5 Things to Do This Fall

It’s fall ya’ll! Last Thursday, fall officially began at 10:21 AM. I’m sad to see summer go but the start of a new season means so many new things to do. With every new season comes a bucket list of oh so fall like things to do. Pumpkin picking, apple picking, corn mazes and so so many more fun things. There is always something fun and exciting to do and so many things I haven’t tried yet but this fall, I wanted to share some of the not so obvious things to do.

5 Things to Do This Fall // The Krystal Diaries

Reorganize

Now that the heat scorchers and humidity are nearing an end, this is the perfect time to do some cleaning and reorganizing at home. You won’t melt to death going through junk and putting things away, and it’ll allow you to make room for more stuff before the Holidays roll around. Toss, donate or repurpose items that are just laying around collecting dust. I just put together tons of clothes and shoes to donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Visit a new town

There are so many fun things to try in the fall so why not venture out to a new location and experience fall activities you may not have close by. If you’re able to, dust off that passport and experience another country’s fall weather and activities. Venture out of your comfort zone.

Start a new beginning

Who says you have to wait for the new year to make a resolution? Why not start a new habit now? Been wanting to start a new workout routine but the summer heat kept you down? Well, now it’s cool enough outside to start that new routine. This is the perfect season to get outside and get going.

Experiment with new recipes

With temps cooling down, in most places – sorry Floridians, kitchens aren’t sweltering anymore. So stop using your oven as storage and start testing out those recipes you’ve been pining all summer long.

Catch up on reading

I know everyone thinks summer is the time to read every book you have while laying on the beach but if you’re anything like me, your summers are jam packed. Summer weekends and nights are for spending time with family and friends. Most of the time our schedules clear up a bit during the fall giving you plenty of time to break out those books you’ve been dying to read. I know what I’ll be reading for the next few weeks

Don’t forget, though; it is fall, and that means it’s #basicseason so you must do all of these things surrounded by pumpkin scented everything, apple pies while wearing boots and blanket scarves, OK? As I type this, I’m drinking a PSL and burning a pumpkin apple candle. Embrace the basicness.
What are your plans for this Fall?

    I just reorganized all my closets and put my fall wardrobe in them! Now my closets are so clean, so we will see how long that lasts!

  2. Great list. I need to work on the reorganizing bit but we did just start meal planning and trying to stick to a strict grocery budget so that means try a lot of new recipes. Happy Fall!

  3. I love the idea of reorganizing for fall! The change of seasons always means reorganizing clothes for me, but I think I’ll add a few more things to my list this year. You make a good point about the nice temperatures. My freezer is in dire need of cleaning and reorganizing! Your post was just the motivation I needed! 🙂
    I will definitely take your advice and do my fall reorganizing with a fall-scented candle … and maybe a pumpkin flavored coffee drink to keep me going. 😉

  5. I love the pumpkin theme – makes everything way more cosy 🙂 Finally the time is on again to sit on the sofa, drink tea and read a good book 🙂

    Love the “start a new beginning” suggestion. Often times people put off new things they want to try out or habits they want to establish until the new year. Using the start of fall is just as good. Fall is the perfect time for new beginnings.

    I love the fall! I used to live in Scandinavia and I hated it, but here in California, it is my favourite time of the year. Not too hot, not too cold. Also lovely harvest decorations and pumpkins are every where.

    Fall is one of the best seasons! Great list! I have to work on that re-organizing though. Fall just makes me want to be cozy and lazy out on the porch with my warm cup of tea and with my books 🙂
