8 MUST READ POSTS TO GET YOUR HOME READY FOR HOLIDAY GUESTS
Before you dig into the content a couple of things to remember:
ENLIST THE FAMILY TO HELP
It’s their home too and nobody wants to be humiliated or leave guests thinking, “Boy this house needs a good cleaning.”
Why be embarrassed?
Have the kids clean their rooms and get the hubs to pick up his clutter.
Once they take care of their specific areas and messes, make it clear you’re all in this together and that you need help. There is NO reason you should handle it alone.
For more suggestions on how to make this happen read: Get Your Family On Board With Cleaning.
LEAVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TIME
Depending on the condition of your home you might be able to get it up to par in a weekend or it may take longer. Time is running out, so go grab your calendar and figure out how much time you really need to get the house in order.
Remember to do all the major cleaning BEFORE the decorations go up.
If you run out of time, use the shortcuts provided in What To Clean Before Guests Arrive. This gives you a different approach to tackling the holiday cleaning.
