With the festive season on the way, will you be hosting overnight guests? How is the guest room looking? Oh wait, have you been treating it like a junk room?
Well, now’s the perfect time to eliminate the junk and welcome your guests instead. All those deferred decisions in the shape of stuff – the “I’ll just put it here for now” stuff, the stuff waiting for that garage sale or online auction, the stuff that belongs to someone else but you’re holding onto it for them, the stuff that you can’t even remember what it was for or why you kept it, the stuff you thought someone else might find useful. It’s time to get it out to make way for your guests. Know what I mean?
Make way for the guests and make room for a little extra living once they’ve gone. It’s time to make decisions on that stuff now. If you’re holding a garage sale, set a date. If the stuff belongs elsewhere, put it there. If you’re stuff is for someone else, set a deadline for them to come and get it by. (I guarantee they won’t want most of it. Be sure to make it their responsibility to get rid of the stuff, not yours).
You get the idea. Now is a great time to set the tone for the coming New Year.
So make way and then give the room a good clean. Your guests will appreciate it now. You will appreciate it even more when you have the space to yourself again.
