5 Household Tasks You Must Accomplish Before The Holidays

1. Purge and declutter.

Before you begin bringing in packages, presents, and holiday decorations, get what is already in the house under control. Take some time to go through each room and just get rid of anything that you no longer find useful.

2. Restock your pantry.

Holiday cooking requires a lot of essential items. Take this time to go through your pantry, and figure out what types of things you are going to need to prepare for your holiday classics.

How do I prepare my kitchen for the holidays? Do you love to bake? Be sure to have plenty of flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and soda handy.

If you are famous for your Mac and Cheese, stock up on noodles.

Whatever it is that you love to cook, save yourself some trips to the store by having the non-perishable portions of the meal on hand.

There is nothing more frustrating than beginning a baking or cooking project only to discover partway through that you are missing a necessary ingredient. (Ask me how I know!) So stock up and save yourself some frustration.

3. Switch and freshen up your decor.

During the year your home can begin to take on a bit of a worn or frumpy look. You can get rid of that by freshening up your decor.

How can I spruce up my house for the holidays? One of my favorite quick fixes for making my home feel holiday-ready is to rearrange the furniture in a room or two. Simply moving things around makes everything feel fresh and new. Plus, a bonus is that when you move things, it’s really easy to do a quick vacuum in those places that were previously covered. So you get a deeper clean with that satisfaction of a new-to-you room!

Preparing your home for Christmas doesn’t have to mean huge changes. Simply add some new touches. Some different throw pillows, new picture frames, or a different area rug can change the way a room looks without you having to put much effort or money into it.

That little change will make you feel better about decorating for the holidays, and about having company over.

How To Make Your Home Holiday Ready

4. Help your kids sort their toys in preparation for holiday gifts.

Go through toys with your kids, and encourage them to get rid of at least 3 or 4 items, in preparation for bringing in new items. 

This is a great way to introduce your children to the idea of giving. Take the gently used items to a family in need who could use the help, or to your local charity.

5. What should a pre-holiday deep clean include?

This is related to the purge, but not exactly. Once you have cleared all of the clutter out of your house, it is time for you to deep clean.

Dust all of the baseboards, shampoo the carpets and get rid of the mysterious dust from under the stove. This is the time to make sure that your house is going to be in top condition for whatever holiday company comes your way.

By working on these 5 Household Tasks You Must Accomplish Before The Holidays you can get the deep clean done now. That means when the holidays get here, you’ll only be left with the occasional dusting and wipe-down.
