Clutter Buddy...Pairing Up To Purge!

Tackling a messy garage or taming piles of paperwork is generally the last thing you want to do when Friday finally rolls around. We get it. Hanging with friends or hitting the park with family is infinitely more appealing than decluttering and cleaning. So consider toughing through your chores with a buddy. Teaming up with a helpful ally keeps you honest, makes the work go faster and adds a little fun to the equation.

Why a Buddy?

So Long Summer: How To Store Summer Gear

Before you know it, cool weather will spell retirement for boogie boards, beach umbrellas and other summer gear. Start your fall on an organized note with our tips for storing seasonal summer items.

Beachy Clean
Before storing beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys, give each item a cold water rinse and a good scrub. Next, allow items to thoroughly dry in the sun to avoid mildew and prevent sand and salt from corroding items during the off-season. Likewise, hose down patio furniture and clean outdoor pillows with a mixture of water and mild detergent. Scrub mildew stains with a stiff brush; allow all items to dry in the sun, then store indoors in a garage or basement.

Once the summer BBQ season is over, it's time to thrill your grill. Dismantle and clean all the gunk off, finishing up with a light coating of oil spray to repel winter moisture. Then store your grill in an indoor, protected environment such as a garage. The exception to this storage rule? Propane tanks: safety dictates well-ventilated, protected outdoor storage versus indoors.
