Holidays are a wonderful time to make lasting memories with loved ones. However, they can be stressful and chaotic too! All that ends this year with these 4-stress free house cleaning tips for hosting a party because you deserve to enjoy the journey and the destination!
- Tip 1: Take a capture tour
- Tip 2: Creative problem solving
- Tip 3: Divide tasks
- Tip 4: Conquer with confidence
Tip 1: Take a capture tour.
Above all start with having fun! Turn on your favorite dance music and tour your house as if you were hired to clean it before listing it for sale. Dance through each room and jot down (capture) each section needing cleaned. Also, be sure to gather rugs, draperies and decorative tablecloths or linens you’ll need to drop off at the dry cleaners soon. If you have an in-home voice assist device like Alexa or Google assist, then just ask it to add the cleaning tasks to your to-do list. This leaves more time for dancing!
Tip 2: Creative problem-solving.
Once you’ve completed your capture tour, go through your task list like a CEO. Get creative in how you can accomplish each task by outsourcing it. This could mean paying for someone else to do it, trading a service with a friend who’s good at or enjoys this sort of thing or finding a family member that can help. We’ve all tried playing Wonder Woman or Superman only to be a stressed out, uptight host by the time the guests arrived so learn from your past and ask for help. You’re still a superhero, don’t worry.
Tip 3: Divide tasks.
Re-write your list of cleaning tasks by grouping similar tasks together. Do it logically. For example, if you must pre-soak a few areas first, group that task with the clearing of clutter from the same areas. When we chunk two to three tasks together this makes our list a lot more manageable and less overwhelming. As a result, this reduces our stress even with all the cleaning we have in front of us still.
Tip 4: Conquer with confidence!
Now that you have divided you’re ready to conquer! Turn up the music and start with your favorite or easiest group of tasks. The goal is just to get started so that we don’t procrastinate until the day of the party and stress out. Starting with the easiest tasks will give you a sense of accomplishment and motivate you to finish cleaning your house for the party!
