Summer Home Keeping Tips-July 2015

Hey Y'all!

Greetings from Hotlanta! The heat index today is a steamy 105 degrees and y'all the humidity is higher than a cats back. My hair is a mess right now but no way am I cutting it. I will just have a constant up-do until the weather cools off.

This weekend was a very productive one at the House of Q's. Mr. Q and I did some things around the house that have been on the honey-do list for a while.

I bought this metal piece a few months before we were married and have been meaning to get it on the porch for a while. I like how the color of the metal piece brings out the light color of the brick.


I also took some time on Saturday to deep clean a few areas of the house. Here is the after of the master bath.

Speaking of cleaning, here is a few of my very own summer home keeping tips that you can try in your own home.

  • Clean your pantry and check for expired items- wipe down all shelves and and shelf liners
  • Wash throw pillows and blankets
  • Air out rooms (if you are lucky enough to get a cool day)
  • Wash all window coverings or send them out to be cleaned
  • Sort through closets to clean/donate/repair items (now is a good time to start selling on eBay to make some extra cash for the holidays)
  • Clean and check the fridge for expired items
  • Wash comforters and duvets
  • Vacuum all upholstered couches and chairs 
  • Wash all windows and clean window sills
  • Clean the fireplace or call a professional if needed
One more tip to help you get organized: I found this neat webpage called School-Supply-List.com. Simply enter your zip code and any school in your district will generate. Click the link for your child's school and get the school supply list for his/her classroom. How easy is that? 



Until next time...
