Keeping a household in order is tough work on a day-to-day basis. It’s even more challenging when the holidays roll around, and easy to find yourself overwhelmed with all there is to do sometimes. The best thing you can do is get organized early in the season.

Make a List and Check it Twice

When planning for any holiday event, whether it be shopping, cleaning, or making time to see festive lights, writing (or typing) it all out will help you see the big picture. Make lists and check them twice! You’ll be more apt to stick to your budget when you can plan.


Organizing can seem daunting, but when you break it up day by day, it’s not so scary. There is nothing like seeing everything organized and knowing that everything is in its rightful place. One of the number one places to hide gifts is in your closets, so de-cluttering and purging items you no longer use, or need will give you more room. Get rid of things around the house and donate to a local charity. This is the season of giving, after all.

Keep it Clean

Keeping a home clean and clutter-free will help keep anxiety at bay. You may already be an expert at keeping your house neat and tidy, but others could struggle with finding the time to finish it. Discovering a good schedule can keep you sane or even create one of the wonders of your work so that you can take it little by little. What if you can’t find the time with everything else going on? That’s where a good cleaning service comes in. Imagine not having to lift a finger! Give Casali Cleaning a call for a free estimate.
