Happy November!
Happy November from Misty Clean!

If you went all out decorating for Halloween, you may have done a good deal of fall house cleaning. However, if you did not, ensure that you complete the following chores before hanging up seasonal decorations. The steps you take now will make the post-holiday clean up easier for the entire family!

Make a List

Make a list of all of the stuff you want to get done before your holiday guests show up. This is a great way to keep yourself organized but also to let other people in the house know how they can help.

Say ‘So Long’ Clutter

If you’re planning to bring in new stuff this season (from new decorations to new toys), you need to get rid of the old stuff you don’t use anymore. Take this time to declutter your home. Go through the house room by room, and honestly assess the stuff you’ve been hanging onto. Decide what you need to keep and what you can sell, donate, or throw away.

Start Big

Start with the big projects on your list. If there is a room that needs to be repainted, or you need to clean the gutters start there. Don’t start with the tiny details, or you may run out of time for the big stuff.

Don’t Forget to Dust

Give the house a good dusting before you bring out the boxes of holiday decorations, then dust all of those decorations before putting them out. The dust is also something you need to stay on top of all season. Consider getting a small hand vacuum to help you. It is great for picking up stray pine needles, cookie crumbs, and yes even dust. They are also good for controlling pet hair.

Prepare the Guest Rooms

If you’re going to have house guests, make sure those guest rooms are clean and stocked with things people may need. Consider getting a few extra toothbrushes and toiletries to have on hand just in case people forget them.

Decorate Reasonably

As you’re planning your holiday decorating, remember to decorate for the life you actually live. If you have a toddler or a new pet, perhaps leave the super delicate, irreplaceable décor in the box this year. If you have a very full season ahead, it’s okay to not put out the model train if you won’t have the time to keep it clean. There is no shame in simplifying your decorating game.
