The holiday and New Year’s season is a time of friends, food, and family. Celebrations are imminent, and your home plays host to everyone from coworkers to distant cousins. The season of giving is here, and getting your home ready for the flood of visitors, gifts, and parties is an inevitable challenge. It’s important to be able to enjoy your holidays, instead of being overworked by them. Keeping your house clean and tidy through it all is a challenge for anybody: try taking the stress out of the equation by letting Junk King take care of all that post-party junk removal.
While you dearly love the annual fruit basket from your great-aunt in Duluth, and are genuinely attached to the excitement with which small children tear into their gifts, the mess afterwards can turn holiday cheer into seasonal panic. Waking up the day after your holiday party to deal with piles of cardboard boxes, wrapping paper, plastic toy packaging and the mysterious “extra parts” from assembly-required toys can ruin a perfectly good vacation day. All that extra garbage is unsightly and frustrating at the very least, and leaving it all piled up next to your house doesn’t exactly compliment the seasonal lighting on your porch.
To keep the stress at bay, there are a few ways to keep your house looking its best. First and foremost, try cleaning as you go along. Nobody will object to a quick run-through of your living room while they’re having pre-dinner cocktails, to pick up napkins, wine corks, used paper plates or dirty glassware. Asking the kids to pick up their own wrapping paper as they open, or keeping a plastic bag on hand for the bits of cardboard and toy packaging, keeps them from leaving a mess when they insist on playing with their new toys immediately.
If you’re the kind of person who saves wrapping paper and likes to recycle empty bottles, make sure you have a place for them to go ahead of time. Request an extra recycling bin from your trash provider, and have a box ready for folded, leftover gift bags or paper. For things you can’t save, keep trash bags on hand: and when the parties are over, the guests have gone home, and you’re ready for some well-earned relaxation, call up Junk King at 1-888-888-JUNK to have it all carted away. This means you don’t have to deal with backlogs of garbage bags or watching your Christmas tree disintegrate slowly on the curb while you wait for regular trash pickup, and gets the post-party chaos out from under your feet.
The holiday season is a great time to enjoy the people you love, from close friends to distant family. Hosting parties and having out-of-town guests is a wonderful way to enjoy the season. To keep your house tidy and keep you stress-free, planning for the holiday excess in advance will make a world of difference. By tidying up as you go, reusing what you can, and hiring Junk King’s professional hauling teams to deal with the piles of garbage you inevitably find yourself with, you can make sure your holiday, and the days that follow in 2012, are stress-free.
