While prepping for the fall season, I've found myself craving organization and desiring to live with less. I felt an huge sense of relief after tackling my bedroom closets last month and I've noticed a lightness in my step that wasn't there before. Unfortunately, my basement storage remains untouched and I'm eager to set aside time to purge, purge, purge...
I mean, do I really need a bag to hold other bags? Will I ever use those knick knacks wrapped in tissue paper? And, is it absolutely necessary for a young single gal like myself to have 2 Christmas trees and oodles of boxes filled with holiday decorations?

want to need to live with less in storage and more on display. Like this inspiration image above (from Pottery Barn): I love the idea of celebrating the things you love by having a special place for them. I want to enjoy the things I own. What I don't want, is for these things to own me by stealing storage space and weighing me down.
House & Home Editor, Suzanne Dimma, reaffirmed my need for order in her article "The Changing Seasons" for this month's H&H Editor's Page (October 2012 issue). In her write-up, Suzanne puts an unexpectedly creative spin on fall cleaning. I love the sense of possibilities and room for play that she suggests can result from a good clean-up. The article has me completely energized and excited to get to work. All I need to do now is find the time!
What about you? Do you have any fall cleaning planned?
