Our summer of rain and heat may finally be over. Although there has not been a killing frost, the cooler weather is a welcome change. It’s time to clean out the closet, dig out the sweatshirts, flannels, and sweaters. Luckily for me this just means moving long sleeve items to a more prominent place. Having a nice sized closet is a must in any home.

Labor Day began as a day to celebrate the American worker.
