Getting your home ready for the holidays

Warm Holiday HomeOh yeah, the holidays are right around the corner. Its going to be November. We’re turning the clocks back. Boy, it just snuck up on us this year, didn’t it?

Here are some things you should be thinking about getting done this week –

Cleaning windows. Winter is gloomy enough without having to look out grimy windows too! Its amazing how much brighter and fresher your home feels when the windows are clean.

Got any decorating projects you’ve been meaning to finish before the holidays? Time to get moving. I’ve had more than one year where I was finishing up the night before Thanksgiving. Not fun!

Do a thorough deep clean through the house during the next week so your work load, and stress load are lighter. Get those corners and baseboards. Wash curtains and throw rugs.

If there is even a possibility that you might have overnight guests, make sure you have enough presentable bedding and towels on hand and clean.

Check that you have enough silverware and glasses. Check your tablecloths.

Start buying non-perishable items that you will need. It will be less stress on you and your budget if you start picking things up now.

Same goes for Christmas presents. Start keeping your eyes open for gift ideas and deals!

Every little thing you can knock off now will mean less stress later. And that will make your holidays a whole lot brighter!
