As you're cleaning your home in preparation for holiday parties, overnight guests, and the midnight appearance of Mr. Santa Claus, himself, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. As one mess is cleaned up, another appears, and then on top of that, it's time to wrap some gifts for the office gift exchange! Another mess!
How to keep your sanity (and keep your house clean) during the holidays:
The 3S Plan: Stations, Scheduling, Supplies!
You've done this before, you have a pretty good idea of what the holidays entails. Last-minute gifting, out of town visitors, extravagant appetizers, somebody's gonna get sick, and excessive pine needles.
Prepare Stations around your home that will assist in these various projects and messes. It is easier for kids and guests (and YOU) to clean up if everything is ready.
Many times when we think about cleaning our homes, we get so overwhelmed because we think it will take hours. Just 20 minutes a day will at least get all the clutter picked up off the floors and counters! Try working 20 minutes a day of cleaning into the schedule. If you use an Advent Calendar or read Christmas stories before bed with the kids, include them on the 20 minutes of cleaning and then reward them with the holiday tradition. Set a timer and turn up the Christmas tunes!
Make it easy to clean up by making supplies readily available. Put extra trash bins throughout the house (next to the tree), along with mini brooms and wash cloths. Pick out a cinnamon-scented cleaning solution to give your home a holiday feel!
