It’s supposed to be the most relaxing time of the year, so how come you feel so disorganized? Summer means day trips, vacations and outdoor activities. There’s going to be lots of fun, but you’re also going to need to do a lot of planning. Whether you’re getting your year round home ready for the summer, vacationing, renting a beach home or planning to go to a summer home it’s time to get organized and Box&Co wants to help.
Getting off to a Hot Start
Wherever you’re staying this summer you’ll need to get a jump on things. The website you start by putting together a calendar of everything that going to happen this season: When to pack for vacations; when the kids need to bring equipment to sports activities; when they are attending day camp or sleep away camp.
Once you know what you’re doing it is time to take care of what you need. There are items you need to have handy to keep things running smoothly. If you’re storing these items, it’s time to get them back. Break out the summer dresses, beach towels, swimsuits, sunscreen, bug repellent, golf clubs and fishing equipment.
Tackling Summer Home Organization
If you’re specifically going to a summer beach home, in addition to bringing towels and swimsuits, the Washington Post reminds you not to forget about things like beach chairs, coolers, table linens, kitchen supplies, and an outdoor hose to wash off the sand. You’re also going to want to think about night activities, so bring games, stock up the bar and because not everything is fun and games, bring the laundry baskets and detergent.
Even if you’re staying home and not going to a beach house, summer is a great time to get organized. Now that school is out, it’s time for all traces of the school year to vanish. If you haven’t already done so, go retrieve your grilling equipment.
Summer is also time to declutter. Oprah.com suggests doing a purge.
- Get the winter coats out of the closet.
- Make sure to clean your clothing before you store it for summer.
- Don’t just straighten up by moving stuff from one place to another.
- Create spaces for where they belong (bills and papers don’t belong in the kitchen, cutlery does).
- Get the winter gear out of the way and clear the surfaces.
If you’re putting away winter clothes the Spruce advises you to go through all of your clothing and see what really needs to be kept. Are you still wearing those coats and sweaters? It’s also a good idea to get an eco-friendly moth repellant.
