Pre-Holiday Cleaning
Thu, 12-12-2013 - 10:52am

I have the strong desire to scrub my house from top to bottom before Christmas.  Anyone else feeling the same way?  What big cleaning and/or organizing tasks do you hope to tackle before the next holiday hits?

I feel that need too. I started cleaning last night and besides sleeping i havent stopped since. I scrubbed my entire kitchen, the refrigerator, microwave, floor, outsides of cabinets, trash can, stove. Now im working on the living room, vacuuming, dusting, wiping down the walls and blinds. I just have to have it clean for Christmas. It didnt help that the kids knocked down the tree. It was a big mess so i had to fix that too. My fiance helped put the tree back up and redecorate it. I will do the bathrooms next then the bedrooms. Im getting tired just thinking of all this work.

I have a 20 day count down to clean that I use for the holidays. You can check it out here - only 5-10 minutes a day gets you a perfectly clean home for your guests.
