September Organization and Home Repair Checklist [printable]


Even though summer is almost over, I’m guessing there’s still stuff that needs to be done around the house. Getting and keeping your home in good working order can seem like an overwhelming task  {something always seems to need fixing}, but with this organization and home repair checklist you can tackle it without stress {giggle}.  Print the free download by clicking the link under the image below.

There’s nothing I’d rather do in September than soak up the last lazy days of summer, which makes the thought of cleaning low on my want-to-do-list. So, I made the September organization and home repair checklist is easy on the “to-do’s”.  Take the time to relax before it’s back to the grind!  I’ve included very few tasks this month because I figure if I’m unmotivated to clean, you probably are too!

4. Sale Items:

This month is a great time to buy items that go on sale in August summer apparel and back-to-school supplies. Now this the time to get them at discounted prices.

  • Summer related gear ~ Summer type apparel and gear typically gets discounted heavily after Labor Day, so now is the time to pick up those summer items you’ve had your eye on. You’ll be able to find discounts on men’s clothing, women’s clothing, children’s clothing, outdoor gear, and even designer clothing!
  • Grills ~ September is a GREAT time to cash in on discounted grills as well as grilling utensils.  Since September is still a great time to grill, enjoy some BBQ’s through the fall!
  • TV’s ~ Great deals on TV’s can be found in September. Who knew, right? Of particular note are 32″ TV’s, perfect for dorm rooms or smaller spaces.
  • Older iPhones ~ Apple usually introduces new iPhone models in September, so older models can be found at a discount making way for the new edition!
  • Mattresses ~ You’ll be able to find great deals on mattresses during Labor Day sales!
  • Patio Furniture ~Patio furniture can be found at the lowest prices of the year in September, so if you need a new set or just want to spruce up your old set with new pieces, now is the time to act!
  • Appliances ~ Labor Day offers great sales on appliances if you need a new one this month.
