WELCOME TO HELPING HANDS CLEANING SERVICES!
Quickly becoming one of the top cleaning companies on the Gulf Coast!
The Holidays are here and we are all running around in circles trying to prepare! Sounds familiar im sure lol. For most of us we plan, plan and plan more but making the move to get started is the hardest part. We all make lists of everything that we need, call family and friends to make arrangements then comes the hard work of getting the house in order!
Most of us this time of year have stuff scattered all over the house, cluttered and generally just not clean. As much as we hate to, the best place to start is with all of that clutter. I read a little saying on another blog that cracked my up and I wanted to share it with you! “You don’t want to put lipstick on a donkey.” That idea cracks me up every time. But it is true. "Lipstick on a donkey is not really the look we are going for."
Lets just jump right in to the nitty gritty and get started!
1] Remove the Clutter: As with most, procrastination is much easier than getting to it but that will only stress you out and drive you crazy. The sooner you start the better but with the Holidays on top of us you just have to make it happen.
The best way to remove the clutter for the Holidays is go room by room picking up all of the items you really don't need or use in that room right now. You can place them in a closet until the Holidays are over, place them in a box, the attic or any where that is out of the way. Just remember, the longer you wait the more stressing it can be!
2] Work room by room: Be sure and work room by room, not just running around like a mad person all over the house. You will go nuts if you try running around frantically. I like to start in a room going clock wise around the room just like when I'm cleaning not to miss a corner. Break it down by room and organize it to make it simpler and less stressing.
3] Get energized to keep working: The best way I find to get energized while cleaning is with music and not just some slow beat music but higher energy music with a beat. That always gets me moving and keeps me going. Remember to keep working at it once your started. If you stop at any point it is next to impossible to going again. If you have kids or roommates, get them involved with you to make it more fun. You can all dance around to music, play a game etc. The most energizing effect is seeing a room clean! That always motivates me to continue!
4] Holiday Decorating: So, the house is clean, organized and clutter free right ! If not, go back to step one and start over but at this point we will assume the house is ready for Holiday decorating, good food and good times with friends and family! Now that the house is clean it's time for the exciting part of decorating! Go grab your decorations , place them in the living room or biggest room in the house and start from there. I like putting up the tree first for Christmas, it always gets my in the spirit! How ever you like to do it just get the decorations out and get started!
ENJOY AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
I will keep you updated on my decorations. We are planning on putting up a light show on our house with lights timed with Christmas music! I'm not the most technically advanced individual so we shall see how that comes out! LOL
