    This a really a great list Danelle! Thanks for taking the time to create and share it with us. It will certainly come in handy as the air cools. You listed a lot of items I never would have thought of, so when I read them I had one of those, “Oh yeah, I need to do that” kind of moments. Great job!

    bat mats work better than bath towels in the car. the rubberized backing prevents any moisture from seeping through onto the car floor. i bought a bunch in the same color as our van interior, so you can hardly even tell they are there. also great for springtime when everything is muddy.

    Us MNians are pretty much the same way. How much snow did you get? I am not sure I am ready to let my fall colors go. But I do love winter.

    This is a really comprehensive list- I love it. My favorite is to put the ice scraper back in the car. Because we keep the car in the garage we usually discover that we need it when we are out somewhere and need it!

    It is fun to read this list, but most of it, we don’t need down here in Houston. One item, though (number 63), rings a bell when you are talking about moving potted plants around. They can be heavy and hard to move, but a Bigslider Utility Mover takes the strain out of the job, in a cold climate or a hot one! Get more information at http://www.bigslider.com.
