The family is coming!

Time to roll out the red carpet (or, at least, maybe vacuum the existing carpet).

If your family is coming for a visit in the next six weeks or if you’re hosting a holiday party for friends and family or the Thanksgiving or Christmas meal, you’ve got to get ready. The time is now.

Austinite Lorie Marrero, who created the Clutter Diet, has been working with Austin cleaning product company Lemi Shine to create a checklist of things to do to prepare for guests this holiday season. They’ll post it on LemiShine.com/holiday, but Marrero gave us some tips to get us through Thanksgiving and beyond.
