The holidays are fast approaching and that means so is holiday entertaining!  Everyone talks about "spring cleaning" your home, but spring is now long gone.  There are several things you can do on a regular basis to keep your home neat, clean and organized so that you don't have to tear your home apart or your hair out while trying to get ready for parties and family events.  

One thing that definitely helps save time & energy when cleaning your house is having a quality vacuum cleaner. I have been looking for a better vacuum than the one I am currently using.  The home I currently live in has carpet and with my allergies and slight germ-aphobia, I vacuum all the time!  I have been looking at the vacuums made by BISSELL and saw that they have many cleaning tips you can find on their website.  

Here are a 4 tips of my own to help you get your house ready for holiday entertaining:

1. Spend 1-2 hours a week doing light cleaning. Clean the bathroom sink, commode & bathtub. Sweep the floors and vacuum  the carpet. Use a duster to dust your furniture. Clean the mirrors in the bathroom.

2. Once a month do heavier cleaning. Dust with furniture polish, mop the floors and wipe off all the baseboards and window casings. Clean the glass doors, knock down any cobwebs and

3. Make it a family affair! Get your kids and spouse involved by making up a chore chart and giving everyone different responsibilities to take care of.  Plan a special meal, dessert, trip to the park or family game night once a week or month as a treat for everyone's efforts.

4. Keep things as organized as possible & clutter to a minimum. Use shelving units, baskets, bins and containers to keep all your items organized and in their proper place. The key is to actually put things in their place. This way you have less to clean, put away, organize and go through each week and month and before parties and gatherings.

After the party, don't delay in cleaning up. Be sure to schedule time the next day to go ahead and do your basic clean up. Then just follow the other 4 tips and you will be ready for all your other family events without having to spend days cleaning.
