Christmas is quickly approaching and if you are like me, you are planning a family get together or even have family come in town for the holidays. My house is not the biggest, I have many rooms but they are rather small, perfect for me and my family but a little too small to host gatherings. At least that’s what I always thought.
This year, I decided to make room for everyone and get my house ready for a fun family gathering on Christmas Eve. I knew I would have to organize my house as well as remove some furniture and everyday items. I needed storage space, quickly. How in the world would I be able to store all the things like pillows, blankets and everyday items that usually lay around the house? I decided to head over to Lowe’s to check out their space saving and organizing ideas.
I found a few of the Ziploc® Space Bags® while strolling the store and decided since they worked well during our travels, they should work well for de-cluttering my house. I was a little bit too excited I think, as soon as I got home I was ready to remove all the extra blankets and pillows that constantly lay around my sofa, I have a bit of a blanket addiction.
Besides all the blankets and pillows on my couch, my dogs also have a pillow addiction and all their dog beds are all over the very little precious floor space that I have in my living room. I swear my living room looks like a giant blanket fort at all times. Ready to get comfy is our motto. Not for the upcoming Christmas Party, well… Kind of, of course I want everyone to be comfortable but without all my very own clutter.
The Ziploc® Space Bags® are airtight, waterproof, water tight, reusable and also protect against bugs, moths, dirt, mildew and odors. Perfect solution to store all my extra and unwanted pillows, blankets and dog beds. Since we are low on storage space, these Ziploc® Space Bags® are awesome. Place your items inside the bag, be sure to pick one of the Ziploc® Space Bags® options and see how easy it is to reduce the clutter and save 3 times the storage space, all at the same time*.
We put all the pillows, dog beds and blankets neatly inside and vacuumed the Ziploc® Space Bag® to pull out the air and voila, we now have lots of blankets and pillows under our bed and no one will ever know and they store neatly without getting dirty. I love it!
I was excited, so excited that I kind of got addicted to the Ziploc® Space Bags® and wanted to store everything in sight. It works well in your closet, remove summer cloths and make room for winter outfits or in the bathroom if you have too many towels. Just place them in the Ziploc® Space Bag® and you are creating a lot of extra storage for you and your family. The possibilities are endless, so be sure to check them out the next time you are in need of decluttering your home.
Now that you have de-cluttered your home, I have a small checklist to get your home in tip top shape, especially if your in-laws call and say they are 30 minutes away, just grab the list and quickly pull out your Ziploc® Space Bags® and trust me, your home will be ready for visitors in no time.
You will get your room clean in no time and even have time left to make a batch of my favorite Peppermint Cookie Bark, check out the recipe below. It is a wonderful snack for your guests to enjoy or to give as gifts. It sure was a hit at my last Family gathering and I know it will be a hit this Christmas, too.
See, I got you tips to clean your house and make a delicious snack all in under 30 minutes, if you have a little extra time be sure to clean under your bed before putting all the Ziploc® Space Bags® there or behind your couch, just incase the dust bunnies decided to run away from you. Happens to me all the time! However, if you are short on time… Don’t worry about it! No one will come to your home to inspect it with a white glove, they will visit to hang out with you and enjoy your family. Let it go and enjoy the party. After all your Ziploc® Space Bags® aren’t worried if a dust bunny walks by, so why should you?
From my home to yours, Merry Christmas. Hug your family and share a few extra laughs this year.
