It might be the worst part of the holidays. The part you dread, stress out about before the part even begins. You can feel the stress grow as you set up for the event, and it only increases as the people arrive. You try to keep up with it, but with all your other hosting duties, it quickly gets out of hand. You ask your family to help, but they’re too busy having fun, and truthfully, they’d be powerless against it, too.
That’s right – it’s time to clean. But don’t panic! You can do this. And it doesn’t even have to be super painful. If you approach it the right way, keep a positive attitude, and have the right carrot dangling at the finish line, you can complete your cleaning without physical or emotional injury.
