4 Tips for Cleaning up Junk before the Holidays

We all talk about Spring Cleaning but nobody ever talks about all the preparation that goes into a home to get it ready for holiday parties and family gatherings. Here are 4 tips to help clean up Junk & clutter before the holidays.

Declutter for the holidays in 1 week

Christmas parties and family gatherings are only a few weeks away. New gifts, toys, clothes, and more are going to be on their way to your home soon. We're here to help you take the stress out of getting your home ready for the holidays, so you can be more present and enjoy every bit of the season! Here are 4 tips to clean up junk before the holidays!


Tip #1: Snowball Effect

Make a snowball! It is the holiday season after all. This is our number 1 tip as you begin to declutter areas of your home. Start small and work your way up to the bigger areas. (Just like rolling a snowball!) Often times the hardest part is just getting started. Tackle a small closet, or a single cabinet first. You'll be surprised how much momentum this creates to tackle the rest of the home. Because lets face it - decluttering feels good!

Tip #2: Make a List!

This one is as simple as it sounds. Overwhelm and stress typically come from failing to make a decision. If you feel overwhelmed with all the preparation you need to do to get your home ready for the holidays. Grab a piece of paper and a pen. Write down everything you need to do. Start with the quickest/smallest task (See tip #1) This tip takes the "thinking" of what to do next off your plate and simply lets you go down your list.

Tip #3: Don't forget about the Toys

I never thought I would be one of the parents that have toys all over the house. With my little dude being 18 months now, I realize how wrong I was. Toys everywhere! With the holiday season coming up, I imagine there is going to be a new round of toys coming into the home. So, Tip #3 is to purge the toys before the new ones arrive! I'd encourage you to donate them as well. Below are some great local options if you live in the Lapeer Area Good Will Lapeer
