Walk your home and look for random items such as coats, miscellaneous pieces of mail, and other misplaced objects. As they say, a place for everything and everything in its place. Throw away that coupon mailer that has been on your counter for six months; it is of no use to you, the coupons expired three months ago.
Focus On Where They Are
The goal is to clean your entire home but first, focus on rooms where guests are likely to congregate, like the dining room, kitchen, and living room. Don’t get stuck cleaning out the back of your bedroom closet when that room is off-limits to any guests anyway!
