Dark Light

The holiday season is quickly approaching as we head for December and wait patiently for the arrival of Christmas. That’s why right now is the perfect time to prepare yourself and your home for Christmas before the holiday rush hits and the days get busier. Even if you can tackle a few of these tasks, you’ll save time and relax more instead of working hard.

Deep Clean

While this might already be part of your holiday routine, it’s a great time to clean the entire home before family and friends arrive. Take the time to clean the whole house inside and out, ensuring you get into all the corners and hidden spots. Also, this can be a great time to clean the carpets, especially if you host multiple dinners.

Calendar Review

The holidays can be extremely busy and hectic, especially if you don’t have a sound calendar system. Whether you use your phone or a paper calendar, review the next month, check what events are coming up, and ensure you aren’t missing any dates. This will help you stay organized, and you won’t miss any of the holiday fun! Make sure to get the whole family together to make sure everyone has their events on the schedule.

Declutter & Donate

The holiday season brings many occasions for gift-giving, which usually means we have many new items at home. While this is exciting, it usually means our home becomes a bit more full and cluttered, so it’s a great time to look and see if you can declutter. Set out 2 boxes while you work labelled trash and donate and make it a goal to fill both boxes. Once you’ve filled the donation box, make it a family trip as you donate your items and create a new tradition for the holiday season.

Double Dinners

After a long day, it can be hard to keep up the motivation to cook dinner. So, to save yourself time in the future, double your dinner recipes now and freeze the second portion. That way, you’ll have a few dinners on hand that need to be defrosted and won’t take much effort.
