We all like to look at pretty pictures and talk about decorating for the holidays. We like to read all the blogs, pin all the pictures, and plan out our holiday decor. Fun fun fun. But for some of us, eh hem, we need to stop dreaming all day about decorating and focus in on something that should come first. I know. Killjoy.
If our home is filled with clutter, too much stuff and is just generally not clean or tidy we should really address those issues first. I know. Hate me. But then we can start holiday decorating with a fresh clean foundation, and that is where the real fun is! Remember one of my favorite little sayings, “You don’t want to put lipstick on a donkey.” That idea cracks me up every time. But it is true. Lipstick on a donkey is not really the look we are going for.
Don’t let these common misconceptions derail your decluttering efforts.
Having trouble staying organized at home? We hate to break it to you, but it might be you (not your stuff) that’s the problem. We asked professional organizers to reveal common decluttering missteps they often see tripping up people’s best intentions.

Every family has its struggles with clutter — whether it’s stacks of papers or a cluttered and cramped bathroom. Here are 52 ideas you can use right now or space out over the course of a year.

Think you’re the only disorganized person in your neighborhood? The National Association of Professional Organizers reports that we don’t use 8 percent of the stuff we keep. We wear 20 percent of the clothes we own, while the other 80 percent hangs there just in case, and 25 percent of adults say they pay bills late because they lost them.
If you have stacks of papers, frazzled mornings or lost car keys, use the following ideas to help you organize your family and home!

Learn how to clean like a champion with this list of the best-ever household cleaning hints and tips.
From cleaning up broken glass to deterring pests or tackling stains on clothes and furniture, we have 40 simple, natural solutions that work.
1. Eucalyptus oil removes the gummy residue left by shop stickers.
2. Buffing a marble tabletop with car polish leaves a thin, invisible film that helps reduce the risk of stains.
3. To remove furniture indentations from pure wool carpet place a tea towel over the area and then press with a warm iron. The heat will lift the fibres. Do not attempt this with synthetic or a wool/synthetic mix carpet.

When it comes to organization, there are two types of people: those willing to put in the time to live a clean and orderly life and those who are not.
It can be difficult to keep your cool when everyone is making messes and you are the only one cleaning up, especially in a roommate situation. You want to live in a clean and organized home. You feel that everyone living there should share the responsibility. So, what can you do to make your home a nicer place to live?

With a little forethought, you can come up with decorating and cleaning solutions to counter sharp claws, muddy paws, moulting hair and the occasional accident.
1. Upholster sofas and seating with stain-resistant fabric that can be spot cleaned. Leather may be durable and wipe-clean, but it is still subject to pet wear and tear and sharp nails. So, protect your sofa arms from scratches and pulled fabric threads with arm covers to match your sofa. And consider shop-bought slip covers. They suit most standard sofas and are available in durable, easy-wash cottons.
2. Cover the bristles of a broom with a stocking, and use it to sweep up clumps of pet hair from both soft and hard flooring surfaces.
