Prep the Outdoors

Today we are getting the outdoors ready for the holidays.

Step 1: Prioritize what outdoor decorations you want to use this year.
Step 2: Get out your outdoor decor and take an inventory of what you have. Untangle and test your lights. Make a list of what you need.
Step 3: Decorate. Ok, it may feel early because we haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving yet. However, you could put up the lights before it gets colder out and just not turn them on until you are ready to acknowledge the holidays. I’m planning on focusing on the lights and just staging my bows, garlands, and wreaths, so I can easily put them up when I get inspired post-Thanksgiving.
Step 4: Clean up your yard. If you haven’t put away your patio furniture or other season items, now is a good time to do it. Spend a little time giving your yard any attention it needs. Clean up your porches and entries to you home.

Don’t forget to fill a bag to donate and make a dish for your freezer!

Happy Organizing!

Colleen
