In between the Halloween preparation, the Thanksgiving preparation, the anxiety over the fact that Christmas decorations are showing up at stores before Halloween is over, anyone can easily forget to prepare house and home for the winter season. But fast approaching is a drop in temperatures, fewer sunny days and a long list of things to do.
While you’re thinking about dressing up as a witch or a ghoul for Halloween, don’t forget to dress up your closet and bedroom for the upcoming winter months! Green Earth Bamboo offers a range of decorative bedding including 100% organic cotton block print quilts, luxurious silk bedding and thermo-regulating bamboo sheets to keep you warm when it’s cold outside.
Trade in shorts and t-shirts for winter wear too! Layering with bamboo wraps keeps a wardrobe fresh and winter-friendly. Bamboo wide leg pants are perfect for work or play and a flirty bamboo maxi skirt is ideal for a cold-weather date night snuggled by a fire. If you’re feeling really crafty, make your own bamboo wrap for the holiday season!
Other essential to-do’s for the upcoming winter months include:
Planting for growth: Planting in the cold? Actually, yes, the months before winter provide a stress-free time for growth so go ahead and over seed or patch your lawn. If you want to switch up your landscape, whether it’s a rose garden or a bamboo garden, the ground is moist enough now to transplant those plants in the garden.
Tune up the furnace (or boiler): If you live in colder regions, this essential piece of equipment is about to get a lot of use. Have it tuned up or at the very least replace the filters.
Audit your energy: It’s easier to detect heat loss in a house when it’s colder outside so invite the energy auditors with their infrared guns into your house to see how you could save heat and money this winter.
Get your car prepped too: Tough driving conditions take a toll on standard and hybrid cars. Have the battery, antifreeze level, thermostat, heater and brakes checked out. And take a look at the tires – replace them if the treads are worn or upgrade to snow tires. And just in case you get stuck in a snowstorm, make sure all the lights are working including the emergency lights.
More wardrobe-readying tips: Keep a wardrobe streamlined by purchasing quality winter boots and shoes – now is the time to check for strained seams and worn soles and take to a cobbler if needed. Check your favorite winter accessories too. Gloves and scarves should be gently washed and repaired if needed. Accessorize your accessories with this year’s trends by adding your own felt patterns or beading.
