Dreaming of a "holiday house" can be lovely--if pre-holiday home improvements are kept realistic. To hone down your list, try today's Holiday Home Spruce-Up Exercise. Cut to the chase with today's Christmas Countdown assignment!
Get ready for Christmas with holiday help from sister site Organized Christmas.
Driving to work or school today, it's hard to avoid the splattered remains of Jack O'Lantern on the street--and the bowl of Halloween candy is looking mighty picked over after last night's Trick-or-Treaters. Time for a decor swap!
Tuck Halloween-specific decorations into a box, and replace them with Autumn or Thanksgiving-themed items to keep holiday decorations looking fresh and timely.
To keep the house clean without a lot of effort, make use of "wait time" in your day. Wipe down the refrigerator doors as you wait for water to boil. Sort the magazine stack during television commercials, or straighten the coat closet when waiting for a family member. Micro-cleaning makes good use of spare minutes, and goes a long way to keeping things organized on the fly.
