and Swiffer I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
For the 16 years that we were a homeschooling family, fall was the start of our new year. Forget January 1st, the new school year was when we started our new schedules for schooling, extra-curriculars and church activities. Now that the kids are adults I still like to give our home a fall reset. Here in Florida we don’t get the cooler temperatures till the end of October. We don’t get leaves changing colors or lots of other distinctly “fall” things either. This is why I manufacture some fall in my wardrobe and decor to remind me what season it is.
This year our fall reset finds us in the middle of a living room makeover. In August we bought a new couch, loveseat and huge ottoman. Next we want to paint and then get new side tables, lights and curtains. This is a slow process and while I’m on the lookout for the new accessories, the painting will have to wait until it is cool enough to open the windows.
Here are a few tips on how you can give your home an affordable Fall Reset.
- De-Clutter-It has been about 6 months since Spring cleaning. We all have places that catch all the items that don’t have permanent homes. While you are de-cluttering make sure you fill up a box or bag with items that can be handed down or donated.
- Deep clean the floors– I have laminate in my living room and hall and it needs to be swept daily. I also use my new and improved Swiffer Wet Jet to keep my floors clean and shiny.
- Add some fall decor-Decorate with pumpkins, fall colored leaves and pinecones to bring the season inside.
- Refresh the air-In my house I live with my dog, my husband and my adult son. All 3 of those things bring smells into my home that are not pleasant. Thankfully I have the woodsy Big Sur scented Febreze Fabric Refresher and Febreze Air Effects. With just a few squirts my home smells more like a forest and less like a locker room.
