17 Expert Ways to Get Your Portland Home Organized Before Fall

Hello, Portland homebuyers and homeowners! I’m Peter Cutile, your trusted real estate partner. If you've recently purchased a home or are looking to streamline your current living space before the vibrant hues of autumn take over, this blog post is for you. Let's delve into the realm of home organization with a seasonal twist - preparing your house for the fall.

  1. Declutter the Entryway: Autumn often brings an influx of outerwear into our homes. As suggested by Real Simple, getting rid of unnecessary items in your entryway can help accommodate the seasonal essentials without chaos.

  2. Organize Your Wardrobe: With fall comes the need for warmer clothes. Organized Interiors recommends a seasonal swap of your wardrobe to make room for the cozy sweaters and boots.

  3. Get Your Kitchen Ready: A clean and organized kitchen is the key to easy fall meals and holiday baking. According to Real Simple, decluttering your pantry, refrigerator, and cabinets can make your kitchen more functional.

  4. Prep Your Living Room: Camille Styles' professional organizer suggests focusing on living areas where you'll spend more time indoors. Streamline your belongings and add cozy elements to create a serene atmosphere.

  5. Tidy the Garage: Fall is an ideal time to organize your garage, as suggested by Twelve On Main. Make space for the items you'll need for the colder months while storing summer items properly.

  6. Declutter the Attic: Before storing your summer items in the attic, ensure it's clutter-free. The tips from Clean Organized Family Home can help you achieve a well-organized attic.

  7. Organize Outdoor Equipment: According to Making Lemonade, it's the perfect time to declutter and organize your gardening tools, patio furniture, and BBQ equipment.

  8. Prepare Your Home Office: As the days become shorter, ensuring your home office is well organized can boost productivity. Include desk organization and proper lighting for those darker fall days.

  9. Child's Room Cleanup: With the school year in full swing, having an organized space can help your kids stay focused on their studies. Create dedicated spaces for their schoolwork, crafts, and games.

  10. Guest Room Revamp: If you plan to have family or friends visiting during the upcoming holiday season, now is a great time to declutter and prepare your guest room.

  11. Bathroom Organization: An organized bathroom can make daily routines smoother. Consider adding extra storage for fall and winter skincare essentials.

  12. Pantry Preparation: Stock your pantry with fall staples and ensure everything is well organized and easily accessible for those hearty autumn meals and holiday baking sessions.

  13. Mudroom Makeover: Mudrooms tend to become dumping grounds for all sorts of items. With the onset of wetter weather, consider adding additional storage solutions for coats, boots, and umbrellas.

  14. Laundry Room Layout: Adjust your laundry room setup to accommodate heavier fall and winter garments.

  15. Craft Space Cleanup: With the holiday season approaching, having an organized craft space can make your DIY projects a breeze.

  16. Basement Organization: Basements often become a catch-all for items that don't have a designated place. A well-organized basement can free up space for indoor recreational activities during the cooler months.

  17. Gardening Gear Storage: After the final autumn yard cleanup, ensure your gardening tools are cleaned and stored properly.

Organizing your home in preparation for the fall not only offers a cleaner living space but can also significantly enhance the appeal of your home if you're considering selling.
