True Value provided gift card for my participation in this article.
With fall here that means one thing, winter is right around the corner. Fall is the time we have to prepare for the cold, ice and snow.
There is plenty to do such as putting away outdoor furniture, replacing weather stripping around our doors and windows, cleaning leaves out of gutters, covering plants, raking leaves, touching up paint, getting windows cleaned outdoors, putting the storm windows in (we have some old windows still), checking the heating system and the list goes on and on.
I also like to spruce up my home, deep cleaning every nook and cranny in my home before the brutal temperatures arrive. This includes cleaning the carpets, decorating with my seasonal decorations and adding some color to the living area downstairs with fresh flowers. Weekends are the ideal time for me to clean and make sure my home is winter ready.

I’m in full gear here getting ready for snow. I was just looking at the forecast for my area in western NY and they are calling for snow two days next week, I better get a move on it because I’m not ready yet.
