Organizing For The Holidays
Make a list and check it twice
Just like Santa, you have lists going on and we advise you to check it twice. When it comes to your home and keeping it organized, this is especially important. The holidays are upon us, and guests are getting ready to arrive. Do you have everything you need? Is your house organized and ready for family and friends? Here are a few quick, last minute tips to help you get through this holiday season.
Keep a list
Make a running list of items you may still need from the grocery store. Remember, big box stores are going to be insane right now. Some things you may still need like a last minute stocking stuffer or hostess gift can be found at the grocery store or local pharmacy. If small things are what you need, don’t spend your time at big box stores.
Almost anything can be ordered online these days, even cars! Get your list out and make a last minute order. Most stores offer the option of curbside pickup. Not only is this smart to avoid the craziness inside the store, but it also helps to keep you safe!
One room at a time
Before guests start to arrive, go through each room in your home and make sure everything is ready. Organize linens to make sure you have enough bedding and towels for overnight guests. Grab a duster and go through each room, dusting as you go. Vacuum or sweep each room and make sure there are no cobwebs on the ceiling.
Anything you can get done ahead of time will not only free up your time to spend with your loved ones, but it will take a lot of stress off your plate. Anything you can cook or bake ahead of time, do it! Wrap all the gifts and enlist the family to help. You will feel better knowing you are ahead of the game and prepared for all that is about to come.
Once the holidays are over, and before the decorations come down, contact a custom closet company, and get your home professionally organized before the holidays come around again. Do you have a proper place to store all your holiday decorations? Is there adequate storage space for guest linens? Working with a professional custom closet company will give you ideas for new ways to store things in your home and keep you organized in the new year and for many years to come.
