How to prepare your home for the holidays:

  1. Declutter
  2. Create extra sitting room for company
  3. Don’t forget to decorate

Declutter

You more than likely have some clutter that has piled up. If you aren’t sure where to put the stuff that you don’t need before company arrives, we have a few ideas. If you are looking to declutter you may want to consider selling on Facebook Marketplace or eBay. If you don’t want to take the time to list your items online you may just want to drop your things off at GoodWill or another charity that will donate them to those in need. What better thing to do during the holidays? 

Create extra sitting room for company

How much room do you have for sitting areas? With holidays means you have more people in your house than usual. You want to ensure that your guests have plenty of room to sit. If you don’t have enough chairs consider asking others to bring folding chairs or renting some yourself. 

Don’t forget to decorate

Does your house scream Christmas cheer? If not, and you are hosting a holiday party you may want to consider livening up your home with some festive decor. Consider stopping at your local department store or craft up your own winter wonderland with things you already have around the house. You can also find discounted decor on garage sale sites. You may also want to play some holiday music to liven up the atmosphere. If you aren’t sure where you should start, consider going on to HGTV.com for holiday decor tips.
