Fall organizing tips

Spring cleaning may get good press, but we’ve discovered that fall is another popular time to air out your apartment storage spaces.


According to a recent Apartment Guide survey, 80% of people reorganize or clean out their apartment between summer and fall.

The survey also revealed that 39% of people conduct major apartment cleaning once a month, while 31% perform a big apartment clean seasonally. Organizing and putting away clothes topped the list of challenging tasks for about half the respondents.

To help you with your closet freshening efforts this season, Apartment Guide is teaming up with organization expert Lisa Zaslow.

As you switch out summer clothes for your colder-weather wardrobe, Lisa advises that you may be sitting on a stash of cash in the form of old outfits you no longer wear. Why not make some money as you declutter by selling items which are only taking up precious storage space in your apartment? (Hint: you can even sell clothing online!)

Remember, too, that you can save time by making your apartment a little easier to live in. The more effort you put in every day, the less time your cleaning work should take overall.

Before you roll up your sleeves and get to work, take a glance at our Fall Freshening infographic for inspiration!

Client Survey Methodology: The survey was conducted among 1,000 adults in the U.S. The interviews were conducted online by RedShift Research in March 2013 using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas were set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the total populations aged 18 and older. The margin of error at a 95% confidence level is, plus or minus, 3.1 percentage points.
