In addition to your spring cleaning, you can also be prepping for all of the parties you will be having this spring. With a little planning, getting your house party-ready will be simple and effective. Check out these 5 Home Prepping Tips For Spring Parties!
First, preparation is key when planning a party and the same is true when prepping your home for party guests. Evaluate your home and see what needs to be done first. Do you have to declutter before cleaning? Are your carpets a mess with stains and dirt? After your evaluate what needs to be done first, make a list and spread out your cleaning tasks over a week or a few weeks. This will help you achieve something each day or each week, depending on how much time you have until your party. You can even divide your cleaning tasks by rooms. First, tackle the kitchen then the living room, etc. If you want to save your sanity, just keep telling yourself that the whole house won’t get cleaned in one day!
