Schedule maintenance for the chimney and heating system. Keeping on top of maintenance for chimneys and heating systems is essential, both for safety and efficiency. If you use a wood stove or fireplace, have it cleaned and inspected before using it this fall.
Get cozy with fall textiles. Mark the day you feel that first nip in the air by swapping out your summery pillows and lightweight blankets for thicker, fluffier versions. Choosing the same size pillow inserts for all seasons allows you to just switch the covers, saving space and money.
