It’s not a new fact that after the holidays are over, we have to clean up the mess. Well, that’s not entirely true: there are people who enjoy this task and make it a sort of tradition to start getting ready for next year’s celebrations right away! However, if you’re part of the group of people who don’t like cleaning at all and would rather do something else than put things in order again (like traveling), then this post is for you.
If you’re trying to clean up your home, one of the best ways to do so is by getting rid of clutter. To begin with, take a good look at all the items in your house and ask yourself: “Do I use this?” If the answer is no—throw it away! It’s important not to hold on to things that are only taking up space. If it doesn’t spark joy in your life and bring value, then get rid of it!
You can also use what I call the “one-in-one-out rule” when deciding how many items should enter into your home: every time something new comes into your home as an addition (like a gift), another item must leave (like an old appliance or piece of furniture). This way you keep only what’s necessary for everyday life.
Put the decorations away
If you’re like most people, your house is full of holiday decorations right now. You’ve got trees and wreaths and lights, plus all kinds of ornaments and decorative items. While it’s fun to have these things out while they’re in use during the holidays, it’s important to remember that they need to be put away once they lose their purpose. For example:
- If you have a Christmas tree, take it down after New Year’s Day and store it until next year.
- If you were given a Christmas hamper filled with candy canes, fruitcake and other sweets during the season—don’t keep that around! It will only tempt you into overeating later on when your diet kicks back in again after the holidays are over. It may seem wasteful at first (you could always donate them), but in the long run this will save money on visits from Santa Claus later on!
Do the dishes
The dishes are one of the first things to be forgotten after the holidays. It can be easy to let them pile up until it’s time for guests again, but nobody wants to use a sink full of dirty dishes when there’s already so much else that needs cleaning around the house. So do yourself a favor and clean up after every meal!
It’s also important to know what goes in your dishwasher and what doesn’t. If you have delicate items like china or glassware, it’s best not to throw them into the dishwasher because they can break from being exposed to water under pressure for so long—and then washing by hand would be even more work than doing it all at once at once with your machine!

Organize your kitchen cabinets and cupboards.
If you’re like most people, your kitchen cabinets are probably overflowing with random items that don’t belong in the kitchen. If this is the case, it’s time to get organized! Gather all of your belongings together and sort them into categories—food storage items, cleaning supplies, cooking utensils and more. Once everything is categorized, evaluate each item and determine whether or not it has a place in your kitchen. If not, throw it out!
We hope these tips have helped you get your house in order. The holidays are a wonderful time of year, but they can also be stressful if we don’t maintain our homes properly. By following these tips, we can all enjoy the season with peace of mind!
