Christmas is less than two weeks away, scary right!?
Whether you are hosting a gathering in your home, or have presents to give, baking to exchange, or travel arrangements to make; the holiday season can be a challenge to juggle. You have a million and one things to do. Unless you have a personal assistant, chef and professional housecleaner staffed daily, (which I am going to assume you don't), you need to develop a plan. Yes, goal setting for the holiday season. Look at your calendar. What's happening this week?
Here are a few tools to help you get the house cleaning done and your time organized, I hope this helps! Luckily for you, we CAN help with the house cleaning.
So... How do you find time to do it all?
Here’s a Hint: Sometimes you don’t do it all. If you’re obsessive about a perfectly immaculate house and the perfect meal and a Pinterest inspired party to go along with it… you may need to lower your expectations of yourself a little, you want to ENJOY. If you can't live without doing this, giver'!! But dont stress yourself out — let. it. go. We can not do it ALL. Your company won’t notice if you scrubbed every inch of the bathroom with a toothbrush. They probably won’t even care if there are paper napkins on the table. You know why they’re there? To visit, have fun, and enjoy your company. So relax, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy their presence.
Now that I have that out of the way, another way to find the time to do everything is to plan ahead. I can't stress this enough. Write it down if you must. All of it. The cleaning chores that 'need' to be done, the grocery lists, errands, the baking. Try to do as much as you can weeks before the event, so when the day comes you aren't slaving away on the tedious tasks.
Use your list and calendar as a guideline. If the bathrooms do not get cleaned on Sunday at 3pm... IT'S OK :)
FROM PERFECTION CLEANING TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, WE HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON!
