Preparing Your Summer Home for the Season

· Seasonal Organizing

Now that summer is upon us, it’s time to prepare your vacation house for a wonderful season.  Here are my tips for getting your house in tip top shape:

  • Make sure all appliances, large and small, are in working order.
  • Replace light bulbs as necessary.
  • Wash all linens and towels.  Inspect for holes and stains.
  • Open windows to let fresh air into the house.
  • Put a load of dishes, silverware, and kitchenware into the dishwasher.
  • Tend to broken window screens and wash all windows.
  • Wipe cupboards, fridge shelves, stovetop, and appliances clean.
  • Take outdoor furniture out of storage and check for damage.  Replace if necessary.
  • Check expiration dates on sunblock and other toiletries.  Replace anything that has expired.
  • Check the wi-fi connection, cable, and music system.
  • Purchase flowers for the porch and the indoors.
  • Stock up on food and beverages.
  • Pour yourself a glass of wine and settle in for a great summer!
