Ahhhhh the sweet smell of Fall. Arguably the favorite of all seasons (if you’re lucky enough to live in a place that gets to experience seasons, that is). It’s the time of year that brings end-of-summer relief for parents, holiday excitement for kids, and most importantly- yummy Fall foods. I mean, who doesn’t LOVE the taste of a Pumpkin Spice Latte and the feel of an oversized chunky knit sweater? Only true fools can’t comprehend the epicness and pure perfection of Autumn.
So how do you prepare yourself and your home for Fall? Although it isn’t the start of the new year, it is the beginning of the warm colors, colder weather, delicious foods, and football season. Everything feels new again, such as a new school year or a busy holiday season at work. In order to focus on being your best self and coming back from the slow, easy days of summer with a true bang, try some of our tips below:
Organizing Around the Home:
A clean home equals a clear mind. It always feels good to have a fresh slate for the new season, so start your Fall prep around the house to get the ball rolling.
Prep your lawn or patio: Rake those leaves, clear the built up dirt, and plant some Spring bulbs to have something to look forward to!
Tackle that closet: You know, that one project you’ve been putting off forever. The time is NOW!
Put some fun Fall themed decor around the house: Try a great tablescape of Fall scented candles, silk leaves, and maybe even some decorative gourds.
More Specifically…Getting Your Kitchen Ready:
We all know the kitchen is commonly regarded as "The Heart of the Home" whether we are preparing a simple breakfast meal or that annual family gathering.
Reorganize your tools, pots, and pans: Take it ALL out, and wipe down those shelves! You’re going to be shocked when you see that built up dust and crumbs.
Stock your pantry with Fall food staples: Fill up on canned goods such as beans, canned pumpkin, pasta sauce and noodles, dried fruits and assorted nuts.
This year sure has been tough on SO many levels, so now is as good of a time as ever to do some personal upgrades to your mind and body. Clear out the darkest corners of your thoughts and purge some of the things you would rather leave in the first half of this year.
Try a new, restorative workout: Switch from high-intensity running and biking to a more “zen” type of activity, such as yoga or pilates. It is important to stay active to be in optimum shape, both mentally and physically.
Build new social connections: Being in active, healthy relationships with other people reduces anxiety and depression, strengthens the immune system, and can even increase your lifespan!
Get in that “me” time: YOU are the most important person in your life. Treat yourself to a good book, meditation, and even take some time away from your electronics. Focusing on yourself will enhance your quality of life. You’ll thank yourself later!
Now that you’ve got the tools to get into the spirit of the season, you can really make
this Fall the best yet. You now have a clear and refreshed mind to match that fun and festive home environment. Happy Fall!

"MeatCrafters participates in the Saturday Rockville Pike market and the Sunday Bethesda market. Their bratwurst is fantastic!!! I say that as someone who both grew up in Wisconsin and has lived in Germany. Their landjaeger is also great, and something I've not really seen outside of Wisconsin."
