Holidays are not the time for procrastination, particularly if you are planning to have guests stay with you. Giving your home a top-to-bottom cleaning is not fun, so this might be a prime reason for procrastination. Don’t do it. You want to be ready for your guests when they arrive and being prepared with a clean, organized house in advance will give you more time for that last-minute shopping.
Whether you have invited many guests or just one, and whether they are staying overnight or longer, you want them to feel welcome and comfortable in your home. This can mean anything from a thoroughly cleaned house to personal touches for each guest.

The holidays are almost here. Being organized and planning ahead is a great way to enjoy this merriest of seasons. The best way to remain calm and have fun is to make your plans early and create an organized to-do list to carry out your projects leaving no time for panic and plenty of time to enjoy the season with family, friends and guests. Here are some tips and tricks to keep you organized this season...
