Fall Home Checklist: Part One
3. Refresh your bedroom for fall. It’s time to find those flannel sheets and cozy blankets — even if you don’t need them quite yet, you will be grateful to have them at hand on that first really chilly night, whenever it comes. While you are sorting your bedding, take the time to rotate your mattress, launder your mattress pad, and reach all of those under-the-bed dust bunnies.
4. Put some fall-blooming plants on the porch.Sweep away summer sand and dirt, and set out a few pots of chrysanthemums or other late-summer plants in gorgeous fall hues. It’s an affordable way to give your porch a quick fall makeover.
