Try These Quick Ideas To Get Your Home Ready For Summer

Winter is over, spring is here, and summer is on the horizon!

The days of freezing nights, overflowing coat racks, and salt-covered boots are over, at least for now.

It’s time to get your home ready to embrace the warm summer evenings.

Now is the time to start packing away your winter gear to make room for your summer attire.

Box up old sweaters, jackets, and heavy clothes, and make room in your home for all your summer gear.

This could be a fun project to do with your children, and an educational opportunity to teach them about the different seasons.

Don’t forget to change out your heavy winter linens, and replace your warm flannel sheets for a lighter, airy summer set.

Trade in old heavy blankets for a lighter option.

Once your winter gear is stored away, it’s time to open up those windows and let the fresh air in!

Most homes are musty from the winter, and it’s time to air them out.

Of course, this is the perfect time for a deep spring cleaning, and a thorough room by room clean.

Use this as an opportunity to de-clutter and take unwanted items to your local charity.

If you’re planning on grilling outside this summer, use this as a chance to stock up on what you’ll need, whether its charcoal or propane tanks.

You can also get your patio furniture out and start to set up your backyard to enjoy the upcoming summer nights with your family.

Get creative, and decorate your backyard with fun and colorful lights. You can even throw in a few bright pillows and tiki torches.

Be sure to check out thrift stores for good finds, so you can create the perfect outdoor sanctuary without going broke.

If you’re looking to eat healthy this summer, consider saving money by planting your own garden!

May is the perfect time to plant kale, carrots, beets, and broccoli.

By planting a garden, you can use this opportunity to teach your children how to tend a garden and grow their own vegetables.

Make it fun and give your children their own crop to care for.

However, one of the natural drawbacks of summer is all those bugs.

It’s important to keep your family protected from mosquitoes and ticks with a strong bug repellent.

You can purchase a natural bug repellent in the store, or make your own with essential oils, witch hazel, vegetable glycerin and distilled water.

Now is also a good time to check your window screens, and make sure they are free from holes and tears.

Remember ants love to find food sources, so make sure your food items are well sealed in your pantry, and crumbs are cleaned off the floor promptly.

These simple tricks will get you in the summer spirit, while getting your home prepared for the upcoming hot months ahead.

Summer is the perfect chance to relax, unwind, and enjoy being outside with family and friends.

Now that your home is ready, you are ready to enjoy summer to the fullest.
