Summer Home Organizing Tips

1. Make Your Summer Calendar

You will feel more prepared if you plan ahead for your summer calendar. It will also prevent events from sneaking up. This is a great opportunity to give your family some vacation days. Summer should be relaxing.

You should make space on your calendar for lazy summer days or spur-of-the-moment fun. Your summer calendar should be visible to everyone. This will allow everyone to know what’s happening in the summer.

2. Get Summer Essentials Now

Make sure you have enough space for your summer necessities in your home. This is the perfect time to stockpile sunscreen, aloe, bug repellent, first aid, and other essentials. Are you sure that you have enough beach towels? Are there enough life jackets? Swimsuits? You want to be able to store these items before the summer starts, and you also want to have somewhere to store them for easy access during summer.

3. Take Winter Away, Pack for Summer

Winter stuff takes up so much space! You will need to pack away some winter items if you are trying to organize your house for the summer. You may need to move winter items that are taking up space in your entry or dresser, as well as your garage, and store them.

Don’t forget to get rid of any winter items you don’t need. You don’t need to store things that you don’t use anymore.

4. Make summer rules or activities for your kids

Summer is the best time for home organizing especially if your children will be staying home. You might want to create a summer chore list or chart. You can give your children tasks to complete each week or day to help run the household. You can always hire a professional organizer to help you out.

5. How to organize your outdoor space for summer

It doesn’t feel like it’s summer until your patio furniture is set up. This is a great opportunity to clean your patio or deck, wash your tablecloths and get ready for summer by setting up your outdoor space.

6. Encourage children to entertain themselves

Contrary to what your children may believe, you aren’t a circus master. While it is great to take the kids on outings, it doesn’t mean that you have to entertain them every day.

Encourage your children to learn to play independently. This is a great way to help them develop independence and creativity.

7. Simplify dinnertime

It’s not something you want to do after a hot summer day. Make sure you have easy freezer meals that can be thrown in the crockpot or grilled.
