Replace seasonal decor and dishes. A pared-down cabinet of white dishes and also machine-washable linens feels fresh and simple for summertime. Clear space in your cabinets and simplify your life by storing dishes and decor in darker colors until fall.

Paint the siding. If you have been considering having your house painted this past year, fair weather leaves June a excellent time in which to get it done.

Clean the gutters. Keeping your home’s gutters and downspouts cleared of debris and leaves can assist in preventing damage and leaks.

Manage children’s art and memorabilia. The close of the college year is a natural time to sift through photographs and treasures from the past year. Place a few special pieces in frames, create a scrapbook or electronic photo book, and restrict other items to that which will fit in one smallish storage box.

Clean up kids’ play equipment and assess for security. As play starts to move outside, have a little time to inspect play structures, swing sets and other gear for cracks, tears and other security issues.

Update first aid kits for summertime adventures.
From bicycle rides on water slides, summertime tends to come with a little bit of danger. Be prepared to handle small emergencies using a well-stocked first aid kit at home — and toss another kit in the car for good measure.

Set up a cut-flower station. Whether you are toting home armfuls of flowers from the farmer’s market or cutting in your own garden, a designated flower arranging area is a joy worth making room for. Clear off a little bit of table area, gather your favourite tools and containers, and get to work!

Prep the swimming pool. If you’ve got a pool, be sure to prepare a cleaning and maintenance program for the season ahead.

Inventory seasonal gear. Track down the beach umbrella, camping kit, and interior tube, and give everything a fast cleaning. Schedule any repairs or replacements now.
