The holiday season is quickly approaching, and here in Ohio you may be asking yourself, “How on earth did this happen already?” Whether you’re a new home owner, in the process of selling your house or just happen to live in a home, there’s a good chance you don’t have the time necessary to devote to cleaning the whole place from top to bottom in preparation for guests and festivities. Here are a few tips to help you get by:
Focus on the kitchen, which will be the center of activity and entertainment over the course of the next few months. Now is the time to pitch and organize foods, spices and condiments so you have a clear idea of what you already have and ensure you don’t overspend at an already pricey time of year. Look through the refrigerator and pitch anything more than a week old. You’ll need that space for leftovers! While you’re at it, declutter counters, coffee tables and other surfaces. This will go a long way in giving your home a clean look and also offer the option of having the space to put out a few simple decorations to make your home more festive.
As awkward as the thought is, there’s one room in your house that’s going to receive the lion’s share of extra use as holiday guests come over: the bathroom. Ready your bathroom for guests by getting rid of unused and unwanted products that have lingered untouched for too long. Purchase new towels and toiletries for guests, but keep bathroom decorations to a minimum as moisture and mold create extra work in this area.
This time of year, don’t underestimate the power of simplicity in your home and in your life. Less furniture, decorations and clutter will make your home feel bigger and cleaner, even if it’s neither! Freeing up your time, on the other hand, allows you to truly enjoy your home as well as the friends and loved ones with whom you will share it this season.
