Prepping for Fall Room by Room

Mrs. Fields Secrets Prepping for Fall
Tomorrow marks the official beginning of fall and I’ve got a busy weekend ahead getting the house ready to transition to a new season with a few simple tasks for each area of the house. I plan to crank up some music and dig in as a family to get the jobs done. Here’s what I’ve got planned:


Dining Room
  • Polish silver
  • Wash china (I’ll be using it frequently in the coming months)
  • Take inventory of napkins and tablecloths (no surprises come Thanksgiving!)

Family Room

  • Vacuum dust and cobwebs from fireplace
  • Set out throw blankets in a basket
  • Refresh coffee table books


  • Wipe down window sills and check for drafts
  • Add blankets to bedding
  • Replace any old, flat, or stained pillows


  • Store beach and pool gear
  • Test snow blower and leaf blower
  • Sweep


  • Change furnace filter
  • Check windows for drafts
  • Set out mice traps


  • Clean out, reorganize, and restock cupboards
  • Launder bath mats and rugs
  • Replace hand soaps with autumn-inspired scents

What about you, how will you get your house ready for fall?

    I am excited about the fall. Hopefully we will have some cool weather. It has been so hot this summer and I can’t wait to get up in the morning and hug myself in my fluffy pink robe.

    Also the chance to have a fire going – something so inviting.
