Tips to Get Your Home Holiday Ready

Happy December friends! Can you believe the countdown to Christmas has begun?

This is the most wonderful time of the year! I truly love the Christmas season and all the celebrating that it brings! So today I wanted to share my easy tips to get your home Holiday ready!

(This post is sponsored by HOOVER, however all thoughts and opinions are my own. I’m honored to partner with HOOVER this month and have included affiliate links for your convenience)

As the Holidays approach I want to remember what the true meaning of the season is…celebrating the best birthday of all! And that means lots of parties, dinners with friends, and family gatherings. I don’t want to miss out on any time spent with loved ones making memories. So, it’s important to me to have my home ready for the Holiday! I stick with these three tips:

  1. De-clutter
  2. Decorate
  3. Clean

My first tip is to de-clutter one room at a time. Remove all outgrown or unused items and organize what you keep. Have a space for everything. And store those items in reach for easy access. One creative way is to use vintage pieces for storage. Like the cabinet above for DVDs and the basket for throw blankets. We always take our discarded items to the local Goodwill.

De-cluttering creates a space that will help you feel calm and relaxed during the Christmas season.

My second tip to get your home Holiday ready, is to decorate! This is actually my favorite part 🙂 I think it’s important to decorate simply and thoughtfully. Decorate one area at a time. Display collections that have sentimental value. Use your existing everyday decor to add greenery or a Christmas bouquet. Adding fresh or faux greenery and garland gives a perfect touch without being too busy. A single strand of twinkle lights around a mirror or shelf gives that festive glow without being costly. And lastly, I love to use consumables. Candles and fresh fruits make nice Christmas decorations and don’t have to take up storage space when the Holiday is over.

 All that decorating makes for a messy house! Flocking and greenery is covering the floor…so now it’s time to CLEAN, which is my final tip! But let’s face it, we want the cleaning to be easy and quick!

Enter the HOOVER ONEPWR SYSTEM family of nine cord-free products that share the same interchangeable Lithium-Ion Battery! These products are available at HOOVERAMAZON, and select retailers nationwide.

It’s important to have time-saving cleaning products, so you can spend your time celebrating the season!

Vacuuming the flocking and greenery is easy with the lightweight ONEPWR Blade MAX Cordless Vacuum – Kit

I love the handy features…it provides powerful suction and can move from rugs to hard floors with the push of a button. It also has an easy attachment brush and upholstery tool that converts to a hand-held vacuum in one simple step. That makes cleaning spaces like the mantle or hearth a breeze! It also uses the interchangeable battery that gives you up to 25 minutes of runtime on a full charge.

Now, when it comes to saving time…this ONEPWR FloorMate JET Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner – Kit has impressed me with it’s ability to vacuum and wash at the same time! This gives you one-step cleaning on multiple surfaces with a microfiber brush roll. And remember, it’s powered by the same rechargeable battery! My hard wood floors look so shiny and fresh now! All ready for the Holidays!

And finally, the ONEPWR Spotless GO Cordless Portable Carpet Cleaner – Kit is perfect for the accidents that inevitably come with the busyness of the season. If you have a nervous pet, like our Jovi B…she sometimes has an accident on our rug when we have lots of guests. Or, all the kids coming and going make spills and messes. The Spotless Portable Carpet Cleaner makes clean up easy! I appreciate it’s compact, lightweight size and it’s powerful to remove stains on carpet, rugs, upholstery and stairs. And once again, uses the same rechargeable battery that lasts up to 25 minutes on a full charge!

I definitely feel a tiny bit of anxiety this time of year…with a sense of trying to get “all the things” done, don’t you?!? So I want to try to lighten your load this season, by giving you useful Tips on getting your home Holiday ready! I hope you find these tips helpful and hopefully I’ve relieved some of your Holiday anxiety! Now, you just have to get the gift list checked off (any of these products would be perfect gifts too).

Let’s spend more time making memories this season with those we love…and less time cleaning!

And guess what!? I’ve partnered with HOOVER to GIVE AWAY one Hoover ONEPWR Blade Max Cordless Vacuum Cleaner to one of you…just in time for the Holidays!
