September is almost winding down to the end and October is right around the corner. For me, October is the month when I start preparing my home for the holidays.
Fall is my favorite season of the year, and I love decorating my home with fall things. I have just started unpacking my fall decorations and I will be placing them around my home in the next few days. This is also a great time to clean my home. As I decorate each room, I also complete a deep cleaning of that room. I don’t decorate every room in my home, so this is really not that big of a job.
I always begin in my living room. This is the room that will be decorated from now until after Christmas. Until Thanksgiving, I will keep a fall theme throughout my living room and kitchen. The weekend of Thanksgiving, it will all get changed. That is the weekend that I begin my Christmas decorating.
I have found that if I deep clean the rooms that I decorate with fall items, decorating for Christmas is much easier. My house will still be relatively clean, and when I remove the fall decorations, I can begin right away with the Christmas decorations.
I have also found that once Christmas is over, my home is ready for another deep cleaning. This works out well though because while I am packing up Christmas decorations, I can also deep clean each room as I go and this works out really well.
