Paint a room. The perfect time to start a new paint project is when the kids won't be beneath your feet or putting their little paws on your fresh paint job. Maybe you're ready for an updated wall color in your kitchen? Because cabinetry usually takes up most of the space, you could probably knock the whole thing out in a day.
Organize. Get your kids' rooms in order so they can learn to keep themselves organized at the start of the new school year. Teach them the motto "A place for everything and everything in its place."
Work on the garage. Although this may not sound like much fun, it's time to think about cleaning out the garage before winter. Organize and pack up the summer toys and gear now before the weather starts getting colder and you want to avoid this task at all costs.
Fix the driveway. Maybe you've been putting off having your driveway repaired or redone. Early fall, when's it's cooling off but not yet cold, is the best time to schedule this kind of project. My own driveway project is scheduled to start in two weeks.
