Oh-Oh. Its been a crazy week, and company is coming this weekend?
Here’s how you can make our home look presentable fast…
1 – Eat a quick dinner. My favorite quick dinner is a steak or a pork chop with either a salad or some steamed broccoli and a (micro) baked potato. 15 minutes to the table and not many dishes. Get the dishes done. Wipe down the stove, cabinets, and counters.
2 – Pick up all clutter. All clothes put away. OK, everything laying around needs to be put away. I keep a bankers box on hand to stash all my papers. Don’t be spending time sorting stuff. Have everyone chip in and put their stuff away. Give yourself 20 minutes.
3 -Quick dust. You can cheat and feather dust bedrooms. Focus mostly on the public areas where people will be hanging out. You can use a slightly damp cloth to brush off upholstery.
4 – Vacuum all floors.
5 – Quick mop. Hand wash edges and corners if needed.
6- Clean the bathroom when you’re done in there.
7- Walk in your front door and take a good look. Fix anything that doesn’t look good.
Whew! Enjoy your company!
From now on, follow the system so you don’t have to stress like this again…
