5 Essentials for a Cozy + Organized Home this Fall

It’s really starting to feel like fall here in good ol’ Colorado. Football is back on the TV, the temperatures are getting cooler, especially in the morning, school routines are back in full swing, and the leaves are even starting to change. In fact, we have leaves falling from a few of the trees in our front yard. Ready or not, fall is comin’ my friends. So today I thought it might be fun to share five essentials for a cozy and organized home this fall. I don’t about you, but as soon as September rolls around I always have the itch to get organized for the new school year. And of course fall is about all things cozy, so today I’m combining the two and sharing a few of my must-have items!

5 Essentials for a Cozy + Organized Home this Fall

1.New Planner

It’s no secret that I LOVE my Erin Condren LifePlanners–I’ve raved about them many times here on the blog over the past several years! And fall is always the time of year that I order a new one. There’s just something about a fresh new planner to help keep me organized, especially when we’re getting back into the routine of school. I just got my shiny new 2019-2020 planner and I looooove it. There are a few new extra’s that come with the LifePlanners this year and I think it’s my favorite one EVER.

Review of the new 2019-2020 Erin Condren Planner

How cute is this fruity, lemon design?! I love the vintage-y look to it and the colors are so cheerful. Last year I did a solid black cover, so this time around I was feeling like something a little more colorful. And I customized it with my name.

This year they added in two extra writing pages before each month, which I am SO excited about. I love this space to write down goals, important events, or just anything important or special I need to remember for the coming month. (PS: the huge EC Friends + Family sale just started today so everything is 25% off!!)

2. Cozy Slippers

Yep, I’ve already busted out the slippers over here. The mornings and evenings have gotten pretty chilly, so it was definitely time. These are hands down my favorite slippers ever! They are so comfy and warm–I literally wear them every single day during the winter. Plus they are super affordable! If you’re in between sizes I’d suggest going up. See them here.

3. Yummy Candles

You can’t have fall without a cozy smelling house. That’s just my opinion, but I’m pretty sure it’s the law. I LOVE burning yummy candles in our home year round, but fall seems like THE candle season to me. Of course my favorite right now is my beloved Warm Caramel Crumble, which I created in collaboration with Antique Candle Co. It’s the perfect yummy, cozy smell for fall. It’s basically like you’ve been baking delicious pies all day long!

4. Wall Calendar

Another great way to get organized for fall is with a family wall calendar. I just ordered this one and I love the size of it. This is much larger than most of the wall calendar’s I’ve had before, which is really nice. I hung it up in our dining room so we could all see what we have coming up each month. It’s a great way to keep “all the things” organized!

5. Chunky Knit Throw Blankets

If you want to create a cozy home for fall, just add lots of soft, chunky knit throw blankets! This will add tons of texture to any space and it’s a really great way to “fall-ify” a room without pumpkins or traditional fall decor. This cream colored chunky knit blanket is one of my favorites. I also have this one, which is the PERFECT blanket to snuggle up with on a cool night. Highly recommend it! It also comes in several color options.

More Throw Blankets I Love:

Fall is such a fun season and in a way everything feels brand new this time of year. I don’t know if it’s just because of the new school year or what, but I definitely sense more energy in the air. I might be crazy, but that’s the vibe I get anyway! I love making the house cozy and more organized in September, so I hope this helped if you enjoy doing the same!! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. You are super cool. xo

  • Mom finished her first 10k ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป It was such a fun day & Iโ€™m honestly so glad I decided to challenge myself & do this. Sure, it was only 6.2 miles, but this race (and all of my running leading up to it) was one of the first things Iโ€™ve done for myself in a loooooong time. My health has totally been on the back burner since having my third baby. But three months ago I started running to help with my anxiety & worry-about-all-the-things syndrome. I fell in love & itโ€™s been SO good for me. Running is one of my favorite things to do now ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I want to encourage all of my fellow mamaโ€™s out there to make time for yourself. Do something for YOU. Take the class. Book the ticket. Go for the run. You are worth it! โค๏ธโค๏ธ
  • Cheers to the weekend, coffee in bed + sunshine in the forecast ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโ˜€๏ธ Our snow is melting, which is GOOD news because my first 10K is tomorrow. Eeeek! Fingers crossed I can make it through with my old lady hip๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’จHappy weekend buddies! โค๏ธ http://liketk.it/2FL0i #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ltkhome
  • Breaking News: It snowed in Colorado today โ„๏ธโ„๏ธ Normally Iโ€™d be less than thrilled about this kind of thing, but I figure why not have a little fun. Sometimes you just gotta accept what you canโ€™t change & make the best of it, right?! Besides, doing a live weather report in the freezing snow is pretty fun. (watch my stories if you missed it!) Happy almost-weekend buddies! โค๏ธ
  • Itโ€™s totally normal to carry around a pumpkin in October, right?! And by normal I mean awkward. Because thatโ€™s what I do best. Clearly. ๐Ÿ™ˆ I shared a quick decorate with me video in stories yesterday + we styled this cabinet for fall ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚ I also have a new blog post up today & itโ€™s 10 affordable fall finds from Amazon. I found some GOOD stuff + itโ€™s all super affordable. Head to the blog to check it out! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป http://liketk.it/2FFiR #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
  • Cozy Monday night views ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ We just had homemade pizza for din din + now itโ€™s time for cozy clothes & football. Not too shabby to start the new week!! โค๏ธ http://liketk.it/2FCNz #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Snug as a bug in the coziest weekend spot ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‚ I finally got the back patio spiffied up for fall & this is officially my new favorite spot to hang out. Letโ€™s just hope I can keep those new mums alive for more than a few days ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ Hope you all had the best weekend! http://liketk.it/2FAOU #liketkit @liketoknow.it
