You get one extra day this weekend. You could spend the entire glorious day on your couch… or you could decide that this weekend, you will resist the call of Netflix and finally get something done that’s been on your list forever. Here’s our take on three great ways you can use the next three days.
Fix a few things
Fix that one thing that’s driving you crazy. You know, that shelf you never finished, the art you never hung, the door sagging on its hinge, the lighting you actually need an electrician to install. Then start your fall annoyance-free.
Tidy up the closets
Average cost to hire a home organizer: $40/hour
The holidays are coming, meaning a whole lot of stuff is about to enter your life. Before that happens, let a home organizer sort out the stuff that’s already crammed in your closets and cabinets and office. And make sure you get rid of the clutter for real. A junk removal specialist can take away the stuff you’re not keeping for $135 on average.
Look more professional
The start of fall is a great time to invest in your professional self — starting with replacing that LinkedIn profile pic you took with your webcam years ago and never changed. Instead, clean up your online persona with a professional headshot.
You can look better in real life too by hiring a workwear stylist. They can help you figure out what you need, where to get it, and how to make it work with what you already have. And they’ll keep you from making some classic shopping mistakes. It costs about $75 per hour on average.
