Getting Ready for the Warmer Weather

(This is a collaboration post)

With summer just around the corner it is time to make a few changes. For example, the garden furniture needs to be washed down, so it is ready for those long summer evenings when we can enjoy eating outside. We also need to update our wardrobes, so we have enough clothes to take us through the first few weeks of sunshine.

Each time the seasons change you get the chance to go through everything and throw away anything that no longer fits, and replace them. 

Time to buy t-shirts and shirts
Before it gets really warm you want to make sure that everyone has some new summer clothes. It is time to buy t-shirts and short-sleeved shirts.

Right now there is a good selection available in the shops, so now is definitely the time to go shopping. Buying early allows you to grab the best designs before they sell out. If you are looking for something zany and fun you will not be disappointed because there are plenty of this type of t-shirt available, this year.

Shorts and lightweight trousers
You should also go through the kid´s wardrobe to check that they have enough shorts, skirts and lightweight trousers. It is better to shop for them now, so that you have them to hand for the next hot day. Nobody wants to be traipsing around the shops looking for shorts instead of taking advantage of the sun and playing in the park.

Check everyone´s swimwear
One item a lot of people forget when they are updating their wardrobes, is swimwear. Kids grow fast, so there is a good chance that the swimming costume, or swim shorts, they wore last year will no longer fit. Get them to try theirs on, and if they look a bit tight replace them. Buying them now will save you money, as well as ensure that you get the biggest choice. This is because a lot of retailers put the price of these items up later in the season, when everyone is going on their summer holidays.

Spring clean the house
If you have the time, and energy, go through each room and give it a deep clean. You will feel really good once you have done it, and will be able to relax knowing that everything is as it should be. Right now, it is warm enough to open the windows, and leave them open for a few hours, so this time of the year is ideal for deep cleaning the house.

You do not have to wear yourself doing the whole house in one go. It is much better to pace yourself and thoroughly clean one room at a time. If you do it all at once you will only run out of energy and end up making a poor job of the last rooms that you do.

I love this time of the year, because it gives you a chance to get a fresh start, and I hope that this post inspires you to do the same.
