Holiday Home Checklist

The holidays are here! Over the next three weeks, your calendar is probably filled with events, grocery lists, and last minute to-dos. We want to make sure you don’t forget a single thing so we have created a quick-reference checklist for your home!

To Clean

Rugs and carpeting: If your rugs refuse to look clean, give us a call after the holidays so we can help you refresh your space with a fresh new customized rug!

Clean the blinds: We have a whole blog about how to clean your blinds without damaging them. If you don’t frequently clean your blinds, put it on the calendar to do it again every couple months or with the change in seasons. Don’t forget, if something happens to your blinds during the holidays, Budget Blinds offers one of the best warranties in the industry.

Pick-up around the house, dust shelves, empty trash cans: If you want to get your kids to participate, have one of their small Christmas presents wrapped early and offer it as an incentive to get them to clean the house with you!

To Buy

Tableware and cutlery: If you are having a significant number of people over, opt for paper plates and plastic cutlery instead of to avoid lots of dirty dishes at the end of the night. Same goes for napkins, opt for paper napkins instead of fabric. If the first thought that came to mind was cheap white tableware and cutlery, don’t worry, there are plenty of very nice, festive options in store too.

Candy: Candy works great as easy, festive decorations as well as obviously being a yummy treat.

Bathroom necessities: Stock up on hand soap, toilet paper, and air fresheners, especially if you have guests staying with you for a few days.

Games: If you don’t have any go-to games on hand, pick up a couple at the store to keep both kids and adults entertained.

Lastly, don’t forget to have fun! This is a busy time of year and while entertaining guests can be exhausting, remember that it’s not about having the perfect home and meal. It’s about spending time with loved ones and reflecting on all the wonderful things that happened this year.
