The holidays are a time for celebration, but also a time of unexpected messes. A question that I get asked frequently is how we control our messes living in a home with lots of whites and neutrals. From floors to tables and countertops, messes increase during the holiday season. If you are like me, you enjoy having a clean environment to cozy up in. Creating a clean and cozy environment during the holiday season may be easier than you think. Today I am sharing some tips on how to not be afraid of Messes during the Holiday Season. While these tips will help especially right now, you can take these tips and use them in every season and in your daily life. This Post is Sponsored by Bissell, as always, the tip and opinions are entirely my own.
Remember, it’s also ok to embrace the mess and imperfections as well! One of my favorite tips in my new book, Cozy White Cottage Seasons is a tip talking about there being no rules. My main goal is to create a cozy space for my family and for everyone that comes into our home. While my version of cozy may not be your version of cozy, these tips can help everyone in creating a mess-free home. Especially now during the holidays.
When decorating for the holidays, and for any season change, really. I like to work with a clean slate by vacuuming and dusting. Then, while I am decorating and styling, I like to clean as I go. The BISSELL® AeroSlim™ Hand Vacuum is the perfect hand-vac for keeping near a year to vacuum up little messes like broken ornaments, garland sheddings, and baking crumbs. It is also great for quick pickups on furniture and in tight spaces. I love that it is cordless so I can take it with me wherever I need to go without having to worry about finding an outlet. It’s also super compact so it can be stored in a cupboard for easy access. If you would like to find out more about the Aeroslim™ Hand Vaccum, click here [ HERE].
Create a space where you can gather clutter, paper, and everyday items for the season. Gathering some of these items and tucking them away to create more of a clean space for you to be stress-free and enjoy your moments with family and guests. Whether if it’s a tote, basket, closet, or even a room. Designate a space to move clutter temporarily. While this is by no means a permanent fix for keeping things clean, it does help for this particular season and time of cleaning.
